Hey Everyone, please suggest some good online courses on People Management, Handling Data and utilising Data to bring out best results. Basically, any core aspects i can learn as a Business Development Manager that can help me grow in my career. I don't hold an MBA and hence feel a bit left back.

I’m been an acute care RN, BSN since graduating- 13 years ago. I’m now interviewing for remote case management positions. While I’ve never held that title, specifically, I do feel inpatient / acute care RNs are involved in case management on the regular. Is this something you’d consider “experience” if so - how would you speak to that in comparison to the duties of a titled RN case manager? Thank you!
