Brain Injury Services Case Manager Staff Qualification/Credentials:

Pages 7/8

Brain Injury Services Case Manager Staff Qualification/Credentials:

i) The degree requirement changed from specific fields to only “must hold a bachelor’s degree OR…registered nurse.”


QUESTION: Does that mean any Bachelor’s degree, even if it is completely unrelated to human services? 

Clarification needed.

***It would be more beneficial to replace bachelor's degree with two or more years' experience.



Will current employees without the specified credentials grandfathered in or do we have to terminate them after years of experience in this field? This would cause current providers to lose many staff members. 


***QBIS and CBIS are totally different certifications:

QUESTION What is the timeframe that a person has to get these certifications in?

***It would make more sense if new employees had two years to obtain certifications.
