The Case Manager’s Handbook 6th Edition Home Study Course (with Handbook)
Case managers seeking to prepare for a role in case management and also looking to study for and take the Certified Case Manager (CCM) Exam, Registered Nurses (RNs) and Social Workers (SWs) who need to meet their state’s RN or SW Continuing Education (CE) licensing requirements can rely on The Case Manager’s Handbook Home Study Program to achieve these goals. The Case Manager’s Handbook Continuing Education Test, which has been approved for 80 CE credits, can be taken online to prepare for the CCM exam or to help meet CE credit requirements. Please Note: This does not provide CCM certification, but rather serves as a resource to prepare you for that exam. Additionally, the 80 CEs cannot be applied retroactively toward your CCM exam; you must apply to take the exam, be deemed eligible and then pass the exam.
Our Home Study Program’s CE Test is based on case management’s definitive reference book, The Case Manager’s Handbook, now in its 6th Edition. Authored by Mullahy & Associates President Catherine M. Mullahy, RN, BS, CRRN, CCM, it provides “need to know” information on all aspects of case management in an easy to follow, conversational style. It is relied upon extensively in college/university graduate and undergraduate courses across the United States, Canada and 18 other countries worldwide, as well as by healthcare providers, managed care and insurance companies, plan sponsors and professional associations.

- The fundamentals on “Best in Class” case management
