I have been a nurse for 7years in various areas of Pediatrics. My most recent specialty change was to the CICU. I have been there for 1 year after completing the nursing fellowship last spring. I am already starting to feel burned out with 12 hour shifts and the additional requirements. Oh forgot to mention I just gave birth to my 3rd child last august. I have tried many areas of pediatrics(which I love) but nothing seems to be my calling and I miss the time taken away from my family. Is there a position particulary in pediatric cardiology that I could do from home? How would I go about finding out what I need to do to become certified in CM or possibly get a master's in case managment? What are good websites to obtain more info. about the various roles of a CM? Thanks for your help.
the insurer i work for has a program specific to congenital heart disease. it's a blend of interaction with the patient (well, parents) and utilization review. there is the option of working from home.
feel free to pm me for details. i don't really like to advertise where i work...
previous poster was dead on re: ccm cert. you need the cm job first, then the certificate. regarding a master's in cm...i did some (very basic) research. didn't really seem to suit my needs, seemed to emphasize cm in rural populations. that seems to be a "newer" degree, it will be interesting to see how it progresses...
