I have been a RN for 15 years. I have had home health and PCU experience. The past 10 years I have worked as a nurse case manager and got my CCM 3 yrs ago. I am seriously considering a career in LNC but I have a few reservations and questions.
1) How do I know there is a demand of LNC in my area? I live in SC
2) Can you really make as much money working as a LNC as working full time somewhere else? I was told the cases only take a very short time, so even if "technically" you get between $100 and $150 per hr, you still don't make that much b/c it doesn't take very long per case.
3)How do I know it's for me? What kind of personality does it require?
4)Is the Vickie Milazzo program really worth all the money???
I have worked from home for the past 5 yrs, so I can work (and prefer to work) without someone hovering over me, making sure I am doing my job. I am very detail-oriented and self-motivated. I do not want to have to work all the time, in other words, I don't want to be married to my job or have it interfere with my family. I am willing to put in a good 40 hr week but not a 60-80 hr week!
Any suggestions/thoughts/comments would be most appreciated!
