Physician's Office

  1. How is it working in a physician's private practice compared to working on the floor in a hospital? Do RN's work in physician's office without ever working in a hospital setting except during clinicals? Wouldn't a doctor's office be much less stressful than a hospital floor? Thanks for your help!

    Are you a new RN/LPN or a student nurse? I highly recommend working as a floor nurse for about 2-3 yrs, preferably in a med/surg unit. You'll build a strong foundation, learn organizational skills, & hopefully, experience what team nursing is all about. Working in a physician's office has less stress & you're working along side the physician as his right hand...no autonomy. Hospital work has its advantages & disadvantages, but it does bring the best experiences that will benefit you in the long run. Good luck in whatever you decide.
