    EXCELLENT idea Las Vegas!!!

    Linda, RN BSN, working on CCM exam this October. Started out in case management in Home Health, then did disease management for a managed medicaid co for a short time, now doing worker's comp CM, field-based. I am still figuring out if I like it. I really want to go independent in the future.

    Can this thread be made a "Sticky" so it stays on top of this forum?
  5. by   hoolahan
    OK, I stuck it. But, I always thought making a thread sticky meant having to review posts before they make it to the bb. I will have to check w Brian on how to do this exactly. I may take a day or so until I get it right.

    Good idea Vegas, you're just full of them today!!

    Alright I have been trying to get a job in several areas and case management is one area I cannot seem to break into. I worked BMT for 6.5 years, 11 years in home health and 3 in LTC. What is the secret to getting in?

    Also how hard is the certification test for case managers? I got my BS in Feb and am working in my graduate program now.

    I'm an RN, CPUR, taking the CCM exam next year. I manage the case management (WC), disability management, and UR group that deal specifically with self-insured employers. May go to the field to work next year, who knows?? We are part of a managed care organization (MCO).

    I am a work comp field case manager, RN, BSN; have done this off and on since 1992; after I pass my CCM (thinking positive here) in October, am going to start working on my boss to send me to life care planning school
    I love work comp, but am doing more catastrophic injury managment which I enjoy so much more than the usual repetitive motion and back injuries; am beginning to do work for attorneys some now, so I hope that may eventually lead to something.

    I haven't been on the board for a while, but have enjoyed getting caught up.
    This is me:
    RN, BsN doing Hospital based Case management in Louisiana. Clinical background of adult ICU. I've recently taken the CPUR exam offered by McKesson and am waiting on results. I'll be taking the ANA Modular certification for case management in early 2003.

    I did case management (work comp) for an insurance company for 5 years and an additional few years as the RN supervisor of same. I now do case management in a community health setting for state government. I have my rehab certification (CRRN) but have never been required to have the CCM...none of my organizations ever recognized the CCM because you didn't have to be a nurse to take it.
