Hello good nurses. I will cut straight to the point. I am at UR department at hospital and I like getting hospital paid. I think there are so many entities that are ready to pounce on hospitals and say "Gotcha!" And smack them on the head with a hammer (think CMS, insurance, hcap scores, etc) and no entities that advocate for these hospitals, so I dont mind siding up with these guys.
Main thing is, I want to go the direction where hospitals value you the most: where the money is, and the one who brings it in (i.e hospitals love revenue generating providers like interventional cardiologist). What masters do you recommend then? MSN, MBA, MHA, what service or department should I be looking into? Quality, risk, revenue cycle, infection control, patient safety, etc. Thank you!
