Hi all, Thanks in advance for listening to my rambles. I recently started a FNP position in a ENT private practice (6 weeks to be correct) and honestly thought it wouldve been the best thing. The interview process was smooth, where the doctor and the office manager painted such a beautiful portrait of how wonderful it would be to join the practice. They even took me out to dinner and threw a welcoming party for me. I guess, I shouldve known by the initial treatment that working there would be a hellhole. 6weeks into it, I want to quit. I want to leave and never come back. I signed a contract and thought I read it thoroughly but I guess I was wrong, I have to give them a 90 day notice for resignation. I cant imagine staying there x 3months more but I suppose it would be better than 1 year. This doctor is mean, obnoxious and rude. He is nice to his cosmetic patients (obv because thats where the money comes in) but has no patiences for the ENT group. When I ask him for help with a patient, he didnt' want to go in and told me to take care of it. I dont understand how this can be a learning environment. I also am not ACLS certified ( i plan to be) and he has me pushing versed and fentanyl and watching monitors. I know that if God forbid something were to happen to a patient, I would be the first one to be thrown under a bus and blamed for not being certified. Another instance is when we had a new pediatric patient. I understand that I am FAMILY NP so I am able to see all ages but he basically said that (I) " would take care of it" How can I take care of it when Im still new? Maybe I just expect for him to be more understanding that I am new and to walk me through it instead of letting me fumble in front of the families. Another example of what happened was last week I had a patient that his partner saw and the patient needed a hearing test and to be scoped. After doing all that, the patient wanted to see a doctor. I proceeded to tell him and he said to me "I am not seeing that patient, they came here for a test and it was completed, tell them to make an appointment to see my partner". WTH! He's a diva and also slams doors when he's upset. There is another doctor there that is amazing, he is down to earth, patient and willing to teach me. Unfortunately, he is not enough to have me stay. There has been 6 girls that have left the practice too ( they are ancillary staff but still). I know that the girls that work in that office hate it so they are on their way out too. The two doctors approach the patients differently and has allowed me to care for patients differently. However, whenever the jerk sees me doing something, he always tells me to do it the right way. The problem is, that's the way the other doctor showed me and I'm comfortable with it. (the nice doctor tells me to do things the comfortable way)I never thought this job would be a bed of roses but I also didnt think it would make me cringe when I have to go in and work with him. I guess I just want to know if I am nuts or if this has happened before to someone else. I dont want to screw their practice by breaking the contract but at the same time, it is the beginning of my career and I dont want this is leave a bad taste in my mouth, more than what it is.
