“Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost effective outcomes.” (Case Management Society of America [CMSA], 2010)
The Capstone College of Nursing offers the distance-based Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with all courses offered online. The Nurse Case Management (NCM) concentration prepares nurses for the collaborative and cross-disciplinary specialty practice of case management, to assume leadership positions in healthcare administration, and to coordinate and administer Nurse Case Management services at the macrosystems level. Although emphasis is placed on rural populations, graduates of this program will be able to assume leadership positions and provide Nurse Case Management practice in a variety of settings and healthcare organizations.
Note: The Nurse Case Management concentration requires a clinical practicum (420 hours). It is the student’s responsibility to identify a site with an appropriate clinical facilitator. Prior to the clinical practicum, the student will start the process of obtaining a CCN Letter of Agreement (LOA) or a Clinical Affiliation Contract with the agency. No clinical practice will take place until the student has been notified by CCN of approval.
