A May story in the print edition on a requirement for certification of Navy social work case managers should have stated that the only Navy social workers who are required to have a case management certification work under a special program that employs contract nurse and social work case managers. That program comes under the purview of the Washington, D.C.-based Clinical Operations Division of the Department of Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. NASW’s Certified Advanced Social Work Case Manager credential is among the certifications accepted for social work case managers employed by the program. The Navy does not endorse any particular issuer of certifications.
