Travel Home Health Case Manager Jobs

Home Health Case Managers oversee the direction and coordination of a patient’s care and the care provided for their caregivers and family. Working closely with the rest of the home care or hospice care team, case managers decide how resources are allocated and formulate care plans for each patient. For hospice care, they also determine what level and types of counseling, education, and care the patient’s caregiver and family members will need before, during, and after the patient’s death. Case managers are usually Registered Nurses (RN). They direct the care provided by other RNs, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), and home health aides. They work alongside physical and occupational therapists, nurse practitioners, and social workers.

Travel nursing can be an exciting and rewarding career, especially for those who are excited about experiencing new places and meeting new people. There are many benefits to working as a travel nurse, such as an increased income, professional development opportunities, and gaining experience in areas outside of your own geographic region.

Travel Home Health Nurse Case Manager FAQ

As a general average, home health case manager RNs may expect to earn between $65,000 and $85,000 annually. Based on data from various job and salary platforms, the average salary for a nurse case manager in the United States can vary significantly depending on the geographical location, level of experience, and the specific responsibilities of the role.

A home health case manager is responsible for providing and overseeing patient care within their homes. Their duties typically include monitoring patient health status, administering medication, providing necessary medical treatments, and educating patients and their families on disease management and prevention. A registered nurse case manager also coordinates with other healthcare professionals to ensure the provision of comprehensive, holistic care.

Furthermore, home health case management involves managing home health aides and licensed practical nurses, ensuring adherence to healthcare regulations, and handling administrative tasks such as records maintenance and patient scheduling.

Education & License Requirements

Registered nurses need to complete their associate degree or bachelor's degree at an accredited nursing program and take the National Council Licensure Exam NCLEX -RN Exam, which is a requirement to practice as a registered nurse in the United States.

Once you earn your registered nurse license, you can start gaining clinical experience, preferably in a home health or RN case management setting. Some employers may require nurses to have at least one or two years of experience in a clinical setting before considering them for a home health RN case manager position.


Obtaining a certification in case management, such as the Accredited Case Manager (ACM) or Certified Case Manager (CCM), can enhance your job prospects. These certifications demonstrate the nurse's knowledge and expertise in the field of case management.

While compensation offers can vary greatly depending on the contract or agency offering, pay packages for a nurse case manager typically have four major components: hourly taxable wages, meals and incidentals, housing, and travel.

Hourly Pay

Full-time nurses working at healthcare facilities receive a salary, but most travel nurse employers offer hourly wages. Every pay package for a travel nurse must include a taxable hourly wage, and the amount can vary depending on the shift, location, and specialty required of the assignment.


Housing payments can be included in a payment from a staffing agency. This is typically offered to a travel nurse in two ways. Either the company is providing housing, or the travel nurse is taking the housing stipend. It is more beneficial for the traveler to take the housing stipend for two primary reasons. First, they will have a choice in where they stay. Everyone’s definitions of comfortable and acceptable are different. The second reason the housing stipend is more beneficial for them is that it can be given as a nontaxable amount.

Meals and Incidentals

Also known as per diems, meal and incidental stipends provide a daily budget for daily living expenses for travel nursing professionals. These standards vary depending on the cost of living in cities and states across the country.

Travel Expenses

Travel is the last portion of the pay package. Many recruiters may not even offer travel and instead put that money into the per diems or housing for their travel nurse so they are receiving the benefits over the entire contract, not just at the very beginning or end of the contract.

While a travel stipend can be used to cover the cost of a flight for the traveler, it is more often than not used to subsidize the traveler's expenses to and from an travel nursing assignment. Travel expenses can be offered as a reimbursement rate per mile, though many agencies will opt to offer a flat rate to and from an assignment.
