I am currently working as an RN and looking to switch into consulting. I’ve been at the bedside for less than a year, but I’ve done a lot of internships at some big medical centers and involvement both in and after undergrad. Does anyone know of some firms that I may have a better shot of landing at? Worried I won’t be able to make the switch because I haven’t spent 5+ years doing direct patient care.

There are many firms that focus on the healthcare industry such as Huron, Navigant, Guidehouse, Claro, and Aarete.

You could also work in health benefits consulting such as Aon, Willis Watson, and Mercer.

Guidehouse and Navigant are one and the same. I agree we value clinical experience. A year or two more might be better, but it does sound like you have a solid background!

If you can, I would definitely try to get a couple more years of patient care/hospital experience. Even if u left the bedside within the hospital. Try supply chain, something performance improvement, labor, clinical review. That will put you in a better spot.

IMO, consulting firms aren’t hiring nurses at “entry level” - you have to come with some sort of technical / industry experience. But that’s just my opinion.

like

No problem! I’ve been doing healthcare consulting for 12 years and the majority of the nurses I have worked with all got into consulting after 10+ years of hospital experience. Doesn’t mean that is the rule though. I would look for non patient care roles in a hospital then make that leap to consulting.

With your limited YOE in clinical, companies probably will make sure you have great problem solving skills like any other entry level consultants. The nursing Subject Matter Experts I work with all have extensive nursing background (meaning it’s ok for them to lack in analytical/problem solving skills)

That was definitely something I was going to try to emphasize. I have a second round interview with UHG coming up so I’ll make sure to double down on my problem solving skills. Thank you!
