Inside Case Management Nurse Careers

Things you need to know, but nobody tells you


Biggest Surprises

"It Is Not All In School...
I was surprised at how much on the job learning there is. Also - nursing in the real world is VERY different from what is taught. Rapidly changing profession, there is a niche for everyone in it." (RN; 2013)

Career: 30 years of experience, currently based in California, female
School: Studied Nursing at Napa Valley College in California; completed Associate degree in 1972

"I was surprised to find that a nurse must be able to know when to carry out a doctor's orders and when to question them. A nurse must recognize when a situation dictates that an order might be detrimental to a patient's health. A physician is only human; the nurse must always act in the best interest of the patient, even when it may involve challenging a physician's order." (Public Health Nurse; 2013)

Career: 22 years of experience, currently based in Illinois, female
School: Studied Nursing at Kaskaskia Junior College in Illinois; completed Associate degree in 1991

Career Tips

"Avoid Burnout...
If a nursing job just doesn't "feel right", apply elsewhere. Listen to your gut. Never continue to work in a position that is contrary to your personal values. There are many jobs for nurses. Working in a position that is personally and professionally draining can lead to "burnout"." (Public Health Nurse; 2013)

Get someone in nursing, in the specific field you think you are interested in, and shadow them for a week." (RN; 2013)
