Elizabeth “Libby” Chovan, R.N., case manager at Pardee Hospital, recently passed the Accredited Case Manager (ACM) certification test. She is now a Certified Hospital Case Management Professional.
“I am always striving to improve my practice and felt this was an important milestone in my career,” said Chovan. The ACM certification was created by the Accredited Case Manager Association in 2005 and is designed specifically for hospital case management professionals.
This certification is unique among case management certifications because the examination specifically addresses case management in the hospital setting by testing core case management knowledge as well as competency in individual skills. The examination utilizes clinical simulation testing methodology to test “competency beyond knowledge.” A passing score on both the core and the discipline-specific portions entitles individuals to the ACM credential.
