Thanks all for the congratulations! I'm really happy about this opportunity. I'm working for a national insurance company so I'm not self-employed. I found this opportunity through Monster.com. First I was hired by a temporary agency to work at this insurance company in the prior authorization department for a term of 1 year with the insurance company having the option of hiring me at the end of that year. My year was up at the end of the year and my boss extended me an offer to work full time which, of course, I took! I knew that once I was a permanent employee I would eventually get to work from home. I wasn't sure how long it would take, but I was pleasantly surprised and a little freaked, when one of the executive assistants told me to start setting up my home office a space, I was going home! Well, the next thing I know, I got my computer encrypter, work at home computer training, and then my stuff was loaded in my car! All in the space of about a week! I know that in my company we have prior authorization, case managers, continued stay review, and health initiative nurses that work from home. I would suggest searching Monster.com or Career Builder.com. The offer I got when I hired on full time was a little more than what I was making as a temporary employee so I was pleased with the offer. My husband still makes less than I do, which I find quite humorous since he is an RN in the ER. My son is thrilled since I will be able to take him to school and pick him up after school. Anyway, thanks again for all the congrats!

I'd give ANYTHING to be in your shoes....

I have been driving my sister's 14-year-old van since August, when the transmission went out on my car.

Yesterday the alternator broke on the van while I was working.

If we don't get it fixed today, I don't work next week...or any week. :(

You might want to look on Monster.com or Careerbuilders.com. With 38 years experience in nursing and with case management on your resume, I would think you would be an asset to any company. Just a thought.

Pam...I'm loving this idea of working from home. What kind of experience would I need to do this? How many years experience? Thanks!

You generally need 3 - 5 years of experience. The best experience for these types of positions depends on the position you are most interested in seeking. Typically the best areas in which to get experience are in critial care, rehabilitation, and home health care for the positions that are most typically available.
