    why the masters degree? Are they expecting you to perform as CNS's? I haven't heard of this except at the management level. I would think this would limit the pool of applicants. Do they pay more for the masters degree.

    i am currently practicing case mgmt in acute care hospital, and i must say that it is the most frustrating, and unrewarding job. needy doctors, overworked nurses, frustrating families and upper management that can be unbearable. i wanted to take the ccm, but i know that case management isn't for me. any one else out there just as frustrated?

    Hello all! I've been a case manager in the community/home health setting for about a year in the Central FL area. Actually, I'm going back into case management. For the past couple of months I've be a DON for a new home health agency(huge mistake). Aside from the good pay, I have no desire to continue in that capacity. I helped open the agency, passed the surveys from the state, but feel very disconnected from the office and staff. So back to case management I go! Wish me luck...I'm sending my resume(s) out to several companies in the area. Anyway nice to meet everyone.

    Hello, I'm in Southern Cal and work for a company that provides services to insurance companies such as Case Management, UR, claims and bill review. I work from my home mostly although I put in a couple of half-days/weeks on site with one of our clients. I would like to know what kind of liability insurance people have that covers errors/omissions for UR/CM nurses, and need a company recommendation.

    Hey there--
    First time on this site. I am a CCM-- passed the exam in Oct. '06-- very relieved to get it done! Just left my last employer-- doing telephonic CM for Medicaid members. Now looking for something different. May try Disease Management. Anyone out there do Disease Mgmt. or other??

    I also just obtained my CCM in October 2006........whew was the hardest test I ever took (yes even worse than boards and my CCRN). I am an oncology case manager for a HMO.

    this is to #58. the company I just left did CM and DM. Ideally, we were supposed to be able to move the client from a CM to a DM (for intensive teaching needs)-- it didn't always work that way. The last 2 people hired have been called CM/DM's. They are supposed to 'do it all' and I think that is the trend.
