I have been a nurse for 2 years and I have been working in a skilled nursing unit for the whole time as an LPN. I'm trying to get into a clinic or a DR. Office for the better hours because I'm a single Dad. I have applied for several clinics posting LPN positions with no luck. Out of curiosity are clinics/DR. Offices opposed to hiring men who are nurses?

I wouldn't think so. You may unfortunately be hitting a wall because so many MD offices use MA's as cheap labor instead so they may only have one position open for an actual nurse and it may also happen to be that so far other nurses with more experience have beat you out. I'm told as a hospital nurse that the clinic jobs are coveted and harder to get into in general because of this.

I used to manage an Primary Care Office. Didn't do it very long. Informatics job came across my lap and I snatched it up. Been working at home for 2.5 years now...
I would like to possibly work in a clinic or primary care setting in the future. I haven't seen many jobs post though since most use MA's now.
