Where to go after CDS?
I barely have my feet wet as CDS nurse (inpatient) with only a 1 1/2 years of experience in this position. While I do really enjoy this job and the benefits, I'm not sure that I see myself doing this until I retire in 20 years. I think my biggest gripe is that I am often ignored by the physicians. We have a few physicians that refuse to answer clarifications and there is no accountability. I'm not sure that I can continue to chase down doctors (remotely via laptop) for the same things over and over. So I thought I would reach out to my fellow CDS out there, what are some roles that I might be able to transition to down the line with my CDS experience? I plan on staying in this role for a few more years because I do enjoy it and I am gaining tons of experience but I just don't think I can do this forever.
