I personally love it, I ended up doing this by accident. I wanted to go into nursing, but that fell through. As coders we are just as responsible for our education as an RN is. For those that enjoy it and say "Bring it On!" these are the type of people who do well in this field. There are coders out there who hate the educational pieces and they typically make in the lower ranges of salary.
I don't want to come off in a bad way but I'm kind of tired of the few people who get on here and complain all the time about what a waste of time, money etc. this field is.
I know it's frustrating in this economy, and the tests are hard/difficult they are suppose to be, we have to prove to a physician, that we know enough to make them money and keep them compliant. I don't know too many MD's that trust easily when it comes to protecting them (my experiance, maybe not yours), and the better educated you are the more they will trust you with their compliance. Our physicians and practioners are the ones who could suffer the most if we are not knowledgeable.
