  1. New grad first job as Clinic RN?

    I'm a clinic charge nurse. I second what others have said about hospital care not being the end all be all of nursing. I have some inpatient experience but the vast majority of my career has been in ambulatory. If the 8-5 hours are what you are ...
  2. Difference between Clinic nurse and Clinic RN

    It is interchangeable at my job. Clinic Nurse and Clinic RN are the same here (outpatient RN). The job posting should state minimum requirements including licensure. For our LPN/LVN opening it states LPN/LVN on the posting title. If it says just "nur...
  3. Spanish speaking patient phone calls

    You should be able to contact your translator service and have them translate the message for you. You can also use Google translate. We use this occasionally for generic patient e-mails. I wouldn't recommend it for any PHI but for the generic "Hey w...
  4. MA for a boss?

    I am a RN. I am the Charge Nurse in my clinic with 6 LVNs and 3 CMAs. However on paper our clinic manager (who is not a nurse) is the direct supervisor for all of us. Everyone "reports" to the Clinic Manager. I handle any in house clinical issues, da...
  5. How do I find a clinic/primary care job?

    There aren't many so you will have to really hunt for them. I am the only RN in my clinic and was 1 of 2 RNs at my previous clinic (the other RN had been there for 20 years). Keep in mind that because there aren't many jobs they tend to be competitiv...
  6. KatieMI, I am so sorry for what you have experienced. As others have said, please get a lawyer and contact any programs she has applied to. She knowingly and intentionally exposed you to something you have a life-threatening allergy to. This was not ...
  7. Another lost new grad

    If you don't have children or other obligations holding you in your current area, I see make the move. It is terrifying to move away from your parents and the support system that you grew up with, however it will also help you grow as a person in the...
  8. Leaving before 1 year? Don't know what to do..

    It depends on your long term career goals. Since you say you want to do ER or ICU in the future, I would recommend you stay or try to find another inpatient job. Though other inpatient units may require 1+ years of RN experience and/or BSN. However 1...
  9. LPN to RN woes

    I have been in your shoes. I took the scenic route to my BSN. Graduated with LVN in 2011, RN in 2017, and BSN earlier this year. My advice: Get it over with! I regret waiting so long to finish up. It is mentally exhausting and frustrating no matter i...
  10. Quit my CNA Job ???!

    I second the scribe in ER if you are able. It will help expose you to more of the provider side of healthcare and show you more of the duties you will be performing as a PA. Depending on the ER schedule, it may even allow you to continue to work some...
  11. Would you do that? New grad dilemma

    I would be vary cautious of working as a LVN with a RN license. I was a LVN for several years before I went back to school for my RN so I understand the draw for it. However, many Boards of Nursing frown on this from a liability stand point. You will...
  12. R.N. debating to pursue BSN

    You are still young and hopefully will have a long career ahead of you. the current trend is pushing for more BSNs (rather it is warranted or not). With that said, it may be mandatory for you in 10 years to get your BSN for your employer. I am 30 and...
  13. Nurse Managers: Showing initiative, or being creepy?

    As a manager I never used Linked In or any other social media/networking platform. Our recruiters would sometimes look up a person's social profiles as part of the vetting process but I personally never did. However, our recruiters vet the person and...
  14. Mon-Fri Rn Jobs no weekends or holidays

    I work in a Family Medicine clinic as a Wellness Nurse. Mon-Fri, no weekends or holidays. Occasionally I have to stay late if it has just been one of "those days." However the majority of the time I am home at a decent hour. Pros: Set schedule, no we...
  15. RN in Medical School -Should I keep this to myself?

    Personally it would not bother me one bit as a nurse. However, I would not flaunt it with your fellow med students. You don't want to put an unintended target on your back. Med school is tough enough without drama from other students. However as othe...
