It is relatively drama free. What type of experience do you need to get a nurse case manager job. Is bedside experience necessary? Or is clinic and home health sufficient. How much stress is there
No, bedside nursing expeirence is not necessary, although valuable. In fact, any clinical experience is helpful to include home health and clinc.
This nursing specialty is not drama free and it is not stress free. It is also not a specialty where you do not have a learning curve or you do not need to remain in complaint through certification or examination. I do not think there is a nursing specialty that is without stress, drama, and is easy. Read a few recent threads to get a better idea of how some of us feel about doing our jobs. For example, How do you like case management nursing?
and New Case Manager Here that needs some encouragement
Also try going to the Commission for Case Manager Certification to learn more about Case Management: http://ccmcertification.org/
