I'm moving to AU soon to be with my husband. Background - I am an LVN (equivalent to Enrolled Nurse) Case Manager for a healthcare insurance company. I work directly with Dr.'s, hospitals, patient's and assist in things like care plans, discharge planning, processing discharge orders, setting up home health, transfers, outpatient procedures, nursing home placement, you name it..I do it.
All my work is office-based..documenting, telephonic. I know AU has a different healthcare system. I am just at a loss as I have been searching for similar job posts and I cannot find any. It's even harder because 1) Don't see many opportunities for Enrolled nurses and 2) I'm making almost six figures a year and I fear I may have to take a giant paycut, especially since I'm not an RN and I also have not done any direct patient care since nursing school (7 yrs ago)!
Can someone point me to the right direction as to what jobs I should be looking for - perhaps it's a different job title I should be searching for? Or am I just wasting my time if there is no such thing as case management? Is there anything else I might qualify for?
Thank you in advance
