What Do Case Management Nurse Jobs Entail?

Case management nurse jobs usually require administering a comprehensive plan for a patient or group of patients with the help of other healthcare professionals. 

Nurse case managers communicate closely with patients and their loved ones about treatment options and status of their condition. This helps ensure the most personal and individualized plan for treatment. 

What are Some of the Specific Duties of a Nurse Case Manager?

On a day-to-day basis, a nurse case manager may evaluate new patients, make health decisions for routine care, and manage medical records. Case management jobs are concerned with the overall, big picture status of a patient’s health. 

With long term well-being in mind, nurse case managers may discuss plans directly with the patient, their family, doctors, other nurses and health specialists. This also includes providing emotional support to the patient and their loved ones. 

With this in mind, nurse case managers must have a strong knowledge in medical care to diagnose, administer and discuss medication options, and provide overall treatment to the patient.

What are the Requirements to Become a Case Management Nurse?

Like many other nursing positions, case management nurse jobs require a nursing degree from an accredited nursing school. If you are considering going to school to become a nurse case manager, popular majors include anatomy, psychology, behavior science, or any nursing-related degree. While either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree may suffice for the position, nurse case managers must be licensed in the state in which they are practicing. 

Besides these educational and certification requirements, case management nurses must also have strong communication skills since they will be working closely with doctors, patients, families, and insurance providers. They often must be able to handle multiple tasks at once while demonstrating a strong knowledge of medical and healthcare terminology and understanding.
