Besides the advantages of saying goodbye to a commute and well, being home :-), these positions are usually a lot less stressful.
And the salaries are often very competitive with more traditional nursing jobs.
In fact as a triage nurse working for McKesson (answering calls and making calls to patients regarding medical conditions, illnesses and assiting those with chronic medical conditions) a full time position pays in the 50 thousand dollar a year range.
McKesson, Intellicare and United Healthcare are three large companies that offer RN jobs from home involving telephone triage nursing.
Case Management is another work from home RN job that’s growing. Intracorp, which is a division of Cigna along with Bunch & Associates are two companies that hire RN’s that want to work from home.
Medical transcription, Billing and Coding is another home nursing job that’s growing. You’d be transcribing physicians and other healthcare related professionals voicemails etc. into various reports and other documents.
Spheris and MedQuist offer medical transcription work at home for nurses while Career Step and Education to Go have online courses for medical transcription.
Another option for a home nursing job is to work as a Legal Nurse Consultant. Law firms and insurance companies seek the expertise and knowledge that an RN has in regards to workmans comp cases, personal injury etc.
For more information about becoming a legal nurse consutant, check out the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants (AALNC) web site.

My Favorite RN Job From Home
If you’ve spent any time on this blog, it’s probably obvious my own “RN job from home” is a little bit different than what you’ve been reading about so far.
To be honest there are advantages and disadvantages…
But first, what exactly do I do?
Basically, I have a unique way to sell products online from little blogs just like this one.
I don’t sell my own products but other company’s products where I get a commission.
It’s called affiliate marketing. And no one does it the way I do it.
With the products I sell I make anywhere from about $30 or so per sale to over $1000 per sale. They can be health related which is a good fit if you’re a nurse or they can be completely unrelated.
I do both.
OK, what’s the downside?
If you’ve never done this before it takes a few weeks to learn how to set up a blog, get some good content on it and start getting people to your blog.
Almost everyone that tries this does it wrong and that’s why they fail.
It also takes a different mind set than that of an employee. You don’t get paid by the hour.
You’re now an entrepreneur and your success is completely up to you.
And the upside?
I’d have to say freedom and income potential. You can work as much or as little as you want and once the money starts to come in, it actually gets easier and easier.
Then you can decide to quit nursing altogether or work because you want to.
Ah yes, now that’s a cool option to have.
So, if your dream is to:
- work from home
- completely replace your nurse salary in a few months
- have a lot of fun with the best “no stress” nursing job from home (OK, I’m a little biased)
- and do it in your spare time…
Then this is probably what you’ll want to do next…
