Pros: i loved the purpose of the clinic itself, being able to asist with procedures, and learn while in nursing school. they staff were from all walks of life and got along really well.
Cons: no opportunity for advancement once i passed the nclex. no set hours, no benefits
DTC is a small clinic within the hospital. A typical day varied for me cause some days I would have to open the clinic, which required me to do all the duties that are necessary for the clinic to function including checking inventory, setting up for procedures, faxing orders to hospital registration etc. The rest of the day I would prep patients for – more... procedures, assist doctors in performing those procedures and recovering those patients. Other days I would wash and sterilize endoscopy scopes all day. The job was good for me because I was in Nursing school at the time so I learned alot and recieve alot of exposure other than clinicals to nursing practice. Because I was non benefited I was flexed from work often and my work schedule was inconsistent. All this was done by management in effort to save money. I enjoyed the fast paced out patient services the clinic provided. – less
