Work From Home Nursing Jobs

Work from Home Nursing Job Overview

Work from home nurses work for a wide variety of medical centers and organizations around the country. They lend their knowledge and experience to helping patients even if they never see them on a face-to-face basis. The type of work-at-home nursing positions vary greatly, and some jobs may include dealing with patients in the home, while others include working phone lines and giving information directly over the phone. The most common duties of a work from home nurse may include:

  • Assessing a patient’s immediate health needs
  • Making small talk with patients over the phone or in person
  • Answering questions that patients may have regarding their health conditions
  • Monitoring patients’ heath
  • Communicating with physicals and other nurses regarding the needs of patients
  • Conducting detailed assessments of patients’ health records
  • Collecting and analyzing data for patients
  • Rendering medical opinions regarding patients to help physicians discern treatment possibilities
  • Completing administrative tasks for health care companies as needed
  • Managing the health records of multiple patients

Those are a few of what may be many tasks that work from home nurses need to perform each day. The specific tasks will vary according to medical facilities and individual needs of each patient.

Work from Home Nursing Job Education Requirements

Work from home nursing jobs require the nurse to be accredited just like any other professional nursing job would require. Candidates should acquire at least a bachelor’s degree in nursing in order to be competitive for the most desirable nursing positions. One can get licensed after earning an associate’s degree in nursing or an approved diploma from an accredited nursing program. If it’s possible to get a higher degree, it’s a good idea to do so. It’s a good idea to complete an internship program and pursue on-the-job training before pursuing work from home nursing jobs.

All work from home nurses must earn a nursing license. In addition to achieving a degree, a candidate must also pass the National Council Licensure Examination. Candidates who prefer working around fellow nurses on a regular basis may also want to consider medical office nurse jobs and advanced practice nurse jobs.

Work from Home Nursing Job Market

According to estimations from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be a growth of 19 percent in all nursing jobs between 2012 and 2022. That includes work from home nursing jobs as well as all others. As technology increases and it becomes easier to accurately complete many nursing duties remotely, there will likely be an even greater increase in demand for work from home nurses. That is more than the average growth for most other occupations.

Work from Home Nursing Job Salary Information

Work from home nurses who performed home health care services earned an average annual salary of $62,090 in 2012. That’s about on course for most other types of nursing jobs because the median annual salary for all registered nurses was around $65,000 for 2012. Nurses who have a bachelor’s or master’s degree as well as extensive experience will be able to command higher salaries.
