Case Management Nursing
The Career Path for a Case Management Nurse
A case management nurse concentrates on the administrative side of the job. Nurse case managers coordinate healthcare services for patients and often work with specific groups, such as cancer patients, the elderly or children. Case management nursing entails evaluating a medical condition, developing and implementing a treatment plan, coordinating various medical resources, and communicating with the patient (and sometimes insurance companies). Case management nurses interact with patients and family members, doctors, clinical social workers, community case managers, rehabilitation therapists and anyone else involved in the patient’s care. An important function of the case management nurse’s job is also to minimize the duplication of services.
