    Pros

    Great learning environment for New Grad NP helps with learning time management and utilizing technology. Very autonomous environment. The clinic is your own. You work alone, no staff to be waiting on, no managers looking down at you. The pharmacy staff is very supportive, your colleagues are just a phone call or email away. Clinical guidelines are spelled out for you and available as a resource. I would like to mention technology again, this is tomorrow's healthcare and MinuteClinic is top notch for the scope of practice.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. Bonus structure is not consistent or guaranteed. Time off is hard to come by. Benefits are terrible and almost a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Improve 401k plan
    Improve bonus structure. Reward the clinicians who meet RVU goals with a compensation worth the efforts.
    The pay needs to be better, and a 1%-2% raise on already below market value pay is insulting.
    The PTO earning to include vacation and sick days should be increased.
    Bottom line the overall compensation package does not support the effort the clinicians put into their quality care and the lack of compensation results in high turnover rates. The clinic concept is awesome and a much needed service for the community. Invest in your clinicians they will love the job more and company retention will improve.

    Pros

    Autonomy , 3-4 days per week, low complexity

    Cons

    Long hours, lots of administrative responsibilities, busy clinics - could be rather stressful

    Advice to Management

    1 hour before clinic close should be scheduled for admin. Work , not patients.

    I have been working at Minute Clinic as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure to basic skills and acute disease management. Excellent setting for a student to master management of common illnesses such as flu, URIs, UTIs, minor wounds, acne, and many more! The clinical guidelines set by CVS make it easy for a student to gain experience in utilizing current guidelines in making appropriate treatment plans.

    Cons

    No experience with management of chronic disease, 150 hour maximum of clinical experience, can be awkward at first because you are always in the room with the patient so it can be uncomfortable to discuss with your preceptor if you are unsure of the diagnosis because the patient is listening.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Minute Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, great benefits, decent pay

    Cons

    No autonomy. All diagnosis are computer generated as are treatment options. You cannot deviate from the algorithm without receiving chastising emails from corporate. It is Burger King for medicine; if you do not give the patient what they want, you will get a bad review.

    Pros

    1 hour lunch
    Colleagues
    5 word minimum, so using characters, but NO OTHER pros

    Cons

    Worse JOB in my entire nursing career! managers are puppets, all about profit for the company! Ridiculous NP turnover! NP are lowest on totem pole, just want a warm body to see patients. Allowed 18 minutes start to finish to see patients. Required to see & charge every patient even if you know you cant help them (unethical). Revolving door, inappropriate antibiotic dispensing hole in the wall. Too many addititional task to complete in addition to seeing patients!

    Advice to Management

    Should be ashamed of yourselves!

    Pros

    Great Pay. Great bridge to get into the field especially if you want the knowledge of owning your own clinic.

    Cons

    Meticulous chart reviews that undermine your degree. No real say so on schedule when short staffed. Insurance plans aren't too great .

    I worked at Minute Clinic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. 1 hour lunch break
    2. flexible schedule, 3-4 day work week
    3. EPIC emr which is the best system out there

    Cons

    1. working holidays
    2. working weekends
    3. working alone
    4. terrible management structure- managers are stretched super thin and over worked.
    5. Not a lot of clinical support
    6. Working in hostile conditions
    7. NPs have to do everything from seeing patients to mopping the floor, over worked
    8. Bad IT support
    9. Hold my place in line is a nightmare
    10. High turn over
    9. Patients aren't respectful.
    10. People don't follow the instructions how to sign into kiosk
    11. NPs spend more time doing admit duties and trouble shooting than seeing patients

    Advice to Management

    Treat nurse practitioners better and give them better support. They need a secretary or tech for help at high volume clinics. They should also be able to block out times to do admit duties. Don't let patients have the ability to sign in last minute. Patients pick the wrong option on purpose so that can still sign in. Don't have managers oversee people in different states. Ridiculous

    Pros

    Pay is decent

    There are no other pros

    The program is trying to make me write 20 words but there are no other pros!!!! None.

    Cons

    Have to do things that have nothing to do with being an NP (lots of admin duties)

    Constant oversight, limited scope of practice and chart reviews do not allow you to practice to the full extent of your education. I do not feel like I should have to explain to upper management "why" I gave someone an antibiotic.

    Patients are rude and demanding and do not respect you as a medical professional

    You work alone and can get bombarded with multiple patients at once and they are rude and impatient because they have to wait

    Have to do DOT physicals and almost none of the patients have their forms filled out prior to coming and the exams are extremely time consuming

    The company needs to provide the NP with HELP! There should be a person checking in the patients and a tech to help!!! It's unreasonable to expect the NP to do everything for the visit from start to finish!

    Health insurance plan is terrible with very high deductibles and high monthly premiums

    Advice to Management

    STOP treating the NP's like this. See above under CONS. There is a very high turnover at minute clinic for all the reasons above!!
