NASW Collaborative

The Commission for Case Manager Certification (CCMC) and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) are collaborating to address the growing demand for health care case managers by giving more social workers the opportunity to earn the Commission’s esteemed Certified Case Manager® (CCM®) credential.

Social workers who qualify for the NASW Case Management Credential will pre-qualify to take the CCMC certification exam for the same fee. For its members, NASW will provide an additional discount.

The collaboration--between the oldest and largest case manager certification body and the oldest and largest social work membership organization—creates new opportunities for bachelor degree- level social workers (and those with advanced degrees) to play an active role in hospitals, health plans, clinics and other health care settings. The CCM is a cross-cutting certification that validates quality and ethical  practice, whether the candidate comes to board certification from nursing, social work or another allied health field.
