"This scholarship significantly helped me achieve my goal in becoming a certified nurse case manager as I was able to purchase books and take practice exams. Earning my Case Manager Certification from the Commission for Case Manager Certification allows me to practice in full capacity as a nurse case manager for workers' compensation".-Jessica Souza, Case Management Foundation 2016 Certification Scholarship recipient
