- 0Oct 6, '13 by aachavezIm curious what are some nursing jobs that aren't your typical hospital or clinic setting. I've considered going over seas for a while, or trying to get on a cruise ship, I'm also interested in travel nursing. I'm also planning on doing short missionary trips to volunteer in clinics. I'd like to know what other places an RN can find employment outside of the traditional settings. How do you find these positions? Have you ever had a really interesting nursing job outside of the traditional setting?

TV Channel 6, Philadelphia, PA, has an RN reporter who does health-related type features.
Nurses are also in upper level administrative positions in agencies like Red Cross, Hospital Assoc, CDC, etc.
State Civil Service positions for nurses exist that are NOT for hands-on care.
Nurses serve as lobbyists or are politicians themselves.

She does home visits of preemies and NICU graduates, assesses their health needs and developmental milestones, and makes recommendations for the types of services they may qualify for. She loves her job, but the pay is not great and she has to drive a lot.
