    I haven't been a Case Manager for 10 years, but in California it used to be required to have a number of years experience as a R.N., before becoming a Case Manager (because you are working independently ,and are the team leader).

    thanks for replying!
    I am a new grad in nyc. this particular agency that i am interested in prides themselves on not only having a good training program but also having resources available to you becuase you are not in the feild but at a desk and therefore have many co-workers to draw from if need be.

    i will be starting as a case manager in november first! not much of clinical experience though, just home health for a few months. anyway, i will be receiving 20/hour from a home health company in itasca, illinois. prior to that, i went to an interview for another home health company but it's in lincolnwood, illinois and they were offering me 28/hour. i just chose the 20/hour due to its proximity to where i live.

    I am a new grad and I am having trouble finding a job, esp without any experience. I have found a few non-clinical positions (Case management, Nurse Reviewer) that will hire new grads. My question is, will starting my career in non-clinical positions hurt my career or slow it down since I will not be practicing my hands on/patient care skills?

    That depends where u want to go in your career as nurse. I sure wouldn't go apply for a clinical position now after being in case management for
    a few years now. But I personally don't want to, so that's fine as long as I can keep a job like this. There are always refresher courses, though when I looked for some I didn't find ANY in my area.
