Hi. I posted something similar in another forum. I'm an experienced acute care RN with 12+ years experience in various depts. who is burned out on bedside nursing. I am curious about what RN auditors do. How tedious is it? Is it interesting? I am nervous about leaving "the bedside," but also very ready for a big change. What kinds of questions would you ask at an interview about such a position? Is the pay similar or much less than floor nursing? Thank you.
I worked in Labor and delivery for 10 years. Firm believer in teamwork. Unfortunately, I hurt my back many years ago during a delivery. I recovered in a couple days, and back to work I went. Several years later I worked in 'Quality Improvement' and then 'Risk Management'.
Three years later, I was so traumatized by what I learned and witnessed, I had to leave the profession. Am on disability due to health issues and I am 43. I miss Labor so much, but am so afraid to run to the emergency, like I used to. HELP. Or warning.MD peer review was all for show--the last two hospitals I worked.
