Hi all! Looking for some info. I'm considering CLNC - have read a lot of the posts, and I understand it will be a lot of hard work if I choose to go this direction. Marketing/networking looks like an uphill road, since I have just recently relocated to this area. On the plus side, I've been an RN for 29 years, 28 of which have been in a wide assortment of critical care roles (ICU/CCU/Burn/Trauma/Hyperbaric/Cath Lab/Radiology...).
Here are my main questions/concerns:
- Is the job rewarding? Not financially, per se, but personally. Is it fun, are you glad you are doing this for a living?
- What do you like most about being a LNC? What do you dislike?
- I have already figured out this is no get rich quick scheme. Few things in life are. I also do not want to disucss individual fees, and recognize each market, each LNC practice is unique. But is it feasible to earn, say, $40K (after expenses) or better per year, assuming some modicum of success, stick-to-it-iveness and time?
My goals are modest - I want to enjoy what I do for work, have time to enjoy my life, and make a reasonable income. If these goals can be achieved as a CLNC, super! It all looks so interesting and appealing to me as a profession - just want to what I'm in for if I choose to pursue this.
OH - one last thing, which training have you completed/prefer?
Thanks for your input!!! You guys rock!
