Not really knowing what an 'outreach specialist' does limits the discussion. Can you give some detail on exactly what they are supervising?
They sign up patients to enroll them in a care management program
So why are you concerned about having a non-nursing supervisor? You are not working in a nursing role. If you were providing care- then I'd be worried, but you're not.

No. Totally different scope. And RNs that case manage actually DO provide care, Mean Mary, especially in outreach

But she's doing sign-up / enrollment work- NOT managing care if I am reading it correctly.

Why do they hire an LPN if it's just enrolling in the program, anybody can do it. I'm sending there has to be some clinical work involved.
Is the SW supervising a certified Case Manager? I doubt it. It's a low cost program hiring the wrong people.
