I have been off the floor since 2000. I went into managed care and have done a variety of roles. I think my favorite was working as a Quality Specialist and HEDIS medical record specialist. I recently changed and am using all of my knowledge as a clinical auditor for a large hospital system. It is good to have a strong clinical background but the coding background really helps!!
There is a fairly new role for Clinical Documentation Specialist. I saw today an opening for Nurse Hospitalist.....
The pay not equate to floor nursing especially if you do OT or shift work.
I hope this helpful. Good luck!
