Becoming a Certified Managed Care Nurse (CMCN) Will Help you Advance your Nursing Career

       The American Association of Managed Care Nurses (AAMCN) was founded by a group of nurses who had a need for education and certification that covers more than just case management or other singular areas. Thus the AAMCN and the CMCN Home Study Course was born. AAMCN has provided thousands of nurses with the CMCN certification and continues to do so today, advancing nurses in their careers and providing a stepping stone for leaving bed-side nursing and moving into management positions. The Home Study Course provides critical care management information that is regularly updated. The AAMCN association also provides managed care nursing continuing education credits through online presentations, live webinars, quarterly and weekly publications, and two annual conferences.

        All of the jobs listed below require, recommend, or prefer that you be a Certified Managed Care Nurse (CMCN). This certification is gaining popularity because it gives you a broader overview of managed care, including aspects of chronic condition management, case management, quality and utilization management instead of only focusing on one of these areas. Nurses with a broader management overview can also communicate better with each department within a company. Becoming a CMCN can help you get jobs like these:

Population Health Specialist - Grand Rapids, MI

RN Care Advisor - Fort Wayne, IN

RN Case Manager - Torrington, CT

LVN Case Manager - Houston, TX

Utilization Manager Nurse - Roseville, CA
