Are there truly any remote positions for NPs other than telehealth?

Do you mean like insurance or something like that?

Actually, I am asking what kinds of remote home based employment may exist for NPs. There are so many nurses in every field on this site and I am sure know so much more than I do about "what opportunities are out there" for NPs. I have learned so much just scanning the different forums. No one tells you about any jobs on graduation from nursing school other than hospital based bedside jobs, and you are kind of on your own graduating from the NP program.  
I am just tired of the rat race of primary care, rush the patient through, after hours on the EMR, after hours call backs, coding, all about the numbers, in my hurry-did I do right for the patient?, 10 hour days that are actually 14 hours in reality, driving 90 minutes to cover a distant clinic. I would take a cut in pay to work from home, to be able to at least be within walking distance from a child I have that is partially disabled instead of being 45-60 miles away if there were an emergency. 
And yes, I know, work from home means productivity and work, not leisure or family time. I have an RN friend who works for an insurance company that said it is just like on site work, clock in on time, work, take a 15 minute break, clock back in, work and clock out at 5 PM. She said every key stroke is monitored.
