    I've been a nurse for 3 yrs now and left the bedside after just 8 months. I have worked for 2 different insurance companies in the capacity of medical review, pre authorization, and transplant nurse. I loved every minute of it and have been paid quite well. I just started working for another large insurance company this week as a Work At Home medical review nurse. There are so many different opportunities for Nurses out there and you will love the non bedside environment.

    If you don't mind me asking, what does a medical review nurse do. Cause it sounds interesting. And on top of that....it's work at home!!!

    Hi everyone, I have been an ICU nurse for 10 years and am quite tired of the stress of bedside nursing. Today I am scheduled for a telefonic screening interview for a clinical reviewer position. There will be 3 months of office training and then work from home. I am kind of nervous about the thought of working from home. Anyone have any advise/tips on what to expect? Any info is greatly appreciated!

    I worked in bedside nursing for 10 years and got tired of shifts and holidays and the hassle of working for managers who forgot what bedside nursing is. I left the hospital and discovered that nursing does not end at the hospital lobby. I worked in Public Health and am now a Case Manager for Medicaid. I love my job. I have come to know my patients as people and not just sick bodies passing through. Congrats on your job, it will broaden your horizens like you wouldn't imagine.
