I am looking to leave bedside nursing due to recent medical issues, and am interested in coding. Are there any RN coders out there who could give me some info on how to get started, where to study, which certification is best, etc?
How much do you make where you live? (I live in the SF bay area). I know it would be a huge pay cut, but given my circumstances it's necessary.
Is it possible to self-study and then take the exam? This would be ideal for me.
What type of job environment do you work? (Hospital, insurance, etc.)
Which is better, CPC, CCS, or CCS-P.. I'm confused! Are there more coding positions in hospitals or physician practices? I'm not sure which certification to get.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
