The Benefits of a New Clinical Job

The Benefits of a New Clinical Job

Are you a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant who is thinking about starting a new job search but need a little nudge to get you going? If so, consider the benefits of starting a new job and how they can positively impact how you feel about your career.

A Chance for a Fresh Start

    A new job can give you a chance to push the reset button on your career and start afresh. Whether you are changing specialties or moving to a new employer, starting a new job can energize you and ignite a renewed passion for your work.

New Colleagues

Every job comes with a new set of colleagues and possible mentors that can change your work dynamic. This can be especially beneficial if you are currently in a toxic work environment and need to shake things up a bit. It also has the added benefit of increasing your opportunities for collegial consultations that can enhance your knowledge base and practice techniques.

Professional Variety

If you dread heading to the clinic or your current job has become a hum-drum monotony, you should consider mixing it up and trying something new. A job change can expose you to another type of patient population, procedural repertoire, or clinical setting that can renew your love of practicing medicine.

Increased Income and Benefits

The old saying "you don't know what you have til' it's gone" can often be the case when it comes to you and your employer. Sometimes top-notch, long term employees are taken for granted and not appreciated the way they should be with reciprocal benefit and income adjustments. Starting a new job can boost your potential income and benefits to a level that is reflective of the top-quality services you provide. You can also take advantage of signing bonuses or incentives that many employers offer to new Providers or those willing to accept hard-to-fill positions.

New Learning Opportunities

Whether it be new procedures to learn or a variety of CME opportunities, a new job can give you the chance to expand your knowledge base.

The Power To Negotiate

When you are an in-demand commodity you're in the driver's seat to negotiate an employment contract that can be most beneficial. Take advantage of this opportunity to assertively ask for what you deserve regarding benefits and salary.
