This Advanced Technical Certificate in Case Management (ATC-CM) certificate provides health professionals a comprehensive educational background in the critical aspects of case management. The program is ideal for those with a health care background who want to expand career options, people currently involved in health care, nursing or social work who want to learn more about case management, and case managers working in hospitals, ambulatory care facilities, managed care organizations, home health facilities, long-term care facilities, plus more.
The program is a 21 credit, hybrid program consisting of three core courses and three case management courses. Students are required to maintain a grade point average of 2.0. A case management practicum is required to complete the program. The course is designed to be self-paced.
Our mission is to create competent, ethical, confident entry-level case managers in a supportive learning environment who are committed to professional development through life-long learning and service to the community. Case management is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost effective outcomes.

Most clinical agencies require students to undergo drug screen and criminal background checks prior to placement in the agencies for clinical experiences. Students whose drug screening and criminal background checks are deemed unsatisfactory may be denied access to clinical experiences by the clinical agencies. Failure to qualify for and meet clinical requirements at clinical sites may prevent completion of the program. Withdrawal from the program may be necessary if students cannot be placed for clinical experiences
Some practice settings may have additional requirements including health insurance, a volunteer application, references, fingerprinting and background check, drug testing, and/or an interview prior to the start of the clinical experience. The additional requirements are the responsibility of the student, including expenses.
The cost of the background check(s) and drug screen(s) is borne by the student. Additionally, it is the students responsibility to have all paperwork completed by the programs published deadline.
Students who are unable to complete the clinical requirements after acceptance into selective access programs are not eligible for refunds of tuition.
A physical examination will be required upon acceptance to the program.
In order to be awarded an advanced technical certificate, students must have met the following requirements.
Note: Students are cautioned to pay particular attention to the following statements.
- Earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (“C”) on all courses attempted at Florida State College.
- Completed the required courses as set forth in the College catalog or as approved by the assistant dean of the area.
- Students who place into college preparatory courses are required to complete designated college preparatory courses with a grade of “C” or better regardless of program of study.
- Completed at least one–fourth of the total hours required for a certificate in residence at Florida State College.
- Students must have fulfilled all financial obligations to the College before they may graduate.
- Graduation dates will be the date at the end of the College term in which students complete the academic requirements for the degree or certificate for which they are applicants. (The removal of an incomplete grade does not affect students’ graduation dates, since the grade change is effective at the end of the term in which the incomplete grade was assigned rather than the term in which the incomplete work was made up.)
- If students expect to complete the coursework under the terms of the catalog in effect during the term of their first registration, they must graduate within five years or they will need to be reassigned to an active catalog. Accordingly, students who enter under this catalog (2011/2012) must graduate by the end of the Summer Term 2016, or they will automatically be reassigned to the 2015/2016 catalog requirements. Changes to requirements as mandated by law or by rule of the District Board of Trustees may supersede this provision.
- Many courses in this catalog have prerequisite requirements and/or prerequisite courses listed in the course descriptions. Students are advised to be guided by these requirements.
- Degree–seeking students whose native language is not English and who fall below a designated cutoff score on the English as a second language entry college placement test (CPT–L), will be required to take English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses prior to registering for other college credit classes. Students from cultures whose language of instruction may have been in English, but the native language is other than English, also come under the CPT–L test and course guidelines. The level of these courses will be determined by the entry placement scores. Individual exceptions will be determined by the EAP program manager. Students who place into EAP, as determined by the test, must complete EAP prefix courses before registering for other college credit classes. Non–degree–seeking college credit students who plan to take English, reading or courses where these are critical requisite skills must also meet these requirements. Exceptions to these requirements can be made by the EAP program manager or designee.
