Some work-at-home jobs for nurses include case management, nurse advocate, nurse blogger and insurance company nurse. Other options medical transcription and providing telehealth services to patients.
Case management nurses work with patients who need extra help managing their health care. Some duties of this job include discussing treatment options with doctors, making appointments and scheduling treatments such as surgeries. Nurse advocates go deeper than case management nurses, explaining every nuance of treatment and recovery to patients and helping them with everything from understanding their ailments to navigating the insurance process. Nurse bloggers simply share HIPPA-approved information on their websites, helping the general public stay informed concerning important medical topics.
Nurses who work for insurance companies help them do clinical research concerning patient treatment, review medical codes on payment requests from physicians and hospitals, and help develop treatment plans for commonplace illnesses and injuries. Telehealth nurses provide minor medical advice over the phone or the Internet, while medical transcription nurses help hospitals and physicians keep precise and accurate patient records correctly coded for prompt insurance payment.
