I recently found out that I am pregnant and I am desperately searching for work at home opportunities for after the baby gets here. I hate the thought of leaving my infant with a babysitter 5 days a week, and my husband doesn't make quite enough to cover us all at this point. Has anyone heard of any opportunities like this? I live in Dayton, Ohio. Thank you!!

There are work from home opportunities, but you often have to have so much time on the job before they will set you up at home (ie. after 90 days you may be able to work from home). Check out insurance companies and Utilization Management opportunities, they are often work from home depending on your area. Just keep in mind, they may require you to be able to have full access for the time you are scheduled to work. With these opportunites you will need to be on the phone without any background noise. I have known somene who worked from home who was no longer able to work from home because the company heard dogs barking in the background. Calls are monitored. Ever heard the phrase "this call may be recorded for quality and training purposes"?

Not all nurse work from jobs are telephonic. However, they are all computer based. You'd need to have access to high speed internet, not wifi, so you'll have to be able to connect directly to the modem for your work even if the rest of your home utilizes wifi. You'll need a private work space, generally one that can be locked and/or is away from home traffic to protect HIPPA. Some jobs require a ground telephone line (this is not a priority for jobs that aren't telephonic). You'll also have to work within the basic office hours for the company but most have flexibility within those hours. This means no working around the clock whenever you want but within a basic flexible schedule. For instance, basic office hours are 9-5 so you need to start work no later than 9am and end no later than 5pm BUT you can start as early as 7am and end at 330pm. Make sense?

These are things to think about as you search for telecommute/remote/work from home jobs. Your best bet for these jobs are insurance companies, DME companies, and Medicare appeals companies. Jobs can also be found in hospitals and clinics but they are harder to find. If you don't want to work health care, you can find work from home jobs in the travel industry, with American Express, credit card companies, and sales. Those are usually telephonic and computer based - so you're on the phone with a headset all day. Good luck!

One more thing: if all else fails, contact a healthcare recruiter and tell them what you're looking for in a job. You can find tons of recruiters on LinkedIn. If you aren't on there, go to the site, create a free profile and account and search for recruiters and jobs. Actively network. This can make a world of difference in the number and quality of jobs you find.

Hi there. There are telecommute positions with Unitedhealth and Cigna for lpns. Do a search with those companies in your area.

Keep in mind that even if you work from home there will need to be someone to take care of your child while you work. You cannot care for your child at the same time you are working.
