  5. Rheumatology Nurse

    I was a float nurse in a clinic group and spent almost a year in rheumatology. It depends if you have an infusion clinic that you will be working as part of. My day was split mostly between rooming patients (height/weight/vitals/chief complaint/med r...
  6. Pregant nurse giving methotrexate?

  14. Career advice for aspiring Clinic RN / Primary Care NP

    I would try working as an RN in a clinic before going for your NP. A lot of people think they will like it, and end up not finding it's a great fit. I thought I might wanted to do primary care as an NP myself, until I worked in primary ca...
