Case Management Nursing Salary Facts

Case management nurses are frequently employed in hospitals, nursing homes, and home health care agencies. These medical professionals combine the skills of a nurse and a social worker, managing patient care and creating a treatment plan for new admissions and chronic care cases. Some case management RNs even work for the government or as consultants to insurance companies.

Training and Education for Case Management Nurses

Nursing case workers train in a conventional nursing program, but must complete additional certifications after at least a year of experience of clinical practice. Most earn a registered nursing license from their state upon graduation, and later pursue Accredited Case Manager certification from the American Case Managers Association.

Case Management Nursing Salary and Income Expectations

Wages for case management nurses are typically highest in hospitals, surgical clinics, and doctors' offices, and lower in home health care, hospices, and nursing care facilities. Case management nursing salary expectations vary widely depending on experience, professional qualifications, and the type of medical setting in which they work.

Although the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not classify case management nursing salaries individually, they can be found under two other categories: Medical services managers and administrators, who earned a mean annual income of $103,680 in 2014, and registered nurses, who earned a mean salary of $69,790 in the same year. Case management nursing salaries are on the higher end of nursing incomes, and the BLS reports that the top 10% of registered nurses earned over $65,470 in 2014.
