Question about INtake Nurse?? HELP!!need advice

  1. [FONT="Comic Sans MS"] Hello, I am a new grad who has been offered a job as a Intake Nurse for a HH agency.. The pay is good and so are the benefits.. I was just wondering if someone could shed some light on exactly what an INTAKE NURSE would do or what is a typical day like as a INTAKE NURSE/COORDINATOR. And also do you miss having patient contact? Also for the RNs who are out in the field .. What do you expect out of your INtake nurse? Thanks in advance for the replies!!

    intake nurse, would be responsible for completing the referral, obtaining insurance auth if needed...i know when i was in the field the more info on the intake the better it was, esp the MD fax #, hopefully being a new grad you would have enough orientation to learn some insurance of luck
