I've been an RN for 8 years (peds for 7), on a telemetry unit and am interested in switching positions. I have not found very much information on this type of position, and will be visiting HR to find out more. I appreciate any comments, thoughts, etc, that anyone can give me. Thanks to all!!!
I've posted the job description from our website below:

I just saw this, sorry no one posted sooner. This looks like a position where you would need some backround in Risk Management. Is it with an insurance company?
This post might be better suited for a different forum.
