CM staff hiring qualifications

It should be noted there is an appreciation of the revision of hiring requirements for case managers to no longer be restricted by six degree fields when seeking appropriate candidates for case management positions.

With that being said, there is no mention of experience being a factor in the hiring process.  Without that inclusion, you could be allowed to hiring someone with a degree in Art Design but has never worked "in the field."  Vice versa, you could have a candidate that has 15 years of experience with case management and brain injury that might have an Associate's Degree that would be barred from being eligible.

In most positions there is an account for experience in lieu of a degree.  Consideration should be made to include this as it pertains to eligibility for TCM CM positions.
