As a case manager, you will work closely with patients and their families to develop a long-term healthcare plan that considers their preferences and goals.
Typically, case managers work with patients diagnosed with one type of disease like HIV/AIDs or cancer, or they work with patients in a specific age group such as children or the elderly. This program prepares you to assume leadership positions in healthcare administration and to coordinate and administer case management services at the macrosystems level.
As one of the only case management programs in the Southeast, UA's Capstone College of Nursing is committed to helping nurses advance their careers. The MSN Case Manager concentration is offered online to accommodate demanding work schedules.
The master's degree program in nursing at The University of Alabama is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
