i hate my job as a nurse and would like to learn coding.
Do I just call down to the Medical records Dept and see if I can do an internship??  What about a good online school?
Someone told me to check out Penn Foster.
What about classes direct from AHIMA?
Help! What do I do and how do I start?

Before you give up on your career, find out if you could get hired once you complete your training.. what are the chances to have a coder job in your area? do you need any experience for to get the job? which are the certifications and training accepted by most of local employers?  

Good luck

I just finished the Career Step coding course.  IT was tough but good.  I passed the CPC exam on the first try.  If you have any questions, let me know.  I will be looking for a job in the spring.  yogagirl
