RNs don't quit your current position
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 11, 2016
As an RN you will work with two case managers, who each share half of your case load. As the nurse you complete a far more extensive assessment and have a greater level of responsibility, the CM's do not seem to recognize that you have twice the case load as they do. The job is demanding, the paperwork is prolific and you will be pulled in multiple directions to complete visits, CMs often scheduling you to be at multiple reviews, with little time to actually travel there. Forget about having lunch! You'll need to come up with a way to teleport yourself, just to make the visits. Plan on spending your evenings, holidays, weekends completing the volumes of documentation, RADs , long term care functional screens, assessments, case notes and authorizations that you cannot possibly accomplish during working hours. The organization provides you a tablet to assist you in working at all times. RNs advised not to quit their hospital positions to work for this organization. The pay is much better in the hospital and you are actually finished working when you click out for the day.
Overworked and undervalued as an RN
