Work-from-Home Jobs for Virtual Nurses
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:
Home based positions require years of experience in the target area of expertise with a solid clinical background. Home based nurses are typically highly experienced, well trained experts in their respective clinical fields with excellent communication and time management nursing skill sets.
Working at home may not be an ideal scenario for every nurse. Being away from the hospital requires mental preparation as you begin your life outside of the clinical environment. “Virtual Nursing” lacks the daily team and social aspects of having co-workers within close proximity. Office parties and holiday gatherings are a thing of the past in the “virtual world”. Having lunch with a co-worker is virtually non-existent.
Working from home also keeps you in the same environment with your household chores, husbands, wives and children. In addition to greater time-management skills, the ability to set boundaries between work and family is also critical in maintaining work-life balance.
When considering changing your nursing career to a “work from home” or “virtual nurse” option, considering the pro’s and the con’s will help you decide which opportunity best suits your personality, family and lifestyle.
