OWCP nurse case managers are registered nurses who specialize in providing care and support to federal employees who have been injured on the job. Their goal is to help injured workers recover from their injuries as quickly and completely as possible, and to return to work as soon as they are able.
OWCP nurse case managers provide a range of services, including:
- Comprehensive assessments: Nurse case managers conduct comprehensive assessments of injured workers’ medical needs, functional abilities, and work tolerance. This information is used to develop a personalized case management plan.

These plans may include coordinating medical care, providing education and support, and working with employers to develop return-to-work plans.

- Support: Nurse case managers provide support to injured workers throughout the claims process. This may include emotional support, practical advice, and help with navigating the system.
