wow...Melissa, sorry to hear about that! I was fortunate with my first coding job, my boss actually told me she didn't expect me to know the "ins & outs" of the facility for at minimum a year! maybe longer! I wasn't even certified (still in school) at that time! I had a year after being hired to be certified. She was very patient and my fellow coders were awesome help.
I'd hate to see you "can" your coding education so quickly - none of us know "everything" ...even with years of experience!! BUT, being an RN is great also! and your coding knowledge will help you there as well! I know several nurses that have also picked up their coding credentials, apparently the two go well together! (me, I could never be a nurse, I hate needles!)
hang in there - not all employers are so quick to judge...prove them wrong, it's their loss.
