Yes, your ambulatory care experience will be invaluable. I worked 5 years in-patient (Peds), and then 17 years Primary Care (Peds, Family Practice, and Internal Med). I currently case management elderly and some younger adults, although we will soon be managing all age groups.
The field is still evolving, so you will probably be seeing a lot of changes in the coming years.
I recently accepted a new job as a Care Coordinator for primary care practices. I won't start for another month or so, so I have time to gain a little more knowledge. I don't know a whole lot about patient-centered medical home, but I would love to know more. Is anyone currently doing this? If so, what do you think of it? What do you do on a daily basis as Care Coordinator?
Absolutely. I rarely get out "on time" these days. In fact, this was the week from hell. But I still love my job.
Absolutely! I've only been doing it for 7 months now, and it is a lot of work. But work isn't "work" when you love what you do.
Many times companies will post that they want experience, but that doesn't mean that they ONLY hire those with experience. Ignore the experience requirement and apply anyway. What do you have to lose?
It's called "entitlement attitude", and it's becoming more and more pervasive.
That's what I was looking for. Thanks!
Through my job, I may be doing some work in West Virginia via telephone (I'm a RN Case Manager).
Does WV have a reciprocal aggreement with PA, or would I have to take the exam?
