work from home nurse jobsAt first mention, when you tell someone you are a nurse, the automatic assumption is that you work in a hospital, taking care of patients, working 12 shifts for a living. On the surface, nursing presents itself as a “hands-on only” profession, not adaptable to telecommuting. But, to the surprise of many, nursing can take many forms including work-from-home jobs as part of a virtual nurse team.

Many companies are utilizing work-from-home models to provide nursing services to hospitals, clinics and insurance companies. This option not only saves the companies money, but for the right candidate, provides a high-level of job satisfaction. With gas prices at record highs, rush-hour traffic and long commutes, working from home becomes even more attractive.

Working from home as a nurse is a great alternative for many who desire the flexibility and commute-free environment home office can bring.  

Some work from home nursing jobs may include:

  • Case Managers
  • Clinical Nurse Educators

I have searched for these positions as well. It seems you need to live in a large city to find these positions. Working from home would allow my two loves to function together, nursing and being home.

I would LOVE to work from home and still be a nurse. I have never found a position in my area that allows this.
