Remote jobs available for registered nurses include remote monitoring of vital signs for in-home patients, assessing patient care needs and managing patient caseloads, and clinical home health care coding. Generally, the positions require an active RN license, one year of experience and the ability to use computer software programs.
Working remotely, registered nurses can monitor the vital signs of patients who are at home recovering from illness or injury. Nurses can also determine the type of care patients need, evaluate whether any conditions exist that pose barriers to providing the care, and manage the administration of care. RNs working remotely as home care coders review emergency room documents to ensure patient records comply with prospective payment systems, Medicare and OASIS coding and reimbursement requirements.
