I'm looking around for a change of scenery and I saw an opening available in a speciality clinic associated with the medical center I work at as an ICU nurse.
The reason I'm on here asking for some insight from you all is that I've been a patient at this specific clinic for the past couple years and intend to keep going. I really believe my primary specialist there is a leader in his field and I want to benefit from his expertise as a patient. I've been seen by two physicians in this clinic and have interacted with nearly every other staff member during my appointments; everyone is wonderful. But, I could see how odd it would be for them all to see me as a patient for this long, and then have to see me as a co-worker. I feel that this major detail would wreck my chances of being hired there.
Do you think being a current patient seeking treatment would be some sort of a conflict of interest that could keep me from being hired?
My grandmother used to have a colorful expression "You don't **** where you eat".
In other words, leave your personal (and probably sometimes messy) life of the clinic AT the clinic, and find a job elsewhere.
This isn't a good combination.
