I'd like some input about a case management job that's open. Its at a small hospital in my hometown. Its a combination of case management and utilization review. I've got about five years experience as a nurse. One year critical care, two in psych/ med. Clinic at the psych hospital, and a year and a half of long term care. Is case management something I would qualify to be able to do, or be able to pick up with a little training? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

i'm not a director, but i will respond. yes, you can pick up case management and utilization review given your clinical background. however, do not expect to be proficient right away.... to become a good and effective ur and/or case management nurse you need to develop skills and to gain knowledge that are aquired over time just as is the case with any specialty. gl!
