Clearly the parlor comment was tongue in cheek. I certainly don't have to do any of those skills it just can take up to 30 minutes to an hour to facilitate those tasks.... which yes we do IV's and straight caths on occasion in primary care.
I think there is just a lot of defensiveness seething from your posts. It sounds like you have a lot of great experience in your profession and I am certainly not judging you as a provider. I just commented that it's not really possible for you to make a blanket statement that previous RN experience is not relevant.
I don't think being an FNP is not exciting. I seen random things all the time....and I love procedures. What I do think is different ........is there isn't a lot of work place drama or stress.....and I personally love that . I am not sure about the posts about staying hours to chart. I have a 95 % fill rate and I am done with my charting every night. I almost always leave within 20 to 30 minutes of my official end time (at the latest). I am a very fast typer and do a fair amount in pre-charting (which were allowed to do) and during appointment. For my fellow colleagues that aren't as efficient , they don't stay late either....they just save it for the next day and do it when they have a no-show or lunch.
I think if you went into this role wanting to be a nurse practitioner.....1 year is to early to throw in the towel. Find another job in this role that is a better fit. However, I am always confused when people who got an FNP think they were going to work in a hospital. My program was very clear from the start that this was not the appropriate degree for that goal.
I don't I would ever feel comfortable participating in that type or relationship. even with work related stuff.....I would only share stuff I would be comfortable mgt knowing. interesting concept though.....
On a more general discussion I have pondered for years that I could probably benefit from counseling regarding a high stress long term issue in my life..... can't bring myself to set it up. Too busy and too aware of how much goes into the medical chart....don't really want my business out there for every future nurse, provider, MA to snoop in when I go to the dr in the future. It's not even a 'secret' issue I'm pretty open about it.....I just like to be in control of what is shared and when it is shared.
But what is learned and experienced as a bed side nurse is very often not applicable at all in a clinic or office setting.
