I have a friend who works for Cigna and she has been trying to get me to come work with her for a while. I've dismissed the thought because I've always heard that insurance review doesn't pay as well as bedside nursing (I'm currently working with an agency making hourly in the high 40s). However, I'm about at my absolute wits end with nursing as a whole. I'm fed up with being a slave to people who are disrespectful, demanding, and belligerent on a days basis. No amount of money can make that okay for me.
Does anyone have experience with this type of job field as an RN and what would be an appropriate pay range?
I am also curious. I interviewed with Anthem and the pay they offered was really low compared to my current job. Hoping to hear other companies are better.
I am a Registered Nurse Case Manager at an insurance company and yes the pay is somewhat lower but you do get a bonus and my company is employee owned so we also stock share as part of our pay. The you add the holiday, vacation and sick time that you can accrue I make just about as much as I was at bedside in med surg. With that said the amount of less pay far makes up for the work environment.
