  1. What states recognize these certifications? They sound interesting, but I want to be sure I can use them in either CO or TX. Thanks.

  2. Once every quarter I receive calls from recruiters, Rob Becker and Tim Wentworth. Rob from West coast and Tim from the Southern coast.
    They call me attempting to recruit me for nursing positions that are open. I announced to both that I was mostly complete with an education program from this school in Nursing Case Management. I inquired of both the employability of newly educated / certified Case Managers. Both replied that they would never seek to recruit a Case Manager without at the very least two years experience. Not only would they not recruit they would not even list anyone newly graduated / certified. I also took a short course from June Stark, RN, CCM, she is affiliated with Tuft's University Case management program. I posed the same question, i.e. employability of a newly graduated / certified Case manager. She also replied that she would never hire such an individual. When I also posed the question, where could such a graduate seek employment, she had no real answer. Receiving information of this such is very disheartening to say the least. I clearly regret dedicating as much time as I have to what seems to be a useless profession for a new graduate. Medical Coding & Billing would have been a much better profession to enter without experience.
