I have a RN Friend who always forwards me emails from head hunters looking for nurses who want to work in Utilization management etc from all over the country. Would you like me to forward some of those to you. She works in quality management - something I would like to do after working 23 years in the hospital but I am not an RN.
If so, send me your email address. I don't have priviledges to look up email addresses on this site either.

At any rate- I did like working for them, and I got a bit more respect from the MDs there than many of my colleagues who deserved more than what they got. I only left, because I couldn't work 40 hours while in grad school any more, and they don't do part time.
Oh- and Humana pays way more. Lots of the turnover was due to people leaving SHPS for Humana, because the pay was much better for the same job descriptions.
Hey. I was going to send you a direct message but for some reason it said I didn't have the right to do so but anyway.... I was wondering any advice you can give me on Humana. I currently live in Ohio. I believe the closest Humana office is in Lexington from my house. Do you know how long the training is? Also do you have to work in the office for a certain amount of time before you are able to work at home? How are employee benefits? Are you able to work when you want or do you have a certain time you have to make calls while at home? Any other information you can give me would be great! Thanks!!

- 0Nov 21, '11 by DeanaJamesI Have worked at SHPS. You may definitely want to consider Humana instead. SHPS is a dead-end job where you are working basically with your hands tied behind your back blindfolded. You simply do what their inferior software tells you to do. No nursing skills needed or used. Morale is the lowest of any place I have ever worked. Consider Humana. Simply Google SHPS Carewise and you can read about others' comments and feelings as well - don't take my word for it.
