I just accepted a new position as a utilization review nurse. It is in a small rural hospital. This is my first time at UR. However, I have had years of discharge planning experience from my first career as a social worker. I have now been an RN for about 8 years and have worked primarily on the floor in many different areas. I am looking forward to the new job b/c I really enjoyed CM and discharge planning. Not sure about the differences I will encouter doing it as an RN this time around. I was hoping to get some feedback on what to expect in the UR role including the pro's and con's - Thanks!!!!!
