I have recently expected a new position in WC. I am an RN. Previously doing Disease Mang. CMRN nursing in a General Condition Management program, call center type nursing. I have no WC experience. I having problems grasping the WC verbiage when documenting my nurse analysis, and Treatment Plan Action that I will or should be doing. Understanding that my goal and purpose on case is to help get employee back to work ASAP. I know I need to be "Assertive" ,....but with no experience its hard for me to know how to approach all this.
I do not have a Preceptor, nor did not get to follow a CMRN. I am told just to ask my Team Lead, and to view other nurses docs/charting.
I am told that the Team I am on.... and VERY lucky to be only on 1 dedicated account, but its still hard for me having no WC experience. I left my previous job because I wanted a more challenging role in CM, well this is definitely it! But I am asking myself, "What Have I Done?" LOL
Any tips, recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
