    I work in a doctor's office, and make the same amount as the hospital nurses in the area. My office has weekend and evening hours, with 20% shift differential. The benefits (health, dental, pension) are comparable to hospital. The only thing that isn't as good is the tuition reimbursement, the hospitals give about twice what the clinic gives.

    I am an LPN in an office. I get an 1.5hrs. for lunch, live three miles from work, get paid vacation, get bonuses, get taken to lunch by my boss (and of course the drug reps.) get to leave early if we need to, without being docked, and make 17.00 an hour. He pays insurance, and AFLAC. And gives a scrubs allowance. I go home for lunch do a load of laundry, get a jump on dinner and let the dogs out. I am very fortunate!

    The pay scale can change if its a specialist as apposed to a pcp. I know r.n's in offices making around 20.00 per hour. Im sure the doc's are fully aware that working for them eliminates the shifts and holidays. Thats why they can keep the pay down some.

    I applied at a clinic more than prepared to take $10/hr less than I made at my $26/hr night shift hospital job... the decreased stress, lack of night, weekend, and holiday shifts made it more than appealing... Except I discovered they were willing to pay me a wage that was only $2 less than my current and the exact same as I made whenever I worked day shift at the hospital. Their retirement was better and the other benefits comparable. They sounded almost apologetic when they made me the offer... would I be willing to accept $24/hr??? I was like, "That would be fine, thank you." Inside I was screaming for joy. If they'd only known I would've happily accepted so much less.

    Where I live, there is a big surplus of RNs who can't find jobs. Because of this, all the doc's offices here are all RN staffed, no MAs and hardly any LVNs. Most office RNs here work for a low salary, or about $15. an hour if paid hourly.

    In my current position as office nurse, I make the same pay as I made 18 years ago working in the hospital. But, the tradeoff is not having to work weekends, and holidays. I am the only nurse in our clinic, and even though my hours are 8-5 (1 hr lunch), I am often still there til 7pm, and am so busy, I end up bringing my uneaten lunch home to the dog.

    hi! any advice for me? ill be working in a clinic too, and im going to be the only nurse in the clinic. what do u usually do?

    I'd ask the nurses around here but I swear there aren't any. Their all MA's. My mom is friends with several doctors and tried to get me an interview, but all 3 doc's said they didn't hire RN's, only MA at their office.
    You have hit the nail on the head. The MA position was created by the medical profession so that doctors could pay their office personnel $10 or $11 an hour. Any other claim is hogwash. My daughter got her first health care job in an office, where she was quoted $10 an hour, then when she took the job, it turned into $9 an hour.

    I work in a Clinic, and also the hospital. The Clinic pays $10.00 less than what I make at the hospital. I feel the work is just as important because we make the same decisions as I do at the hospital but not as hectic a pace as at the hospital. I also do not get a cost of living raise or a raise of any kind. No benefits.I also work 8-5pm and no weekends. They want me to work more at the Clinic but the pay is so low.
