    Whew !!! what a load off my mind.
    The CCM exam is OVER!! I have mixed feelings. I took it with 2 coworkers and we were feeling kind off good after the AM session -- but then the PM session kicked our butts! There was nothing on Medicaid , almost nothing on Medicare - what a waste of time studying that stuff - now just 8-10 weeks until I know if I passed.

    Well just be encouraged! That is the way I felt, the morning part was a breeze and I felt I got out of there too quickly and the evening was like,"Is this the same test." But evidently it was ok, because I did past the first time. It was 4 of us and 2 passed and 2 did not. So I don't know. But relax and don't think about it for the next 8 weeks, what is done is done and hope for the best.

    My friend wants to sit for the CCM exam, but is afraid that a disciplinary action on her license will cause her application to be denied. Does anyone know how this would affect her application approval?? Please help with this because she is worried sick about it. thanks, all.

    First of all your friend needs to go directly to the state board to see what is on her license. That way she would be prepared and not blindsided. Then go to the CCMC website and read carefully what their qualifications are for sitting for the exam. I would hate to say yes you can or no you cannot, that is a decision only the administrative staff at the CCMC can answer.

    Thanks for your information. She is a great nurse and I hope that an error she made as a new nurse won't keep her from getting her CCM.
    I will pass your reply along to her.

    there were quite of lot of cultural based questions and alot of psychosocial. There was hardly anything on Medicare/Medicaid ( which I studied a heck of a lot of).
