Are there any telecommuting/virtual RN positions?

  1. I am curious about finding a telecommuting or virtual nurse job. I have done telephone triage in an MD office in the past but would like to work from home preferably during the night. Does anyone know any companies that hire telephone triage nurses for this type of thing? I am in the Illinois area and have an Illinois and Florida license.

    Hello! I actually HAVE 6 years experience as a telephone triage nurse and am looking for a change, looking to perhaps work with another venue for telephonic nursing. I have also 15yrs of critical care nursing experience, open heart unit, telemetry, heart transplant, and now of course the telephone triage experience. Missfishstick

    I'm not sure what type of telephone/virtual nursing job you're looking for, but I work for an insurance company doing preservice reviews as well as review concurrent hospital stays. I work Monday-Friday 8-5. No weekends, no holidays and the pay is better than my husband's pay and he is a nurse in the local ER. The insurance company won't look at nurse's who apply right out of school, but want nurses who have had experience in different areas of nursing so they will have a good base built in their nursing judgement. There are also case management telephonic nursing jobs. Anyway, hope this gives you some ideas for future opportunities. I have my home office about 6 feet from my bedroom, and work in my sweats!

    Question to WAHRN59: When you says the insurance companies want experience in different areas, would you please elaborate on the number of years' experience in each different area? For instance, 2 years in med/surg, 2 years in ER, 2 years in Ped's - or would one year (in 5 or 6 different areas) suffice? Thanks for your help..... Just trying to get an idea of experience levels.

    who do you work for WAHRN59? I have been searching everywhere for something part time from home so I can spend more time with my kids.

    I have been telecommuting for 5+ years but it is time to change it up a bit. I love working from home, I would like to find a similar situation maybe less hours and maybe not triage. I like the sound of the insurance company job. My hours are long (10 hr shifts) and I work every other weekend. Which insurance companies hire nurses for those postions?
