With spring and gorgeous weather in full effect it made me wonder, are there any permanent  year round nursing jobs that allow you to be outdoors at least on some occasions? 

The obvious one I know of is summer camp jobs that are only part of the year and usually part time. I also used to work full-time as a nurse at a group home for disabled persons where you took them on outings usually daily, or at least could sit outside on the porch with them for a good amount of the shift. 

Any others you guys got for me?

Home health/hospice nurse... even if you don’t get to spend a ton of time being outside on a nice day with your patients because of all the charting you have to get done, you’re on the move for a good part of the day. Granted, you’re in the car but you could always roll the windows down.

Oh ya, that is a good suggestion. I've thought about trying hospice nursing .

Assertive Community Treatment. It's a high level of psychistric outpatient care. We go out to people's homes, take them to appointments, etc.

Hospice can be such a special job if it ends up being the right fit for you.

Any kind of nursing that involves home visits like working for the state/county in public health, case management through insurance companies, etc. 

Good luck!

I think a flight nurse will literally be out on the field, but that would be all seasons 😂

My county system has a department exclusively for treatment of homeless patients. The doctors and RNs go to areas where homeless tend to gather and administer treatments, appointments, etc right there outside. Of course this requires that you live in an area with a large homeless population and I have heard they administer a lot of narcan so not a job for the faint of heart.

Flight or other pre-hospital nursing? Some public health positions involve traveling around, a community mental RN on an ACT team or similar (MICHM at the VA), hospice/home health, or long-term care group home type settings.
