    I'm enrolled in the BSN to MSN leadership and management. I want to advance into management so for me I don't think it is a waste of time. My job is also paying for almost all of it too so that is a big incentive. I was thinking about going to get my NP after this nonclinical masters degree but am not 100% sure yet. Honestly, I just want to make a significantly more amount of money.I have been in nursing since 1993 and desire more money. I feel I have topped out in pay. I don't really like hands on nursing and so management will be best for me I think. I like nursing and I see the value in being a good hands on nurse or bedside nurse but it just isn't my passion just too much politics.

    I graduated from IVYTech South Bend in 1993 with my ASN RN. It was a great program.

    I got into the MSN-leadership and management starting January 1. I was initially told I had to wait until April 2016 but I got lucky and got a spot sooner. Good luck with your studies. I look forward to this adventure and do hope I get a job I love and make lots more money when I'm finished.

    Just an FYI from an old time nurse: I've been nursing 20 + years and I don't make that. I get to work from home, have every weekend and holiday off and work day time hours. I guess if I wanted to empty bed pans, insert Foleys, hang IV bags, etc all day and the other hands on work- I don't want to do anymore- I could make lots more money. After 20 years+ as a nurse, however it isn't so much about money but more about quality of life and respect at least for me. Enjoy your money. I hope it is worth it for you, and I hope you save it because it gets to be hard work after 40 years old being such a physical type job that it is. Good luck. Peace.

    I passed the CCM last year. If I recall correctly, I have to get 60 CEU's before renewal at year 5?Where do you go to get your CEU's for recertification?

    I work for Amerigroup which is the Medicaid division of Anthem here in Nevada. I am a case manager. I work 100% from home. I think that the most helpful experience I bring to the job is my experiences in various settings over my 20+ years of nursing most of it out of the hospital. Don't expect the pay to be high but the benefits of working from home is worth a lot in my opinion and the people who work at Amerigroup are an amazing bunch of professionals and just good people. Yes, I miss making more money but not the bull**** that I had to endure on a daily basis for that paycheck. Just my $.02.

    I have been working as a case manager since 10/2014 for AMerigroup which is ANthem BLue Cross Blue Shield. I like my job a lot. But I have always wanted to work from home. Yes, it is about the numbers but there are so many other benefits. One of the downsides is the pay was a lot lower than I was use to but the trade off is I get to work from home. I like the company though and would recommend the case manager position.

    I got mine in about 6 weeks last year. No worries. It is coming. Where did you get a job?

    Are you working in a slaughterhouse? The workers in slaughterhouses have very high injury rates. I wouldn't do it. Slaughterhouses are ugly places for the animals and the human animals that work there. Get a job in home health, nursing home, doctor's office instead.
