I'll be a new grad (BSN) this May and I plan to take my NCLEX in June. I would LOVE to be a clinic nurse but most clinics and family practices that I've called told me that although they accept new grad RN's, they need to already be certified.
So I saw an open position at a clinic for a Medical Assistant PRN which I think will work out with my schedule until I graduate and have to study for the NCLEX...in your opinion do you think that this is a good route to take or should I just wait until I pass my boards to begin applying?
From my understanding, medical assistants and RN's work closely in a clinic, and oftentimes they perform some of the same tasks. I thought having experience as a medical assistant in a clinic setting would help me get my foot in the door if any RN positions open up by the time I get certified?
I'd be so grateful for any opinions/advice!
