Do you love being a CaseManager, but feel stuck in your career? Are you looking to grow in your profession, or move up in your current position?
You love being a case manager and want to continue, but you’re looking for a way to make it an even better profession.
Obtaining certification may be the answer you are looking for. There are many reasons becoming certified will help you both personally and professionally. There are increased job opportunities for certified case managers. According to the CCMC, “the percentage of employers who require board-certification is growing, 40.2% in 2014 vs. 25.9% in 2004.
If you would like to work from home as a case manager, many jobs require certification. Becoming certified provides more responsibility in your position and increased autonomy within the profession. Finally, in many cases, there is increased pay for certification.
In 2014, I was where you are now. I had one goal related to my career, to become a certified case manager. This goal was important because as a condition of my employment I needed to pass it within the next year.
I was not looking forward to going through the certification process. I’m glad I did, as once I became certified, I landed a job making over 15% more than my previous position! If you want to be a Certified Case Manager, now is the time to act.
Certification through the Commission for Case Manager Certification is the gold standard of the profession.
“The CCMC is the first and largest nationally accredited organization that certifies case managers. The CCMC is a non-profit volunteer organization that oversees the process of case manager certification.” Now is the time to join the 40,000 plus board certified case managers working today.
