For many nurses, the work day looks like running around a hospital wing, often in panic mode. After, it's not uncommon for the feeling of dread to set in before their next shift at the hospital. While there are many in-person nursing jobs that aren’t like this, remote nursing roles are becoming an increasingly popular option–and one of the best ways to avoid this scenario.
With a remote nursing role, you can perform nursing duties from the comfort of your own home. This means you can say goodbye to the commute and have more control over your work environment.
For many nurses, remote work has led to better work/life balance and mental health. If you’re interested in experiencing the WFH life, consider applying to these remote nursing roles in October 2023.
Are you qualified for remote nursing jobs?
Before you apply for remote nursing roles, make sure you are qualified. For most remote nursing roles, you need to have:
RN experience, including nursing clinicals for more junior roles
Depending on the job, there are also certain certifications and training that can make you more attractive. These include:
RN-BC, board certification in a specialty such as this popular health informatics certification
CTTN for telephone triage nursing
CCM or CMGT-BC for case management roles
CCRP for clinical trial nursing
CCRA for clinical research roles
A NLC compact RN, which lets you work in more than one state
If you don’t have all of these requirements, don’t fret. Other than a nursing license and degree, none are absolutely necessary, and many are easy to learn or obtain before applying to remote nursing roles.
How to find the right role
Being qualified for a role and enjoying a role are two different things–and both should be equally important in your search. While your skill set might qualify you for many remote roles, you’ll most likely be happier in certain roles than in others.
