I’m thinking about leaving the clinical side of healthcare within the next year. Insurance dictating treatment is causing too much mental strain. Plus companies focused on the bottom line and not patient care

I completely understand how you feel. When I went into medicine it wasn't for this.

I switched over to consulting and have been much more content with the flexibility and the ability to choose my own schedule

What type of consulting are you doing?

I totally agree with you, that’s why I left the bedside myself.
I always wondered why I couldn’t keep up with my caseload until I became a patient myself at the same hospital I had worked for. I’d have 4 couplets, meaning 8 patients!
I had a hysterectomy and was put on the mom/baby unit that I used to work on. The RN came in maybe once during her shift and the only physical assessment she did on me was to put her stethoscope on my right clavicle. 🙀 My BP was 60/30 and she said, it’ll go back up and never came back. The second I told her I was an RN, I got excellent care. That upsets me more than anything. Everyone should have access to quality healthcare!
So I went back to school, got an MPH in Epidemiology, worked for the CDC, CMS and DoD, all doing healthcare data analysis. I’ve been working from home almost a decade now and I feel like I’m saving lives by the thousands/millions.
I took a rather weird path, but I use that RN every single day.
Look into healthcare data scientists. It’s a highly sought after skill. You don’t necessarily have to go back to school, you could just study online and take lots of certificates.
If you’re worried about the math or learning how to code, lemme tell you, if I can do it, anyone can.
Currently I’m working for an organ transplant organization. We have tons of RNs that do things different than bedside care.
That RN is your golden ticket to opportunity, you just have to think outside of the box.

History repeats from time to time but still greed seems to conquer everyone. We should always stick to fundamentals.

Hedge fund money comes from many of our pension and retirement account so if hedge funds loose it is ultimately the common man that suffers.
