I'm seeking all of your help once again--I started working as a new nurse almost exactly a year ago (last feb 2015). I started at a very busy trauma center hospital in Newark, NJ-a very good hospital. However, due to many factors-- being a new grad, not having the strongest personality (maybe?), being a Float RN, not enough experience, not able to learn when being yelled at constantly I realized that position was not suited for me despite working the hardest I've ever worked to succeed in a position. I then took a position as an RN in a pretty busy Doctor's office. I do a little bit of everything but not too much clinical work at all. I helped implement the EMR in the office. I take orders from the doctor, help in the office with paperwrk, insurance prior authorizations, prescriptions, and again lots of documenting on the EMR and just general stuff with the EMR (when it crashes, if the doctor panics and needs help with it, which happens a lot). I have to say I like it. I don't mind not being in the clinical world, I miss it sometimes but after having the experience I had (unfortunately) I am a bit "traumatized". I want to pursue something where I can use the skills I am good at to achieve a higher level of skills. I was thinking Nursing informatics. My fear at this point is that no one will hire me for such a position because of my minimal clinical experience. What should I do? Should I try to get a certificate for informatics? Does this enable someone to be qualified for a specific informatics role? Or should I go and get more clinical experience even though I'm not keen on it at this point? Any words of wisdom or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
