New Clinic job


I just accepted a job in a clinic after working in the hospital my whole nursing life (11 yrs). I feel like a new grad. Is the transition easier going from hospital to clinic? I think I may be putting too much pressure on myself to be perfect and do you think there will be more of a need for more R.N.'s due to meaningful use?

Any input would be appreciated. :geek:

I made the transition from hospital to clinic and felt like it went fine. We use the same charting program so that helped. The challenge was learning the new policies and procedures. It took me a little time getting used to interacting with patients who are stable and relatively independent. Be patient with yourself during this transition.
