Advice for a new CM


Specializes in CCRN, Geriatrics.

Hello All,

I am a novice nurse with about two years of nursing experience in subacute/longterm care and a rehabilitation hospital. I also worked as a home health aide for 4 years before becoming a nurse and dietary before that. What advice would you give me for becoming a CM. I was just offered a new position as a case manager with full training provided but I must admit im kind of nervous. It is a full-time benefited position in which I need considering that I have a dependent and I am paying insurance out of pocket. What are your experiences with case management ?

Not sure I can give advise, but it would help to know what kind of Case Management you are going to be doing. OPD, INPT? What type of facility, etc.

Congratulations and best of luck in your new position.
