When you think of what a nurse does, your thoughts probably go to direct patient care. If you’re a nurse, you may think that your direct care experience won’t be helpful in seeking a job that allows you to work from home. Fortunately, work from home nursing jobs are available and growing.
Most of these virtual nursing positions involve telephone based patient service or reviewing medical records. A few job titles to search for are telephone triage, case manager, and medical records reviewer.
The companies listed will give you a great starting point to begin looking for these types of jobs. Nursing jobs that allow telecommuting are on the rise as health care companies try to provide both excellent service and cut costs.
