Sorry, I agree, I posted vaguely.
After re-reading my post, I think that I was intending to say that I felt my responsibilities would not be less but of a different area of responsibility. They made the statement that they thought my responsibilities would be less as I was out of the hospital. I argued that the responsibilities would be the same or more depending on what things are developed, (ie wellness programs, education, teaching classes) I wasn't negotiating on the area of responsibilities but more on the challenges and the hard work I am going to face.
I also failed to mention that this a large company and I am the first Registered Nurse that they have in the country. They currently have a CNA in the role and also had an LPN working with the work comp aspect of things.
