    How about coding? Did anyone go into coding after they got tired of bedside nursing or discovered that it wasn’t for them? If you did, I would love to hear about it because it is a route I am considering.

    Thank you in advance for the responses 🙂

      At my current position I do the ICD-10 coding for cases but I would not know what type of coding a LNC would use. Sorry.
