Hello all,

I was offered a position as a LNC and looking for some help/opinions. I have been an ICU RN for over 6 years now and am currently enrolled in an online MSN-FNP program. So this position sounds like a great fit with the flexibility it offers.

Its a work from home LNC position, flexible hours, if I choose 30hrs/wk I would receive benefits as well. They had said that this is a 'pharm vigilant project', that is projected to last 1 year(any insight if this is good?). They way they worded it is that once this project is over they move people from within onto the next project. I have never done anything close to this in the past so wondering is this position as good as it sounds?

Being in online school I'm used to having to set my own schedule & be motivated with assignments. With everything going on right now being at home & not at the hospital wouldn't be the worst thing.

Thank you!

Hi! I'm considering doing LNC in the near future. I have been an RN for a year in August and specializing in endoscopy. I don't know if I am the most qualified person to answer your question but I think this sounds like a really good position to take. As long as you can handle 30 plus hours weekly of LNC work, FNP school and (are you working at the ICU?) your regular full time job, I think it would be really cool to try. If you are not working in the ICU and just doing this part time, then I say go for it!!

Since I am considering doing the online certificate for LCN, can I ask you questions and advice? How did you get the position that you were offered? How does it work and what would you do? Is it paid and how much? I was thinking of emailing some medical malpractice attorneys and asking if they were open to having me part time from home. Is that reasonable? I am also planning on doing my MSN Admin next year (Spring of 2021) Lets say I get my LNC and still want to work full time in Endo and also go to school...do you think that would be reasonable or too much?  

Thanks for listening and hopefully responding! -Brittney
