I have been at this GI office/clinics for a little over a week and I'm contemplating leaving. I have 7 years experience in the hospital in surgery and IR experience and this is first time in clinic but has been VERY stressful. I have been running a clinic within a clinic and feel like there isn't enough hours and know there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. Between answering 60-70 patient phone calls, helping the doctor with clinic, checking all the labs/reports, making appointments, insurance authorizations, med refills, and traveling to and from satellite clinic there aren't enough hours in the day. I have had NO orientation at all the girl I replaced left before I got orientation. So basically been on own. Other nurses in clinic help when they can but that's not that much. Is this normal clinic nursing? Because I find it much more stressful than the hospital. Oh I also took a $6/hr pay cut for the job.
