I have been a RN in an Internal Medicine Clinic almost 2 years now. My supervisor came to me and stated she is trying to get a lead nurse position approved and I may be her top candidate. She said some of the responsibilities is scheduling nurses, communicating with the RN/LPNs different protocols, occasionally meeting with the head physicians to discuss/implement new processes etc as well as continuing to work for my physician. I feel I am doing all of the above (minus the scheduling) right now, and I am wondering if a current or former head/lead clinic RN can possibly give me insight of this position or their experiences. I do have my BSN and have been thinking about management classes, but unsure if I want to go back to school. This would be a good opportunity if it pans out to test the waters of that type of position. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Congrats on the opportunity. No experience there, but hope you get the chance to shine!
