I recently interviewed for two case management positions and got two job offers. I have no experience in Case Management but I am an experienced clinical and charge RN.
One offer was with my current organization and they hired me for a part time position- 2 days a week. I will work on the floor for 2 days and hopefully if a full time position opens up..I can transition to full time. The full time nurses tell me that training is for 4-5 weeks and then they handle case loads on thier own. This was the first job offer I got and they needed me to start training immediately.... No weekends but I have to work 2 holidays
Training is a little bit confusing because I am only there two days a week, and I just started three weeks ago.....and the length of my training has been fuzzy....
I just received the 2nd offer at another hospital. This will be full time and the training will be about 12 weeks. Both hospitals have similar hrs and benefits. I really like the 2nd facility because of its reputation and the extensive training I will receive but I am torn about leaving a facility that I am familair with ..I am also concerned about the time for the training....No holidays but I have to work one saturday every 6 months.
For Hospital Case Managers out there...how long was your training when you first started? What facility should I go with? Pls help!! Thank you
