I have been informed that my position is being eliminated. I have been with the company for ten years, and during this time, I have established professional relationships with a number of patients. This is heartbreaking, because providers develop relationships with patients. The best person to treat a patient; is the person who knows the patient. Our patients and families are well aware of the quality of care we provide them with. I must find ways to market myself, but also ensure that I do not violate any contract clauses. Oftentimes, a non-compete agreement is written into many employment contracts. This prevents providers from leaving a position and luring patients with the provider
As Advanced Nurse Practitioners we are in the medical field; not attorneys in the law field, therefore, the first thing I would do is to speak to an attorney to determine the extent of my non-compete clause. My position is being eliminated by my employer. They have the right to do this. I also have the right to discover fully what my options are.
