    What type of Nurse Case Manger are you?

    I do pediatrics for insurance company/medicaid, I used to do special needs OB for medicaid in another region. You have a lot to learn but its interesting, I loved OB

    Can't believe the difficulty hiring CMs

    I know the companies I worked for if a case manager left the case were divided among other case managers until the position(s) were filled.

    What type of Nurse Case Manger are you?

    legal nurse consulting as always peaked my interest, I am a few credits away from my associates in paralegal studies...I was doing that once upon a time ago when I thought my disability would keep me from nursing. Do you like it? How intense is it, and what types of cases do you look over?

    Got my RN license in CA with 5 felonies and 3 midemeanors

    Awesome! With all that you have been through I think you will make a terrific nurse!

    Hello I am Laydiebuug and I am a Pediatric Case Manager for an MCO. Prior to coming into my new position I worked at another MCO that specialized in Special Needs Pediatrics and I managed the OB program which I adored. My ultimate goal is to Case Manage in my own non-profit just to single battered women and teenage mothers. I am also working on my BSN. I am office based now, I used to be what is called a hybrid in my last position which had a lot of perks but I don't miss it that much. So are you guys hospital based, HMO, MCO, State, or private? What do your main duties consist of? How did you end up in Case Mangement? Do you plan to stay and do you miss bedside nursing if you were bedside? Just trying to break the ice. Feel free to ask me whatever :)

    Thank You! I have hooked myself with that Website and my position here gives us all necessary resources and they even pay for it. I am also looking to attend some conferences so that I can get an even better understanding surrounding this booming field. I really appreciate the guidence.

    Warm Welcome

    I didn't say anything about NOT being welcome, I was reading through post and it didn't feel welcoming....WHO ARE YOU TALKING TO LIKE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM? I said I wasn't bitter and I am not, you are the one attempting to take this somewhere else. Read through the some of your post and imagine someone from the outside who doesn't know you would feel reading them. I didn't say it was in your intention to make anyone feel some kind of way, I said I did and not mad or bitter just like it wasn't very friendly in here. The first part of your first response was fine but then you took it somewhere else

    I never said I wasn't furthering my education but I am not finished so I am still considered an LPN, I am an LPN but thats not the only thing I have an education in. I am not bitter, just sorry that its not more friendly in here. I think education is a great thing, I didn't say I was opposed to it. I understand all those reasons I just thought this category was open to all nurse case managers no matter what the education level.

    Being a professional with tattoos?

    Of course you can, I have a visible tatoo(s) and I work in a corporate position.

    Good Afternoon all, I started reading through the threads here and lost my smile quickly. I got excited about seeing the Case Management category and got excited. I thought "yeah peers". Reading through the threads it seems some of you think because I am an LPN I shouldn't be doing the job as a Case Manager because I lack the education. I could go on about how great I am at my job but I won't. I just thought this would be a great place to connect to my peers. Bounce ideas off each other and share what we do and what makes us good at it. I guess not. You all may have your reasons for thinking because you have a higher degree you are better at being a case manager but get to know people and their backgrounds before you generalize.

    I wanted to come in here and feel like I was welcome and exchange information and ideas, but reading the postings... in some of your opinions because I am an LPN I am not educated enough to be in this career field. Thanks

    I love Glassdoor if I had read the reviews on my former job I would never have taken it, before I took this case management position I am at now I looked at glassdoor and reviews were good and I took the job and am so happy. The advice is good...look at Glassdoor!
