    I have several friends who are Utilization Review Nurses. My concern is that I would really miss the human contact/interaction if I were to take on this job. And can you see yourself doing this for say, the next 15 years?

    I think that if you are worried about missing the human contact/interaction of your current job, you likely will miss it. For me, when I transitioned out of bedside nursing and into case management, I was ready to get away from hands on care. It made sense for me. I have no trouble seeing myself working as a telephonic case manager for another 15+ years.
    But, you are not alone. There are many nurses who just simply could not give up working hands-on with patient care.

    Hi Leader25! Thanks for the comment. Many insurance companies have UR and CM positions. Not all of these positions allow you the opportunity to work from home though. Good companies to search are Aetna, Anthem and UHC. You can also do general searches on Indeed and other job boards for remote nursing jobs.

    Best of luck to you!! ~Melissa

    I don't have leads, but I can certainly offer a little insight! Large insurance companies often have UM positions available - think Humana, Aetna or United Healthcare. Go to your favorite job board and search for Utilization Management or Nurse Remote and you will likely find some opportunities.

    I hope this helps! Best of Luck!! ~Melissa

    Hi there! I am not overly familiar with Canadian Healthcare. I would think that similar positions would be available, but with a more universal system, it may not be a service that is used as much.

    Ask around. Do some searches online for utilization management opportunities and see what you find. Best of luck!! ~Melissa

    Thank you for this article, I have been researching this type of job and it became very confusing. I really want to transition into a home job in a few years, or sooner. Do you have to go through a course to land a job?
