In this post, I have exciting News You Can Use that I wanted to share with the readers of Nurse Advocate.
First, I was humbled to be inducted into the Case Management Society of America Fellowship Program. The Case Management Fellows represent a diverse community of thought leaders who take an active role in the identification of future trends, tackle issues affecting the practice of case management, and serve the public and the case management community by advancing the Case Management Standards of Practice through their work. Earning the title of Case Management Fellow indicates a high level of proficiency in the professional practice of case management, shows a commitment to continuous learning through continuing education by contributing to publications, public speaking, and being active on social media to promote the practice of case management. Case Management Fellows are influencers to the growth of the practice of Case Management. The other leaders inducted as Case Management Fellows are: Catherine Mullahy, Mindy Ower, Gary Wolfe, Pat Agius, Jeanie Boling, Hussein Michael Tahan, and Nancy Skinner.
The Fellows are recognized leaders of the case management community, ambassadors of the profession, visionary, strategic thinkers, mentors, authors, speakers, leaders, and facilitators. To learn more about the program click here.
Second: I am putting the finishing touches on a new Special Report that will be coming out in early December. The Report is called: We Are Made of Stories. Stories from a Nurse Advocate. To develop the report, I took several Blog Posts and broke them into categories that made up the chapters of the Report. I used posts that struck a chord with readers and helped them better navigate the broad healthcare system. I look forward to sharing it with you, my trusted readers!
Third, over the past few months, I have been working with a friend and colleague, Elaine Brunner, to develop a new review course for those who have decided to sit for the Nursing Case Management Certification Examination. The program provides information and practical examples that nurses who are sitting for the examination can use as they prepare for the exam. The course complements the Nursing Case Management Review and Resource Manual that is published by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The On-Demand Course was funded by the Case Management Institute and will be hosted on their website starting in December. Here is the link so you can check to see once it is made live,
Fourth: I have joined a new group, WriteRN Digital Agency. The group is led by Janine Kalbash, a nurse entrepreneur who started a nurse-run business to help nurses gain writing gigs. She provides opportunities to pitch articles to editors of various nursing journals who are looking for articles for publications. If you are looking for writing opportunities, visit the WriteRN! So far I have two articles published! The first was published in Everynurse. The title of the article is Maximizing your Career as a Nurse: There Are No Limits. To read the article, click here.
The second article was published in Tailored Healthcare Staffing. My article was titled: My Greatest Memory as a Travel Nurse: A Dream That Came True! This was a fun story it brought back memories of getting married and making the move of my life! Take a minute to read it!
As the year winds down and we head into the holiday season I am working to get various projects completed so I can start looking for new ones to tackle in 2022. Stay tuned!
Dear Anne-Case Management Fellow! Indeed a well- earned achievement. Congratulations on your many special and successful endeavors. I look forward to reading each one. I will make a point of exploring the links provided. Thank you for sharing! 🙏
Way to go Anne! Congratulations on being inducted into the Case Management Society of America Fellowship Program and for becoming a published author. So proud of you. Keep up the good work.
Anne – such great news all the way around! You amaze me – always moving forward to the betterment of case and care managers, advocates, and people who need them.
Thank you for your devotion!
I echo Trisha’s comments. Your passion and dedication to CMSA and numerous other organizations including PACB is a challenge for us all to follow.
Congrats to humble you and your fellow FELLOWS.
Hopefully, this new designation will encourage more CCMs to accomplish activities as you have done.
I remember when there was no CCM designation and some of us were struggling to provide the best care possible while encouraging clinicians to open their eyes to what we were doing for their patients’ benefit and future.
I am happy to have made your acquaintance and pursued some of the actions and standards you displayed.
Awesome Post, Anne! Beautifully written! I echo the other comments. Like you, I feel so humble to be recognized as a Case Management Fellow and in being connected with the other Case Management Leaders in this group. Thanks for sharing!
Congrats Anne, you are an awesome writer and recognition is well deserved. You have the wonderful talent to capture the reader with a opening remark. I feel very privileged to call you my friend for many years.
Congratulations, Anne on such a notable honor. I can think of no one who could deserve the title of “Fellow” more.
I loved your story of becoming a travel nurse. I always feel that nurses can do more in 24 hours than most folks in 8 hours and you just proved that!
