Case management is an essential strategy to control costs and to
provide quality care in the current health care environment. While the
importance of case management is documented in the literature and
statements of nursing and health care organizations, there is limited
identification and documentation of case management content in nursing
educational programs. The purpose of this descriptive study was to
identify the current case management content taught in nursing education
programs and to determine the essential case management content relevant
to associate, baccalaureate and graduate nursing education. A Likert scale
questionnaire was developed based upon the 2002 Case Management Society of
America (CMSA) Standards of Practice to identify what content was taught
and what content should be taught in nursing education programs. A Delphi
technique was used to reach consensus among nursing educators (n=143) and
case managers (n=36) about case management content that should be taught
in associate, baccalaureate, and graduate nursing educational programs.
Consensus was established when both the case manager and nurse educator
groups responses reached a mean of 4.0 or above. Both nurse educators and
case managers reported that minimal case management content was presented
in associate and baccalaureate nursing programs. Nurse educators in
graduate nursing programs reported integration of all case management
concepts into the curriculum. Two rounds of surveys were used to reach
consensus with the associate and baccalaureate degree participants on what
should be taught in schools of nursing. One round of surveys was used to
reach consensus with nurse educators in graduate programs. Using the
results of this study, a case management curriculum for each level of
nursing education (associate, baccalaureate and graduate nursing) is
proposed. Nurses comprise the largest group of case managers. Integrating
case management concepts and skills into nursing education will enhance
patient outcomes and advanced the profession of nursing.
