    NP Schedule

    Thank you for the feedback. I’m aware no place is perfect. I have talked to my manager about a few of these issues, like the issues with my MA. Some of this other stuff that’s occurring is because my manager is trying to appease the other 2 NPs because she doesn’t want them to leave. I say that because when I first started there the other NPs were so concerned with my schedule, how many patients I had etc. they state the Dr. I replaced was seeing about 4 patients a day and they were taking the brunt of the work. In a quest to fill my schedule up, my manager told them to give me some of there patients. Of course they gave me the non compliant patients or they ones they wanted to get off there hands. I would see a person once during walk-in clinic and then I would be listed as the usual caregiver. Which also meant I was getting refill requests and everything else I didn’t see the patient for.

    NP Schedule

    I’m new to this board and not sure if this is the right place to write this. I am a NP with a little over 1 Year experience. I work at a busy rural health care clinic. I am really considering leaving and maybe working as an NP part time. Reason: 1. I feel like all the non compliant, uncontrolled patients are transferred to me from the other NPs and even my manager. Most of these patients have been coming there for years and have never been controlled. 2. Many of the patients I’m seeing have multiple comorbidities, including HIV, Leukemia etc. I replaced the one Dr. who left. I have the least experience of the NPs I work with. 3. One of the NPs is out on maternity leave and I am seeing all her patients. (My manager discussed none of this with me) 4. For the first 7 months I’ve worked there I was doing double work because my MA is lazy and acts like he doesn’t know what to do or help. I later found out the NP he was working with left because of reasons like this. 5. I commute 1 hour each way daily Do you guys think I’m overreacting? Is this the norm?
