When I started studying for the CCM Exam, I noticed the information I needed was not easy for me to find and understand.
I needed to organize my notes by knowledge domain and thought this information could help others who were studying for the exam.
I read the study guides, researched the web, spoke to a bunch of people, joined a study group, organized my notes and put the information online so I could easily access my notes from anywhere.
Thus, CaseManagementStudyGuide.com was created.
Growth of a Community
Since the launch in December of 2013, I passed the CCM exam in April of 2014 and have had thousands of visitors use the study guide, and the numbers keep growing.
We have an active Facebook group with over 1600 members. It has become a place for people to connect, share information and help each other.
I smile each time I hear someone passed because of my resources.

I have a question.
Prior to My case management experience of 20 years ago, I was an RN in acute care for ten years. Will this course prepare me for case management today and will I be able to get a job based on past experience and recent certification? To my knowledge, there was no certification process when I was working in the field and had since gone on to work as a DON in Skilled Nursing. Will my background experience provide the kind work history that employers would be interested in?
Hi Barbara, Obviously you have a lot of great experience but the book and courses you are asking about are for an existing Case Manager to help study for and pass the CCM Exam. What would be beneficial for you if you are looking to become a Case Manager is a Course we now have in Beta test with the 1st Group of students finishing in the next month or so. You can sign up to get updates when the Course will be open at https://casemanagementinstitute.com/. Thank you for your comment.
I am a physical therapist with 35 years experience in acute care, home health and owner of an outpatient clinic . I am very interested in changing my career to case management. What are your suggestions to become certified as a case manager?
The following article may help you. https://casemanagementstudyguide.com/which-case-management-certification-is-best/ Most certifications require you to have already been working as a Case Manager before being eligible.
Would this help with the ANCC case management exam if I wanted to do that one as well?
Hi Esmeralda, Yes, the Online CCM Review Course is a great tool for any of the Case Management Exams.
Will this prep course and study guide be enough to prepare me for the CCM exam or do I have to include other resources/ material as well ? Thanks.
Hi Mimi, as far as we are concerned the book and the course should be enough material to get you through the Exam, but I don’t know your study habits nor your test-taking abilities which all come into play.
Does this course prepare you to take the state exam?
There is no ‘State’ test just a National one and yes this is what the course is for.
