Retaking the Exam

On October 30, 2020, MSNCB transferred the Care Coordination and Transition Management (CCCTM) certification program to the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

If you hold an active CCCTM certification and are renewing, are interested in the CCCTM certification, or looking to verify CCCTM credentials, please visit the ANCC website. You may also contact ANCC at for more information.

The CCCTM® certification exam is a national exam that represents the role of registered nurses in care coordination and transition management practice across the continuum of care, from acute to ambulatory to community and other settings.

Strategies for Preparing for the Next Exam

Below are some ideas to consider that may allow you to be successful on your next attempt:

  • Benefit from your score report's breakdown of subscores in the major test areas. Let it guide you in determining your strengths and focusing your study on the weak areas.
  • Taking an exam is a different skill set than being a nurse. Find resources to help you boost your test-taking skills.
  • Determine how you best study, and find the perfect match. This list of study aids may help.
  • Join a study group, or ask a CCCTM nurse you know about their strategies for success.
