Quote from P_RN
clinics- more autonomy
Doctors' offices- bankers hours (usually)
Hospitals-less autonomy, less control over hours
clinics-less money, sometimes less desirable clientele-but not usually
Doctors' offices-little money, potential for underuse of your education
IMHO only. I have done all and my favorite was the doctor's office where I brought home $232 a month!
Hospitals--If you like doing procedures ie. caths, IVs...etc you'll like the hosp., good money too.
Clinics--autonomy, something different all the time.
Offices--you get to know your patients VERY well, over longer periods of time, develop long-term relationships with them. (which can be a pro and a con) and you'll DEFINITELY develop your interpersonal skills in a hurry!...Usually pretty good hours, especially if you have kids.
Hospitals--politics (ick!!), almost no autonomy, very little control over hours.
Clinics--You'll meet some strange ones BUT that can be entertaining too!, weird hours.
Office--the pay really sucks, it can be as little as half what you would make in a hospital setting....but I agree it was my favorite too!
