I have been an RN for 13 years. I am completing my MSN (Nursing Ed) next month. Most of my experience is in adult critical care, with the last several years being in ICU float pool in a large hospital system. I have also taught clinical PT for a couple of years.
I am starting to apply and interview for positions away from the bedside. It is beyond time! I went into my MSN Program not really knowing what I wanted to do. I do enjoy teaching, but I don't know if this is the right time in my life to make a FT career out of it.
I see many ads for case management nurses, both in the hospital and for insurance companies. How can I make myself a good candidate for these jobs without experience in case management? Is there a particular area that is better to start in (hospital vs. insurance company)? Is it better to start in utilization review?
