Finding a new job
I am a registered nurse looking to leave the clinical nursing field. I am now interested in insurance claims, workmen's compensations, etc. but am finidng it very difficult to even find any of these jobs in my area (central New Jersey). I have searched the internet, newspapers, nursing magazines, newsletters, etc. I also registered at a large employment agency and was told by the RN recruiter that most of these firms usually want some experience. I want to get my foot in the door somewhere to gain some experience. What do you suggest.
Blueeyed, I understand what you mean, about trying to get your feet in the door. In my state, I've seen ads for nurses to do workman's comps physical exams and insurance physicals. I'm not sure what the pay is, but they do require a lot of driving, and paperwork, deadlines. Sounds interesting though and might give you some experience in that area. Good luck in your search!
