Certified Managed Care Nurse (CMCN) versus Case Manager (CCM):

What's the difference?



CMCN coursework is an overview of case management, disease management, quality and utilization review/management, and preventative healthcare.

CCM workshops relay case management and case management-related knowledge.

CMCN requires completed coursework, but you don't need a certain number of years working in managed care, just a valid nursing (RN or LVN) license.

CCM requires 1-2 years of case management employment experience.

The CMCN course is completely self-driven and can be completed at home, in your own time. The CMCN Home Study is $350 for the course and one year of membership with AAMCN. For groups of 3 or more, the Home Study can be purchased at $295 each.

The CCMC offers a 2-day workshop to prepare you for the CCM Exam, which costs $599 and requires extra travel and accommodation expenses.

To renew your CMCN, you need 25 nursing CEUs and $55 every 3 years.

Renewing your CCM requires 80 CEUs and $199 every five years.
