Work from Home Options for Nurses Who Have Kids

Posted by


Work schedules for nurses can be pretty daunting, which might lead you to wonder: Can I still work as a nurse when I become a mom? The answer is, of course, a big resounding “Yes!”.

Particularly for nurse-moms of newborns, the need to want to stay home and care for their child would be expected. Fortunately, there are now ways for these nurses to continue to work as nurses even while staying at home. Thanks to the advancements in technology that spilled over to the healthcare industry, an increasing number of nurses are now able to work flexible or alternative schedules as well as work as nurses from home.

Check out this list of nursing jobs that nurses who are mothers can do from the comforts of their respective homes:

1. Insurance Company Nurse

Nurses who work for insurance companies may be asked to perform a variety of tasks that range from case management, to doing clinical research and insurance auditing. Some aspects of this job can be worked on from home, although insurance companies may require its applicants to have at least a few years of relevant experience in healthcare settings before they can be considered for the job, though.

2. Nurse Case Manager

This job has nurses creating the best plan of care for their patients. Essentially, nurse case managers have the job of seeing to it that the patient is receiving proper care to keep them as healthy as they possibly can. A case manager who works from home may find himself spending a lot of time with the patient over the phone, discussing his care plan and other health issues, as well as with other care providers in order to coordinate and facilitate the care plan created for the patient.

3. Medical Transcription

This occupation has nurses listening to audio recordings by doctors and health care professions and transcribing them into copies that can serve as medical reports or other administrative documents. This type of job is far less demanding than hospital work, and is perfect for new moms or those nurses who have small children, as they can work on transcribing recordings at their own time. If you have a fast typing speed, you may want to consider this type of work at home job.

4. Nurse Advocate

To put it simply, nurse advocates serve as the patient’s partner throughout the entire health crisis. They provide treatment options and health education, as well as assist patients with their insurance issues. A good nurse advocate is one who is very familiar with the healthcare system, and possesses the desire to aid patients and their families in choosing the best well-informed decision for treatment and recovery.

By working from home, you’ll not only get to spend more time with your family, you also do away with all the preparations needed when working as a hospital nurse, such as wearing the required uniform and your nursing pin. Working from home can be the best solution for nurses who have small children to attend to, as it allows the nurse to spend more time with the family while still being able to do work in the nursing industry.
