- Dec 2, '11 by christdied4us310Do you think that Aetna would hire a nurse without previous CM experience? I am so excited to start applying but nervous at the same time because of my lack of experience.
Does Aetna also train you in office first then let you work from home?

- Dec 14, '11 by exnavygirl-RNI'm very interested in working case management. There doesn't seem to be a lot of openings in Mississippi. I've checked a couple of insurance company websites and applied to one. Will wait and see.
- Dec 14, '11 by Nurse4life09Try 3rd party companies (contract with health insurance companies and large corporations) That's how I landed my job with no prior CM experience, just home health. PM me for more specifics.
- Jan 6, '12 by MomRN0913CM jobs are very difficult to come by in the hospital. It's what i really, really wanted to do. I did interview in the hospital for a position in CM. They never had intentions of hiring me without experience, they interviewed me as a favor to my uncle......
They did give me good tips though. Take a CM course at a local college. Also, getting a position as a CM with an insurance company is the best route to go and they do hire without CM experience. I am in the middle of the interview process with a a large insurance company (chose not to say until all is done) and they said the job IS stressful and busy, but on a whole different level and you will not be bored it's very interesting and forever changing. This position is for Worker's comp claims.
I interviewed with HBCBS myself. The worst interview ever. I was interviwed by 2 non-clinical people. No clue about nursing. They only asked me an hour of internet generated general interview questions that were just plain stupid in my opinion. A few to understand how I would handle certain situations, sure..... I get that. But nothing about my skills and knowledge as a nurse. So poo to them.
This is an office based telephonic nursing position, but I hear there are plenty from home.
- May 15, '12 by clahoney7I know this thread is old, but, I started in an ins company doing UR and moved to CM. I am now looking to move on from that as I have been doing this for 6 years and I am one that likes constant challenge and learning new things. Not to say CM is not challenging but you can get good at it and not have that same edge of excitement to it.
Insurance companies do hire w/o CM experience as I know plenty who have been hired to CM in the two companies I have worked for over the past 6yrs.
- May 23, '12 by Superme0101Hey,clahoney..I find it interesting for you to move away from CM--im thinking the same way---but dont know where to go..any ideas?
- Jun 15, '12 by aka1908nurseI currently work as a telephonic nurse case manager. I work for an insurance company. From what I've seen and encountered telephonic CM are typically employed by the insurance company and onsite CM are employed by the hospitals.
- Jun 19, '12 by MArdt1I do not believe hospitals will hire for this, but I know you can do telephonic with companies like Wellcare. I know the one in Tampa, FL is hiring. You might want to check out their website if you are in that area. Best Wishes!
