    Hired as a PNP, forced to work as an RN

    Well, I don't have a contract!! I just have a noncompete... I looked up the values before my meeting and tried to rebut using them, but they rebutted my right back, they're trained professionals. I was warned about how my meeting was going to be, and it went EXACTLY as it has gone for other: providers, UCs, MAs, RTs... they have excuses for their self serving nature down. I have been sending my resume to every pediatrician whether they have an open position or not.. There's a few positions that were actually looking for a PNP, one was 1hr 20 mins away from 16 shifts a month with no call (but I may be able to talk them in to a couple less shifts if I do nights because day shift is 10 hrs long and night shift is 14 hrs long (we'll see), one is 30 mins away and 13 shifts a month... we'll see if any of those pan out. I don't even know what kind of salary to expect, because this place pays NOTHING... but, then again, I was talking to a fellow NP I worked with a few years back and she actually made a few thousand less than me, so I guess I shouldn't complain. The main hospital hires at a VERY decent rate for the area, so I guess I'm just used to their $$$.

    I did it a couple of times and then refused to do it anymore.

    Well Dizzy thanks for asking instead of assuming you know anything about the situation. RN: triage, assessment, meds, documentation, discharge education is all fine and dandy. But the RN is also a supervisor position. I am credentialed and have privileges and have been working as an NP here since Jan. Then covid happened. I did telemedicine from April to June due to low census in the UC. This is my 1st job. Nowhere in my contract does it say that I am expected to work as an RN We don't even use the same EMR template. There were checks in the procedure room they do daily that weren't done because I didn't know they did them and noone told me about them. Some lady came with meds yesterday. Do I log them somewhere or just stick them in the cabinet? Why does it say we have 50 face shields in the inventory but they're nowhere to be found. Do they have a different spot for them that I don't know about? Oh....and I'm not supposed to chart the phone calls I make to give parents results in the phone call tab? Oh I didn't know because no one told me. I was a neonatal/pediatric CCT RN for the last 6 years.... being and RN doesn't automatically make you able to do any RN job anywhere. Oh and when it gets busy they'd also like me to be logged into 2 computers. One as an RN and one as an NP so I can triage, assess, examine, treat and discharge as an RN on one computer and an NP on the other computer. I've emptied the trash as and NP... I've discharged, I've cleaned rooms, I've medicated its not the work being "beneath" me. It's the fact that when the RN that puts her 2 weeks in asks to be per diem they say no... because they have good ol me to fall back on. I was not hired to do this and am the only NP here and the only provider that is being asked to do this.

    Totally brought that up at my meeting today.... somehow the conversation just kept circling back to me not having the establishment's values.... the clinic comes first 🙄

    Agreed. I had some meetings today. There's no end in sight. I've been sending out my CV like crazy. We'll see how it goes. There's slim pickings for PNP slots@Central Florida

    So I was hired as a PNP at a pediatric urgent care. Then COVID happened. I have never been trained to work as an RN at an Urgent Care clinic... but they are forcing me to work as an RN. Are they allowed to do that? I have spoken up about not being OK with this... all that has bought me is a meeting with the director about meeting their standards of behavior. When I talked to my manager, the response was "at this time we need RNs more than we need providers." Let it also be known that 2 new doctors were hired in December. They start this month meanwhile our doctors and myself are not getting our hours as providers. What do you think?
