As the largest Medicaid managed care organization in the U.S., the national leader in managed long-term services and support, and the top insurer in the nation on the Health Insurance Marketplace, Centene has become the healthcare employer of choice for many clinical professionals.

The skill and talent of more than 48,000 employees helps Centene provide high-quality healthcare solutions to more than 14 million managed-care members and beneficiaries in 32 states, and 600,000 individuals internationally. Nursing professionals are an essential part of Centene's enterprise-wide Medical Management and Health Services strategy. Teams of health service experts, using our advanced clinical analytics, work together to implement award-winning programs, develop care plans, deliver partnerships and work one-on-one with members.

In the past decade, professional opportunities for nurses have transformed, keeping pace with shifts in the healthcare industry. At Centene, many of the innovative policies and strategies we use to improve the lives and health of our members are the direct result of the patient care knowledge that these professionals bring to their roles.

Nurses bring a wealth of experience to several positions in the health plan environment. Among them are:

  • Care managers
  • Prior authorization nurses
  • Referral specialists
  • Concurrent review nurses

Centene health plans work directly with the most vulnerable members - those with developmental, physical, and/or complex health conditions. Nursing staff help identify health risks while enhancing member independence, quality of life, and community engagement. Implementing the latest technology allows our clinical teams to deliver targeted and effective health interventions, while eliminating redundancy and reducing errors.

Our core beliefs have stood the test of time, and today, as our organization builds on those foundations through new technologies and innovations, we are able to take bold steps forward while remaining true to our purpose of transforming the health of the community, one person at a time. Joining Centene means becoming part of a team of focused, driven individuals who work together to help our members enjoy better health and better lives.
