Clinic jobs

Posted

Hi. May I inquire if there's a US company that has a permanent RN opportunity in outpatient clinic (non-govt) with basic qualifications especially for Texas? And any entry level clinic, case mgt or coordinator (or any non-bedside) opportunities? Please share info. Thanks

Not really sure what you mean by "permanent RN oppty" but have you googled RN positions for your specific location in Texas?

There are many such positions. Since Texas is a very large state, you are going to need to narrow your search to the area you are wanting to be in. As said above, Google for more information for a specific area.

I've been searching profoundly but there are only few out there. I'm really looking for opportunities "beyond bedside nursing" and that's willing to open doors for an interested person like me. Thanks.

Thank you. I did those important steps. However, I have the minimum qualifications but unfortunately, a person has to live by the "unfair criteria of HR and Executive world which is like looking at your resume with sarcasm and criticism because you didn't have this long time in work, no current work, no specialty, time gaps, so on and so forth" I'm also pouring out for other people out there caught in the same situation like me. This kind of culture is killing the opportunities for people needing to have another chance, a quality life and to survive. How could other people judge you outright by your resume, and they didn't know your real life's journey, challenges or struggles which resulted your resume to be like that. That's just really an unfair way of looking at one angle or a portion of the totality of the person, blowing it up and equating it to a negative image and status. This in turn creates a suffering psychologically and emotionally, not to mention financially because "they" made it hard and impossible to get into the job you need because of your "non-conforming resume." Thank Heaven, these people struggling are still able to hang on in their lives and live with clean records, which is the most important thing. Just like our old folks said: "We are living in a wild world and can be unfair." Also, I want to remind about the great teaching: "Do not judge the book by it's cover." I really suggest that policymakers need to revamp the system, not driven by eccentricism but by humanitarian so that it will work not only for the majority but for all. After all, we are all here on earth for our own family, our own selves and supposed to be for others, therefore let's apply it not just words.

If you are allowed to submit a cover letter, you could use that to explain the gaps in your resume.

I honestly can't fault hr for wanting to choose someone with more experience for a position of they applied for the same posting as you did. I don't think it's unfair; their job is to find the best person for the posting and that often equates to having more experience.

i am curious why you don't want bedside positions. I imagine you would have better luck finding one of those positions as there are more of them.

The criteria by which an applicant is judged (nursing experience, current employment [or lack thereof], specialty experience, along with time gaps in resume) are very legitimate standards by which to evaluate an applicant for a job. It's not "unfair," it's realistic.

Employers are not necessarily interested in "the totality of a person." They are looking for a nurse to do a job. All of those criteria that you listed as unfair are the markers by which you prove your employability.

OP, how long have you been out of practice, and how many years of experience do you have? Have you looked into a refresher course of some kind? The non-bedside opportunities often require substantial and current experience to be able to step into those roles successfully. Those doing the hiring are going to select applicants who are qualified, as is their prerogative. It's nothing personal against you, but there may be things you can do to make yourself a stronger candidate.

That got weird quick.

Employers generally want to see that prospective employees are in it for the long haul. Orientating new people is pretty expensive.

Best of luck to you.
