Case Management Positions

  1. I am returning to nursing after raising my children.
    I am interested in Case Management.
    Do you think it is possible to re-enter in this specialty?

    I am an ER CM and at least in our hospital - clinical experience is important. However, it isn't the only deciding factor. How recent is your last hospital employment? Good luck...

    I have been out of nursing a very long time...the whole time my children were growing up.
    I spoke with someone in the profession today that suggested that maybe with a good orientation program, I would be able to handle it.

    You can do case management outside of a clinical setting so that it only requires you to have maintained the knowledge and not the technical skills. These employers are only going to care about the knowledge base you possess and not when the last time you cared for a patient was.
    Try looking for case management positions that say "Telephonic" or "Field." These are usually offered by insurance or managed care companies.

    I hope this helps
