Work from home options for nurses

You can fulfill your duties as a health care professional every bit as effectively in these positions.

Nurses today work in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, physician offices, ambulatory care centers, urgent care clinics, and schools. But with the onset of COVID-19, more and more nurses are finding jobs that they can do without having to commute at all, especially since Medicare has temporarily expanded its coverage of telehealth services to respond to the crisis. Work-from-home nursing jobs allow you to do fulfill your duties as a health care professional every bit as effectively as someone who works in a hospital or outpatient facility.

“There are a lot more job opportunities today for nurses who want to work from home,” says Michele George, MBA, BSN, RN, National Director of the Academy of Medical Surgical Nurses. “These kinds of jobs may involve answering calls from patients, or reviewing charts for an insurance company.”
