CCMs are seasoned professionals:

  • 61% of CCMs have been in case management for 10 or more years
  • Professional background:
    • 88% RN
    • 8% Social worker
    • 4% Workers' compensation

Salaries for CCMs continue to rise. The majority of CCMs earn more than $80,000 annually, and salaries have trended upwards for 5+ years. That compares favorably with median salaries for nurses and social workers—the fields in which most case managers are trained. A majority earned salary increases in the past 12 months, too, indicating a strong upward salary trajectory. More than half of CCMs who are executives earn more than $100,000 annually, as do more than a third of CCMs in management roles.

Benefits of CCM certification extend beyond salary alone:

  • 88% of CCMs say certification has had a positive impact on their career.
  • 94% have recommended the CCM to other case managers.
  • CCMs seek certification to:
    • Improve employment options
    • Advance professional standing
    • Enhance personal growth
