Retiring Nurses See Healthcare Advocacy as Second Career - Healthcare Liaison Workshop June 7-8 Shows Them How to Make Transition
Date:5/12/2008

BERKELEY, Calif., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Marie Shouldice, RN, sees herself as a "healthcare human GPS device" guiding patients through healthcare maze. For 28 years it's been her passion, and when she retires it will become her profession working as a private health advocate accredited by Berkeley, CA-based Healthcare Liaison.

"For many years I have witnessed the confusion, frustration, and angst that people encounter in the process of navigating the health care system," says Shouldice, who is a case manager/patient care coordinator for a large HMO. "I like to think of myself as a sort of Healthcare Human GPS device. I can take people on the most direct route to meeting their healthcare needs. When I retire from nursing, having a new career working as a healthcare advocate is the most logical extension of what I am doing now."

According to Healthcare Liaison CEO Joanna Smith, Marie is part of a large cohort of nurses in the US who are aging into retirement and looking for a second career using their experience and skills to help patients navigate today's complex healthcare system. "Nurses advocate for their patients everyday," says Smith. "As accredited private healthcare advocates, they can continue to work with patients -- but in a much less stressful environment."

Private healthcare advocates assist clients deal with numerous healthcare related issues, including assessing treatment options; identifying and arranging appropriate resources; and intervening with insurers to help resolve payment or coverage issues.
