Primary Care Registered Nurse (RN) Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Primary Care Registered Nurse (RN)?

Primary Care Registered Nurse (RN) in London:
"Primary care in a CHC."
Pros: The long term relationship you build with clients is what draws me to primary care--the trust you build is what gives you a platform to collaborate on health goals and really journey with clients for the long haul.
Cons: Hegemony is still very real; there are many opportunities for change in practice and advocacy for nurses to be practicing to full scope as the highly trained professionals that we are--rather than glorified clerks.
