Certification in care coordination and transition management is available through the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB). Nurses who pass the exam earn the credential CCCTM® (Certified in Care Coordination and Transition Management).

The American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) offers exam study resources and contact hours, but does not administer the exam.

The CCCTM exam is provided by MSNCB in collaboration with AAACN. Visit MSNCB to learn more about the exam, eligibility criteria, exam blueprint, how to apply, and more.
