If you want a nursing job that directly impacts and improves the lives of underprivileged communities, consider managed care nursing. Managed care nurses often work with patients who rely either mostly or entirely on government-funded healthcare and assist them in finding access to the healthcare services they need.
Managed care nurses specialize in working with patients using social services, which often include the elderly and the poor, so they must be comfortable working with diverse populations. They focus especially on preventative care. This includes encouraging regular check-ups and vaccinations to help avoid medical issues or catch them early, thereby keeping medical costs down for the patient.
A big part of managed care nurse jobs includes analyzing patient’s healthcare needs and connecting them to cost-effective healthcare providers. A managed care nurse acts as a liaison between the patient, insurance company, and doctor. They advise the patient to make sure that he receives the healthcare he needs while avoiding paying for unnecessary services.
In order to qualify for managed care nurse jobs, you must be at least a registered nurse. Often, managed care nurses have continued their education to study social work. This helps to prepare them both clinically and mentally for this specialized field of nursing. To find managed care nursing positions in your area, visit ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs today.
