What is it like day to day to be a LPN in a doctors office?

  1. Hey everyone, I'm looking for my first LPN nursing job and would really like to know what it's like to work in a doctor's office? I'm kind of apprehensive about working in one due to me not really getting the experiences that I want as a nurse like working in a nursing home. And how different is the pay as well compared to LTC? Thanks

    Same stuff day in and day out. Bring patients to rooms, basic vital signs, shots, some medicine adminstration but not much, simple labs possibly, phone triage... if you want to increase your skills as a nurse I wouldn't recommend t. On the other hand if it's the only job offer you have then snatch it up! You may end up loving it! I personally loved the commradarie( is that spelled right?) that you build up with the doctors. You have to do what's right for you! You can't beat the hours! That's for sure!
