Sit down nursing jobs

  1. When I graduate I am going to be looking at a mound of debt. Will be needing to pick up a second job besides the hospital. Definitely don't want to do floor nursing at two different hospitals.

    What types of jobs are available for nurses that are "sitting" jobs that are available to new grads or minimal experience?

    A doctor's office maybe.

    But it will be hard to find a second job that will be flexible enough to accomodate the ever-changing schedule of the hospital job.

    Most folks would want to be able to focus only on their new job for first several months. Many new nurses are overwhelmed at first, so imagine with with two new jobs?! Check out some other threads on maximizing income and taking two jobs right out of school.

    After you get settled in to your first nursing job, maybe you could pick up extra shifts since the overtime pay would mean that you wouldn't need to work as many hours to make as much money. Just a suggestion!

    Try telephonic nursing. It is definitely a sitdown job. After gaining a bit of experience you should be qualified to do that. Or insurance HMO/PPO/PPA type health care management...computer,phone, liason type nursing at a desk...

    You can do Hedis chart reviews. It's data collection on your days off & you definitely get to do a lot of sitting! And you get to travel to different doctors office & see different settings which is cool.
