New lpn grad, starting in urgent care?

  1. 0
    Okay so I am a new LPN grad and I have yet to worK. I did a few per diem shifts at a Assisted Living facility but that is it. I went on an interview today and they offered me a job working in the Urgent Care center, 3d/week, 12 hour shifts. I am soo exrtemely nervous! I need to know if I should be going into this type of field as a new grad or is it going to be too over whelming? Should I Just stick to the Assisted Living for now? HELPpPpP?!?!?

    It sounds like an exciting opportunity for you. Don't be so anxious. They (employer) know the limitations of your scope of practice & the fact that you are a new grad. They should provide you with close supervision until you are competent & confident enough to work more independently. Because of your scope of practice, you will always have a qualified RN or physician as an immediate clinical supervisor. Because it is an urgent care center, they will rapidly transfer any patients experiencing truly serious or life-threatening situations. Mostly, you will be tending to cuts, bruises, N/V, dizzyness, etc. . nothing you can't learn to handle.

    Just do it! The best way to learn is to just take a leap. The above comment is correct, nothing you cannot handle.
