On this special bonus episode of The Nurse Keith Show, we interview Deanna Gillingham, who is an RN, Certified Case Manager, author, and nurse entrepreneur. She is a leader in case management with over a quarter-century of experience in healthcare as a Registered Nurse and Case Manager. In addition to her complex and transplant case management experience, Deanna has worked in a variety of clinical settings including, med-surg, dialysis, oncology, hospice, SICU, LDRP, L&D, and ambulatory care. She has also worked as a travel nurse, agency nurse, and patient service representative.
As co-founder and CEO of the Case Management Institute, LLC, Deanna is developing the case management workforce through her books, courses, and events. Her Foundations of Case Management Course provides nurses transitioning into case management with a firm foundation of the practice. Her Facebook group, Case Managers Community, provides a place for networking and support.
Deanna’s annual Case Managers Cruise is a fan favorite where she gathers industry leaders to provide continuing education to case managers while sailing the Caribbean Sea.
Deanna has served on the Board of Directors of the CMSA Foundation, is a member of The Case Management Society of America (CMSA), Registered Nurse Innovators, Influencers, & Entrepreneurs (RNiie), and The National Nurses In Business Association (NNBA). She also serves on the board of directors of The Playa del Carmen (Mexico) Seaside Rotary whose mission is helping Playa’s children.
Deanna is currently living her dream life in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. From there she is writing her next book or course from her patio overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Unless that is, she is traveling the world with her friends and family.
