Maybe.... However, what you have written sounds very similar to a community health nurse and public health nurses who I worked with in the past. Both have a case load of patients in the same sense that a Home Health Nurse has a case load, but they were not Case Managers that provide Discharge Planning services and Utilization Management and Review for insurance companies or health care facilities.
Thus, your best bet in advocating for a job title change would be to jot down your duties and responsibilities that are real (job descritpions can leave a lot out) and compare it to the definition of Nurse Case Management listed under the eligibility requirements to to sit for the Certification exam provided by the Commission for Case Management Certification's website: http://ccmcertification.org/sites/de...Cert Guide.pdf
. I hope that helps.
