RNs and LPNs can work from home for insurance companies in prior authorization, continued stay review and case management. I don't know how long you've been an LPN, but depending on that and what kind of experience you've had, you might be able to get a job with an insurance company eventually working from home. You usually have to work for the company for a certain amount of time before you're allowed to work from home though. I would caution you though, just because you would be working from home, doesn't mean you wouldn't need child care. Depending on what area you might get a job in, trying to do that job and run after a toddler would be next to impossible. I know that you wouldn't be able to do it with prior authorization nor continued stay review because you really need to be able on focusing on your work, and being available if providers call with information, doctors call wanting clarification on something you've sent them for review, etc. I can't speak for case management because I haven't worked in that area yet. I don't know how other companies are but the company I work for has daily production goals for us and if I didn't sit at my desk literally the whole day, I'd never reach those goals. Also, just because you're working from home, doesn't necessarily mean you will be able to sign off at 5 or 6pm. Again, I don't know about other companies, but the one I work for, since I work from home, kind of expects me to stay online and finish my work no matter how late. I think that's more of an unwritten rule, but we all have MSN communicator and I'm not the only one that can be seen online after our scheduled quitting time of 5pm. I don't mean to be discouraging, just trying to give you a realistic view. I worked as an RN for 6 years before I stumbled onto this job. It isn't all perfect, but it beats working bedside and having to be exposed to body fluids on a daily basis. Good luck with your studies! You might check out some of the head hunting websites, they always have nursing positions posted. Again, good luck!
