Am I Eligible?

Are you considering taking the CCCTM exam but unsure if it's the right fit for you? We'll help you determine your eligibility by answering two questions.

Who practices in a CCTM role?

It's important to understand that all nurses provide some elements of care coordination and transition management (CCTM) in their practice. Patient education, advocacy, care planning, and teamwork are facets of all nursing.

However, the RN who carries out CCTM activities as the majority of the practice is considered to be in a CCTM role.

Also be aware that CCTM is not a nurse's title; it is a role that a nurse performs. Because this role is still developing, there are many titles which may not include "care coordinator" or "transitions manager." The key is not the position title, but the responsibilities of your position.

Nurses in CCTM can practice in almost any setting: in hospitals, outpatient centers, primary care offices, clinics, and more.

How do I determine if I am eligible to take the CCCTM exam?

To determine your eligibility for this exam, look at the Exam Blueprint, especially the Domains of Practice. The Domains list specific activities that CCTM nurses perform.

If these activities describe your RN practice, then you are eligible to take the CCCTM exam, as long as you meet the practice hours and years of experience.
