I too have been presented with teletriage nursing (from home) I have been bedside nursing in ER, ICU and Palliatve care for 9 years. I am burnt out from bedside nursing. Currently in a surgical icu at present and am not genuinely happy there
Any comments from teletriage nurses from home please!

I have done telephone triage for about 7 months and I really like it. It's the best nursing job I have ever had! I've been a nurse for 15yrs and have worked in the ER, Med/Surg and Hospice, honestly I hated all those jobs and realized that bedside nursing is just not for me, I think hospice was the worse, I really hated feeling responsible for other people's emotional needs, with telephone triage I dont't have to see any needy patients, no demanding family members thinking they are at the holiday inn, no rude doctors, no call lights and best of all no nights, no weekends, no holidays. If I get a rude caller, in 4-5 min the call is over and I'm done with them vs working a 12 hr shift and dealing with them and there entitled family members the entire day! I work 8-5, walk out the door everyday at 5! I don't have to hope and pray I get Xmas or thanksgiving off because we are closed and everyone is off! I wished it was a work from Home job but I work in a call center. My only regret is that I didn't leave bedside nursing sooner!
