Finding a Niche

Today, Cook is working as a telephonic nurse case manager for UnitedHealth Group in Chicago.

“Nursing is a profession with a zillion niches,” she says. “There is a nursing job to fit every nurse’s unique situation and skill set.”

Cook notes that United hires a fair number of nurses with disabilities and is willing to make accommodation for employees.

“Many of us work from home after in-house training, and working from home does not preclude advancement within the company,” she says.
