I am an LPN and currently work as an Administrator of an Assisted Living Facility. I make GREAT money, but understand because I do not hold a degree or RN, I might be stuck in this position. I am currently enrolled in Colorado Technical University Online AS Medical Billing and Coding, which will roll into my BSBA in Healthcare Management program next year.
I chose Medical Billing and Coding, because I felt like it would be a great opportunity for me to possibly work from home and have another stream of income. I'm really into wealth building and believe that one must have several avenues of income to reach financial security.
I want to know are there any LPN/RN's who have home based billing or coding business? I want to get your feedback? Are you contracting or working independently? How many hours a week? And any other information you will supply.
I plan to pursue my RN through Pratt College, however, I had to put on hold this year, after hearing the boards decision on distance learning. I was unsure if Pratt would be exceptable.
