I worked in a Dr's office for 2 years as a fresh LPN grad. I worked for a few different docs. At this facility, each doc has a primary nurse. However, I've heard of some offices where nurses and docs kinda switch around a bit. I started out in pediatrics working for one of the busiest and meanest docs in the building. she saw about 40pts per day so it was constant go-go-go getting them in and out just to keep my head above water. I'd do vitals, vaccinations, EKG's, audio/visual screens, ear flushes, get urine samples, strep and flu swabs, etc. When the pediatrician was off, I'd work with a neurologist who had very few appts scheduled in a day because her appts were longer. All I'd do when working with her was BP, pulse, verify meds and allergies, and the occasional IV. A year later I transferred to Family Practice because I couldn't stand the pediatrician anymore and it was a little better. I had a great relationship with the doc and my duties were similar to those in the pediatric office but with the addition of screening phone calls for the doc, filling out prescription refill requests, and completing insurance prior authorizations.
I have to say, there was literally zero triage at the facility. They'd see anyone with insurance for any reason just for the $$$- this turned into chaos sometimes because we'd get overbooked plus get walk-ins with chest pain or other ailments that should have prompted an ER visit and not a docs office visit. All the docs charted electronically, by the way.
I think that a lot of other offices (from what I've noticed) are run more efficiently than the particular place I worked in (better triage and less overbooking). You may take a bit of a paycut going from LTC to the office, but it's definitely a quality-of-life-improvement if you like the "business hours" schedule. I've never worked LTC so I couldn't tell you whether or not it's easier, but I have the feeling it may be. No call bells, no chasing down CNAs, calling Doc's with lab values at 2am that no one bothered to address during the day, no being mandated to stay an extra 8 hours because someone called out, no admissions/discharges, etc.
Sorry this reply turned into a novel! Good luck on your office-job hunt and feel free to PM me
