A great deal of the workers compensation RN position is to advocate for the patient. Even though "saving money" has been identified as a purpose of this position - it is much more a position of importance because you are meeting each claimant in their own environment, you are learning about who they are, what their work environment is like, how they relate to their "work", and how their current situation/injury has impacted their life. This position takes a great deal of skill because you are working for your employer but also your claimant, the physician(s), the rehab professionals, the adjusters, etc. Being in a position that requires such a holistic perspective demands you can be a great advocate and an expert communicator. I hope you are beginning to see this is not just a position that requires "secretarial" skills... As noted earlier, experience in this field provides more opportunity to gain wisdom and insight into the ways you can make a difference...and not merely a monetary difference. The meaning of work in a person's life is of monumental importance...keep this in mind.
