I love my job. I do make more than i did as an RN. More importantly i have normal hours and I am treated as a professional. I wouldn't want to go back to floor nursing ......ever.
I see about 13-16 patients a day in primary care.. i close my charts at the end of the day without a lot of issue. I usually have down time. hands down my job as a NP is less stressful than when I was an RN on a telemetry floor. I used to work on the a busy med surg floor with 5 patients on days.... this role demanded that I learn to be efficient and flexible....and honestly by the end of my role there most days were pretty stress free too. It's all about efficiency.
That is a nope..... they are only offering you 20 hours a week of work..... they don't get to say you don't work elsewhere. by saying they have to approve it they would be essentially freeze you out of other financial opportunities.
I have never started a new job that i don't have buyers regret 1-2 months in. That is kind of normal. I have always stayed and ended up liking the job in the end. At my current job, the other providers were great but it took me a few years to win over some of the clinical staff. I just did my job and tried to be friendly. Just like you are adjusting to a new job other workers are adjusting to how you change the culture. While I don't think I would stay at a place that is hostile long term.............i think one month into a new job AND a new profession is too soon to throw in the towel. Good luck!
HOw many patients would you be seeing a day. I can't imagine you would see enough patients to even make that worth your time.
