Top 5 Work at Home Nursing Jobs For Registered Nurses

Posted on the 24 August 2012 by Pacificcollege @pacificcollege1

Interest in nursing school is on the rise, and for good reason; the pay and benefits that come with a nursing degree are among the best. What you may not know, however, is that many of these high-paying positions can actually be done from the comfort of your very own home. Here are five employment opportunities you may want to consider once you have your nursing degree.

Telephone Triage or Telehealth
If you have a private room with a door in your home, then you have what it takes to fill this position, even by strict HIPPA laws. The company that employs you will give you the necessary equipment you need to work from home. Since periods of heavy activity will most likely fall during the night and on weekends, flexibility is key.

Medical Transcription or Billing/Coding
This position relies on your nursing expertise and command of medical terminology, tests and procedures – all of which you learn at nursing school. You may need to take a few additional courses in order to fully grasp billing and coding, but your nursing degree still makes you a prime candidate.

Legal Nurse Consultant
Here you would be working closely with law firms and insurance companies. Some may require that you work for them onsite initially, then transition to working from home once they feel you can work unsupervised. You may also have the opportunity to open your own company, offering consulting services to multiple companies and firms.

Home Health Care
Though a few hours of work a week may take place out of your home, your reports and paperwork can all be done from your home. Occasionally, you may also need to attend a meeting at the office, but that’s a small price to pay for the flexibility and great pay associated with this position.

Pharmaceutical companies can also use your nursing degree to help sell products, and though this job may require some outside sales, you still get to work independently and, for the most part, get to set your own hours.
