Absolutely! There are numerous opportunities-

1. Consulting roles in care management- I know KPMG has a practice where LPNs and RNs work with provider clients to redesign their patient care management processes. I think Deloitte has one too

2. Provider or IDS also recruit heavily for people with her profile that can run large transformation programs. She knows the delivery / patient care process and the business side so can be a PM for an EHR system implementation or manage the provider network accreditation and certification process, etc.

OP, it really depends on how she sells herself, and which firm. I’d think so.

I can refer her to Optum. We have a wide variety of folks here from all backgrounds including a mix of nursing/MBA folks. DM me.

Do u think she can get between $110k - $125k for her talent profile?

Why is she an LPN? She has an MBA - why not spend 2 more years and become an RN or even become a PA or NP. She can easily double her salary.

She has been removed from patient care as it was mentally and physically difficult (mostly in hospice settings) and enjoys health informatics, and analysis of clinical data.

I mean not to put LPN's down but LPN is a six-month course.
You don't have to do patient care just because you are an RN or an NP. She can still do healthcare consulting and make a lot more money.

I thought this seemed pretty reasonable based on my experience (senior level). But I just heard of another editor charging $1500-$2000 a day. Is this a sustainable? Am I vastly under-charging? Or are they full of it? 🤯
