Recently interviewed for a field-based RN case manager position handling worker's compensation claims in the NJ/NY metro area. Specifics are: Salary is mid 60's, home-based, would have to use my own laptop and fax machine, monthly cell phone allowance of $50 (to get a second line on existing cell phone), 5-10 visits/week, caseload of 25-40 depending on acuity. I would really like to pursue this position, interesting job and hiring manager was very nice, but am wondering if the above specifics are the norm. Thoughts anyone? Thanks!

- May 2, '12 by MBARNBSNSince no one has responded I will do my best. I have no idea what is normal for NY/NJ. However, I performed field case management at one point in my career for a few years. I think 5-10 visits a week is great and so is a caseload of 25-50 depending on acuity. 25 would be a good number for a truly high acuity caseload, but 20 would be better. 50 for a low acuity caseload is OK too, but 40 would be better. Plus, I think reimbursement for travel by any organization I have worked for has been a joke given wear-and-tear and gas prices. I never had to pay for a cell or a pager and I was not reembursed for the use of my own...
If you are interested in the job , give it a chance. If you have a current job, keep your foot-in-the-door of your current job and try this new one. This way if you do not find it to be a good fit, you can return to your current job. Good luck!
