Online LPN Programs

Why Online Schools are Hot for LPNs

It is rare that a career field and a style of education work so well together. Online LPN programs do just that. Taking a course online does many things that can make the time in school more manageable and in a way rewarding. We will cover some of those benefits for practical nurses and why LPN online courses work so well for them.

Save Money!

Due to the lower overhead for the schools, they charge less! Also you don’t have to drive to class or eat out during lunch.

Save Time!

Not having to spend hours in a classroom and driving back and forth add up fast!

Spend More Time with Family

If you have family or children, online education is where it is at! You can watch your kids and study when it works. Take breaks when you want to! Like when they are asleep!

Work 9-5!

Online schools allow you to work during the day and study at night! Great for single people, single parents and parents!!

Focused Work

Online classes usually work at a faster pace with a narrower focus that really makes the experience fly by. You will cover whole units in weeks.

All these reasons combined with the two part education needs for LPNs That is the clinical and classroom parts. Taking the clinical online is not an option but you can fast track your license by taking online programs where you can. Good Luck from the scrubs team!!

CNA Classes Online Showing Extreme Growth!

CNA Classes Online

 

We at Forever Scrubs have always known that online courses are a great way to get an education at your own speed and in the comfort of your own home. But some fields within healthcare are better suited for an online education than others. And CNA classes online are one of the fields that thrive in that setting.

BLS.gov recently released there new stats and we are going through them for giving you the low down. Nursing assistants are showing tremendous growth at 21% through 2022. Along with that growth there will be upwards of 321,000 jobs created for CNAs.  And of those 300+k many will get there education in online cna classes.

In the next decade many employers will be using more nursing assistants than ever, along with home care aides and LPN/LVNs. The shift is with finding cheaper employees that can be versatile enough to handle multiple tasks. A good nursing assistant is vital in a healthcare setting. Also they want to hire employees quickly and on their terms and CNAs allow them to do that.

That is really not unlike any other business. RNs and even LPN/LVNs are larger commitments in their eyes. So just as many businesses in other industries are doing similar things in their fields, this is no different. But it seems to work in the favor of the CNA. And we love that!

All these factors point to a great decade of growth for all you nursing assistants out there. And specifically to those who are considering a CNA career. It is the #1 first step in to the healthcare field for many and if you like to help people than it could be for you!!

Nursing School in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Nursing School Options

Healthcare has taken-off at a record rate and, by signing up for nursing school in Pennsylvania, you have the opportunity to start a career as a nurse.

Regardless of whether they’re online or on campus, before you know it your training classes will have you sitting down to take your license exam required to become a Nurse.

Can You Satisfy the Requirements for Nursing School?

Nursing classes have four key requirements for students. The foremost is to meet the minimum age requirements and have a high school diploma or GED, the third is to test negative for any drugs, and finally is to be cleared by a background check.

Exactly What is involved in Your Nurse Program?

If it is time for you to select which nursing school you’re going to attend, there are several points that you could consider looking into. Once you start looking, you’ll find dozens of programs, but what exactly must you pay attention to when deciding on nursing classes? First of all, figure out if the program is authorized or accredited by the Pennsylvania State Board or maybe a significant governing agency such as the American Nurses Association. If the program is approved by these organizations, you need to additionally check out various other variables including:

  • Has there already been any complaints about the program?
  • What exactly is the program’s student rate of success for the license test
  • School study groups publicized on discussion boards

The Reason Nursing Licensure is Really Crucial

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing says that earning a nursing license is essential for a nurse. Also, the Nurse Aide Registry regulates a national registry that a working nurse should be shown on to lawfully be employed as an aide. Becoming credentialed and listed is the only way you can be hired to work as a nurse.

Types of Nurses

What do Nurses do?

While specific job descriptions for different types of nurses may vary, nursing as a whole can be defined as a field of healthcare focused on the promotion of overall health and prevention of illness in both individuals and communities.  Depending on the area of nursing that an individual works in, these goals may be achieved through a variety of means.

What Do Nurses Do?

Broadly stated, nurses work alongside physicians in everything from the assessment of patient conditions to the planning and implementation of treatment programs. Once again, the exact activities that any nurse engages in while working toward these objectives depends on the type of nurse in question, as well as the type of facility where he or she is employed.

Nurses find employment in a tremendously diverse range of settings, including: clinics, hospitals, private practices, private industry, schools, research facilities and assisted-living communities. While the majority of nurses do work for employers involved in direct patient care, an increasing number of nursing professionals are also finding employment in less-traditional, business-oriented settings.

How to Become a Nurse

The requirements to become a nurse depend upon the type of nursing position the person is interested in, but always involve the completion of a formal training program. The amount of time required to complete these programs runs the gamut from six-weeks (as is the case in some CNA certification courses) to four years or more.

Prerequisites for admission to training programs also vary considerably by program type. For entry-level nursing positions like CNAs and LPNs, prerequisites usually consist of just a high school diploma. For registered nurses and nurse practitioners, completion of previous coursework and, in some cases, previous work experience may also be required.

Nursing Salaries

As is the case with all other aspects of nursing, the average nurse salary varies considerably according to the type of nurse, amount of experience, type of employer, etc. To illustrate just how wide the range of possible nursing salaries really is, consider that the profession’s lowest-level position, the CNA, typically earns somewhere around $24,000 per year according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Contrast this with nursing’s higher-end professionals, Nurse Practitioners, who generally earn over $90,000 annually (www.salary.com), and you get an idea of the vast range in pay.

Outlook for Nursing Jobs

The nursing field as a whole is one of the fast-growing sectors in the U.S. job market. With a projected growth of 20% through 2020 (www.bls.gov), nurses of all levels can expect to find plentiful opportunities for employment throughout the country as the healthcare industry continues to expand to meet the needs of a population that is at the same time growing and becoming older.

In your training you will need to complete at least 120 clinical hours of practice and of that 120, 90 hours must be in some type of externship program.

Medical Billing and Coding Job Description

Medical billing and coding specialists are allied health professionals who deal with the process of recording patient diagnoses and medical services rendered with a universal, alpha-numeric coding system. While medical billing and coding is the name applied to this process as a whole, the medical biller and coder perform different functions within its framework.

What Do Medical Coders Do?

Medical coders, formally referred to as Certified Coding Specialists (CCS), work in hospitals, clinics, private physician offices or even at home, where they are responsible for converting all notes and documentation on services provided and patient conditions into a universal system of codes (see below) so that the medical billing specialist can correctly invoice patients and insurance companies. A typical day for a Certified Coding Specialist will include the following activities:

  • Reviewing medical documentation for accuracy and completeness
  • Updating and maintaining facility databases
  • Converting physician’s notes on patient illness and condition into the ICD-9 code system
  • Translating any procedures performed, prescriptions made, etc. into the ICD-9 and CPT systems
  • Converting any services not covered in the other systems into HCPCS Level II

What Do Medical Billers Do?

Once the medical coder has completed his or her work, the medical billing specialist initiates the task of converting the assigned codes into the proper nomenclature required by insurance companies for filing claims or by patients for securing payment. The biller then becomes responsible for managing the claims until they have been paid. Medical billers spend the majority of their time involved in such tasks as:

  • Assessing new patients’ current insurance coverage or other means of payment
  • Working with patients to establish payment plans when necessary
  • Transcribing codes provided by the CCS into any specific format required by insurance providers
  • Tracking and updating patient account records
  • Following-up on past-due accounts and initiating collection activities as required

How to Become a Medical Biller or Coder

Regardless of whether a person is interested in working in billing or coding, it is usually necessary to earn a professional certificate through an accredited program. Medical billing and coding certification schools are frequently offered online, in addition to on-campus, and can usually be completed in nine-to-12 months. Students will be expected to learn the three aforementioned coding systems (ICD-9, CPT and HCPCS Level II) and will also be required to familiarize themselves with the new ICD-10 system.

Medical Billing and Coding Salary

With a median salary of over $32,000 per year (www.bls.gov), billers and coders are among the highest-paid members of the healthcare industry who are not required to hold four-year college degrees.
