    The fate of camp this Summer

    I'm really, really hoping that camp can safely be conducted this Summer. I need it, my kids will REALLY need it. But a lot of the staff is from overseas, so I'm just not sure how that will play out.
  2. Hi, I'm a school nurse in the northeast. We are closed for at least 2 weeks, but I anticipate it will be much longer than that. I really do hope that we get to a point where it is safe to reopen, but my gut is saying that we might be done for this school year. What are your thoughts?

    The MS Integraged healthcare management looks really interesting. It looks like a lot of the same type course that would be in a MHA degree....wonder why they just didn't offer the MHA. Thanks for your help!

    Thank you!! I don't love math, definitely not a math nerd (wish I was!) - but I'm decent at it :) I thought about the MSML - but I kind of feel like its a bit of an odd degree and if I'm going to get a business degree it might as well be an MBA...does that make sense? I'm avoiding the MSN for a few reasons. I wish they had a MHA or MPH degree, I'd be all over that! Can I ask what area of nursing you are practicing in? Also, how long did it take you to complete the program?

    I am thinking of going back to school....the MBA- HA at WGU has me interested. I would like to get an advanced degree more as a personal goal than as a career advancement initiative, although who knows what the future will hold!! My concern is, I don't have business experience. I have over 10 years of nursing experience which includes hospital, school, hospice/homecare and telephone triage. If anyone has done this program, do you think I even have a chance of being accepted? And if I were, is my nonexistent business background going to make the classes impossible? Any insight would be much appreciated.

    Telephonic worker's comp

    Hi everyone, I've been a nurse for over 10 years and have recently been called for an interview for a Telephonic Workers Comp Case Manager for an insurance company. It's mostly wfh - one day a week in the office. Does anyone have a similar position? While I do like the idea of working from home, it's not necessarily needed, I could be in an office somewhere and be just as happy. From what I hear, many wfh case managers are micromanaged down to the keystroke, tied to their desk all day. Also, I'm having trouble finding a whole lot of info on how a WC CM job is structured, caseloads, daily job duties, etc. If anyone works Workers Comp from home, could you provide any insight? Do you like your job? What is you average day like? I'm finding a lot of info about UM/disease management jobs but not much on workers comp. Thanks very much!
