Working remotely as a nurse may have been more of a pipe dream in the past. With technology and the rapidly growing adoption of virtual work in many industries – along with the global pandemic highlighting the critical importance of positions in healthcare – home nursing jobs are far more common than ever.
Remote nurses provide phone support, counseling and follow-up care to patients, and can also work in case management and recruiting. Remote nurses facilitate access to care for elderly and immunocompromised patients, as well as patients who live in rural areas far from health facilities.
