    Where I do triage you need a smoking fast internet set up. It has to do over 10mgs downloading. Can you get that in a remote area?

    I got mine through one of my local hospitals. I used to work in pediatric OR, and one of my coworkers told me about the phone triage dept, so I applied but didn't get an offer. Luckily, 6 mos later another position opened up and I got an offer then.

    Try calling some of the area hospitals and see if they have a phone triage dept. We're a pediatric hospital, so we do after-hours coverage for a lot of the pediatrician offices. I think you probably have to be somewhat in the area for our dept, because you occasionally have to go to the hospital to pick something up or do paperwork. But we have nurses that live over an hour away from the hospital, and several of us will sometimes work our shift even when we are out of town...all we need is an internet connection.

    You can also try just doing an internet search. I think there are some insurance companies that offer phone triage, too, but couldn't tell you any specific ones.

    Seriously looking to do at-home triage nursing; I'm an RN with experience in all age groups, including pedi. Does anyone have info on this type of nursing?

    Try typing "telephone triage nurse" in your browser window and hit Search. There are multiple companies all over the country that advertise jobs for triage nurses. Having the experience you do willhelp a lot. In telephone triage nursing, you have protocols to follow based on the patient's chief complaint. You listen to them, and use your assessment, decision making, and patient interaction skills to assist the patient.
    I've just started training for a pediatric triage nursing position. Most of the pediatricians in my state have signed up with our hospital.. They appreciate the sleep they get. We assign acuities based on the patient's age. Many times we can give them advise over the phone, based on our protocols. Sometimes, we tell them to take their child to the nearest ER. Then we call the ER to let them know that the patient is coming.
    I am starting to love this job. My doctors had told me to stop bedside nursing due to arthritis, and this job is great. I get to sit all night, and don't hurt like I used to after working on the floor.

    I work for a wonderful company that is based out of San Antonio, Tx. I know that they are hiring.... (Carenet Healthcare Services is currently seeking highly motivated, caring, compassionate, committed and talented Registered Nurses to join Carenet's Clinical Team.) You work in office for about 3 months...then earn the opportunity to work from home. They also offer a remote training...if you live outside of Texas, and you have some telephone triage experience! I came from a cardiac critical care background, so it's been challenging...yet exciting to provide care instructions and education over the phone for a variety of issues....This job isn't for everyone! However, it's very rewarding...Plus, how many RN jobs can you show up in your pajama's!!! :-) www.callcarenet.com ( Just tell them...Brenda T sent you ).

    I too am interested in the pay.I am currently doing telephone triage as a temp. I noted on their website they are in Iowa, Texas, California and TN- I don't live in any of those states. My home state is on the northeast coast. Is it possible to live in your home state and work telephone triage in another state?
