Hello! I am not certain what you need. Do you want to earn money, retain interest in nursing, open your home to others in need of private nursing care, or... what? Please do not tell me "what," OK? How about returning to school? There are quite a few online programs for RN to BSN and BSN to MSN. Indiana Wesleyan University has a well-regarded nursing program (a little shameless promotion here!).

Waiting to hear and cheering you on,

Joy

I wondered about this, too, when I decreased my hours at work. What could I do from home as a nurse?

I don't think there's much. You could learn to be a transcriptionist. I think some nurses may do some insurance adjusting or something from home? Maybe some make follow up calls to patients. It's been awhile since I looked in to it, but I'd still be interested in doing something nursey from home. Maybe someone else will chime in with some suggestions.

Oh my! I was going to say the same thing, only I was going to plug the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay - that is where I'm doing my online BSN!

A nurse could make good money doing transcription - not exactly nursing, but a way to make money at home and utilizing your knowledge of medical technology!

I've become a freelance writer. Nursing Spectrum and Advance for Nurses are always looking for good writers who have fresh ideas. It doesn't pay much, but it's a great way to expand your horizons.

I am embarrassed that I did not think of that!

Default One idea...

One idea that comes to mind is working a "nurse line" for one of the various insurance companies...

One of the nurses I work with used to work for a pediatric nurse help line. They required a separate phone number, and when you were "on", they just rolled the calls to your number... She had a huge book to use as a reference, and a list of various places she could refer people to..

Just an "at home" thought..

Now, I did telephone advice for pediatrics, but in an office - how would I get hooked up to do that at home?

There's a growing trend in some areas for tele-health. A pt has a monitor set up in their home. At a designated time they hook up to it for bp, pulse, wt and answer pre programmed questions. A nurse is needed to monitor/track the information and send out a home health nurse if the pt needs assessing. Our agency is looking into this, and the monitoring nurse can work from home. Just a thought.

I can hardly keep up with all these new advances in telecommunications. Boy, do I feel old.
