Hey everyone, I was just curious if many of you are required to do administrative duties in your practice. I am a new NP, accepted my first position. In my contract it does state I am to do "some" administrative duties and goes on to state approximately 1-2 hours a week. Which I felt was reasonable. He had me think it was more just working on updating EMR templates. However, I've been here for 6 months now and I'm in charge of submitting payroll, staffing, hiring, firing, reviews. I do all our EMR templates and was the one to gather the info to send to Medicare for MIPS this month. I am keeping up with our certifications for the office (x-Ray, FWA, HIPAA training). We do not have an office manager and I do feel like he is dumping this on me. I have told him I'm not familiar with a lot of this work, and I was not planning on the job being like this...but nothing has changed. I do also still see patients on top of this.
I don't think it's newbie nervousness, I'm really comfortable with the patients, and I enjoy being a NP. However, it's been 5-6 months. Should I stick it out for a year (9/2018) or you think it's too early to jump ship since I'm new to the profession?
