    I am not sure what the diff is, other than employers really like that credential. Also I imagine it is easier to become independent with the credentials behind your name. I am taking it, b/c I want to make a serious go of the independent thing after I have enough experience in all the types of CM areas.

    More employers are recognizing the difference and requiring CCM certification for nurses working in case management related fields.

    At my last job as Case Management Supervisor, I had re-written the requirements to include having a CCM or at least having the ability to sit for the exam.
