Work as a Case Manager for the CCAC

  1. Hi there,

    I've been considering a move into Case Management for the CCAC and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the pros and cons of working in this capacity. I currently work as an RN on a medical unit, and am also wondering how much (and what type) of experience is preferred for candidates working in Case Management in the CCAC?

    Thanks very much in advance

    Usually CCAC requests 1-2 years nursing experience. Previous experience in public health/ home health is an asset, but not required. Working on a medical unit, you would have acquired good skills, so think about examples and ways to highlight these in a resume.

    Thanks for your reply Joanna. I figured at least a couple of years experience would be required, and experience in different settings (e.g. home health care) would be an advantage. If you have insight into the nature of work as a Case Manager I am interested in what you like and dislike about this type of work?

    I have a friend that used to be a case manager for CCAC. She said it was a lot of paper work and lot of telephone work.

    Its been a while since my original post, but I'm considering broadening my experience (currently working on a medical floor in a hospital). This experience is in preparation for work in the ccac as a care coordinator. I am torn between working as a visiting nurse in the community, working in a nursing home, or telehealth. Obviously working in the community as a visiting nurse would be beneficial but I wonder if the other two options might be useful as well. FYI I currently have 2 years experience on the medical unit.
