Hello Cape CodMermaid,
I have my certification. my provider is approved by the CCMS and my certicication is good for 5 years.
I agree with the above poster. It reads like you are not certified. The certification in Nurse Case Management that is required by many employers of experienced Nurse CMs is not like gaining an ACLS certification. In other words, you cannot take a class from a "provider", then take an exam at the end to become certified. Therefore, did you take a class or sit for an exam? If you sat for an actual Nurse CM certification exam, which one was it?
Many years ago I worked as a Case Manager and was not a Nurse. At that time I took many classes and received certificates in various areas of Case Management pertaining to my patient population. I was not once considered certified
by my employers or anyone else. Certificates of completion
in Case Management are not the same as being certified
Nurse Case Manager.
A little advice: Your best bet is to find an entry-level Nurse CM position through your current employer. If one does not exist, talk to the Director of the Department and let him/her know that you wish to become a Case Manager. He/she may be willing to hire and train you. GL!
