    How can I get a WAH job through an insurance company?

    This is exactly what I did when I started looking for a CM position at the end of December. I had three callbacks for interviews and was able to land a position with the last company I interviewed with. Good luck!

    Don't want to nag. Should I follow up?

    I did eventually call and speak with HR. She told me that I was placed on a waitlist because they were almost fully staffed. That was a BS statement because the job had been reposted twice after my interview. Seems like the DON said he wanted to hire me and then changed his mind to see if there was a better person for the job and besides, since when do they start waitlists for job openings? I wish HR would've just been straight up with me and told me that they were going to go in a different direction. No hard feelings on my end though because I reached out to the HR rep who contacted me regarding the care manager position and luckily she was understanding and rescheduled me for the interview. I was able to interview and actually got the position! They offered me $7k more than I asked for; it'll be the highest paid position I've ever held, and I'll be able to work from home after 3 months. I've also been trying to get into the case/care management world for over a year now so I'm extremely happy. I guess everything really does happen for a reason!

    Landed a Care Manager Position!

    I definitely will. I've been trying to get out of patient care for a couple years so I hope that I enjoy it as much as I think I will. Good luck to you!

    Landed a Care Manager Position!

    I'm so excited about this. I posted here a couple months ago about going through an (very long) interview process for a Care coordinator position only to be told I didn't get the job. That happened again a month later when I went though another long interview process (three interviews and a job shadow) for a Liberty Mutual case management position. I was extremely discouraged and decided to just start looking into patient care positions but I ran across a Care Manager posting for another major insurance company and just applied for the heck of it. Well I got a call a couple weeks later, interviewed, and found out I got the job today. I just wanted to share my excitement with al of you!

    Okay thanks. I was offered a position back in 2014 but wasn't sure if the way they do things had changed.

    Should I Follow Up?

    I had a correctional panel interview last week. The DON verbally told me that I would be moving forward in the hiring process. I have yet to hear anything from HR. I emailed HR earlier this week to follow up but they didn't respond. Should I call before the week ends? I turned down a job offer last week after the correctional interview because of what the DON said. I know that wasn't smart but I wasn't too thrilled about the job anyway. The dumb thing I DID do was cancel a care manager interview on Tuesday because of hopes that I'll be moving forward in the correctional process. If you can't tell I REALLY want the corrections position. I interviewed for corrections 4-5 years ago and received notification the same day that I'd be moving forward so that's why I'm unsure now even though that was a long time ago and I'm sure things have changed. This is also a local govt position so they'll let me know either way whether yay or nay. Just not sure if I should contact HR again since they didn't respond the first time.

    Any follow up on this if you started working for them? I recently interviewed and am waiting to hear back. How long does it take to hear from them?

    Common Correctional Nursing Interview Questions

    I had my interview recently and I dont believe they were the same as any questions mentioned here. 1) An inmate informs you that they fell, hit their head, and lost consciousness. What do you do? 2) A female inmate informs you that she has been having right quadrant abdominal pain. What is your assessment? 3) The DON informs you that you need to float your clinic LPN to another county jail but they refuse. What do you do? (This was a role play scenario) 4) An inmate hung himself and when you arrive you find that the CO has already cut him down. They report that he is breathing and has a pulse. What is your assessment? 5) You find out a staff member is diverting medication. They inform you that it is common practice when you confront them about it. What do you do? Those were the only nurse questions but others were asked about how to protect inmate privacy, how I prioritize, if I've ever had to confront a co-worker about something they did wrong and what was the outcome, why I'm interested in corrections, and why I want to leave current position.

    Help me be prepared for this question, please

    I guarantee they won't ask you that.

    County Jails- Please tell me your experience

    Thank you for responding. My county doesn't contract medical services out, so it is indeed a county job although I received a phone call yesterday to set up an interview at the prison which is through Corizon

    County Jails- Please tell me your experience

    Error.
  14. I see a lot of posts about prisons but not many on what it's like to work in the county jails. Can someone give me any insight? I have an interview next week. I had a previous interview with the county jail system in 2014 and was hired for the outpatient clinic but declined the offer d/t accepting another position. What would the outpatient clinic have been like? I worked for the county a couple years ago at the Health dept and want to get back to being a county employee for 1) the pension 2) stability 3) the ability to transfer within the county until retirement. Thanks! P.S. I've been an RN for 6 years and have done ortho, neuro, cardiac/telemetry, public health, and Home Health.

    How did things work out with Liberty Mutual? Did you get an offer? I, too am looking for a company that I can retire with and was contacted for an interview.
