Inactive or Retired Status

For Certified in Care Coordination and Transition Management (CCCTM®) nurses, we offer alternative options for CCCTMs instead of recertifying when the certification expires.

Inactive Status

Have you had a "life happens" situation that prevented you from meeting the necessary requirements to recertify?

CCCTM nurses unable to meet the eligibility for recertification may apply for Inactive Status.

Inactive Status lasts for three years during which the certificant may not use the CCCTM credential. A CCCTM nurse may apply for Inactive status one time only in their career.

During or at the end of the three-year Inactive Status, the nurse may reinstate the certification by applying for recertification by continuing education or by exam. The practice hours and contact hours must be within the immediately preceding years. If approved, the new certification period will be effective for five years from time of reactivation.

Retired Status

CCCTMs who have retired within the current certification period but wish to stay connected with other CCCTMs may apply for Retired Status.

CCCTM Retired designation is renewable every five years.

The retired nurse may use “CCCTM Retired” on a resume or below their name and credential on a business card, but NOT after your signature (e.g. patient chart, name badge).

If a CCCTM Retired nurse re-enters the nursing workforce within three years of the status, the nurse may regain the CCCTM credential via continuing education. If the CCCTM-Retired reenters the nursing workforce after three years of the status, the nurse must regain CCCTM by examination.
