CDI Nuance Competency Exam
I need to take a proctored, 2 hour NUANCE CDI Clinical Comptencey Exam. Does anyone have any experience with this exam? If so, can you fill me in please. Thank You!!
I had taken this exam approximately 6 years ago-from what I remember, it's looking more at your clinical knowledge for recognition of diagnoses (i.e. respiratory acidosis, what normal ICP would be vs. what elevation would indicate). You're not expected to know so much of the coding aspect of things-that comes after hire with another exam, I believe either within 90 days or 4-6 months?
Correct as above and as best I recall?
Step 1. Pass a clinical screening exam
As I recall, some months later, there is a second, more comprehensive exam regarding coding and data quality aspects of the job.
