Wants to Work From Home

  1. Dear Nurse Beth,

    I am an RN with 9 years of experience in a small rural hospital (ER, OB, MedSurg experience). I love being a nurse, but am finding the schedule requirements of current employer difficult, at best, on my family. I am trying to explore work from home opportunities that would utilize my nursing background but am striking out. I recently learned about "health coaching" and have inquiries out on that. Do you know of any work from home nursing fields?

    Thank you!

    Dear Wants to Work From Home,

    It may take persistence, but you have great experience. Working from home is a great way to utilize your nursing skills away from the bedside. Read 8 Work From Home Jobs

    • A large number of work from home jobs include case management. Typically employers of work from home case managers are insurance companies.
    • Telephonic health coaching is offered by some insurance companies and self-insured entities and involves following up on individuals and helping to set wellness goals.
    • Some hospitals are offering now coding jobs, and remote auditing. Other jobs include telephone triage, utilization review, and claims review.
    • Online nursing instruction is an option if you enjoy teaching

    Register on one or two job search engine sites, such as Indeed. You may very well find the perfect job for you.

    Best wishes,

    Nurse Beth

    I work telephone triage nursing from home and it's the best nursing job I've ever had. I love it - it's my forever job until retirement (God willing).

    Feel free to send me a personal message if you want more information.

    Good luck!

    I just sent you a PM about this topic! I believe that all you should have to do is click on the highlighted user name of the individual that you wish to chat with, and a list of options should appear; one of which is the "Private Message" option. Good Luck!
