Work At Home Business Idea For Registered Nurses
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Being a Registered Nurse is a career that can take a lot of your time and energy. When you have a family (especially young children) or become disabled for various reason, a career in nursing can become hard to deal with. Some nurses just get burnt out dealing with all the politics of their place of employment. Other nurses get to the point where they just cannot take anymore direct patient care. When any of these happen, those nurses tend to start looking for a change in career or other options in nursing. One option would be to stay in nursing but to think about starting a home business in which you can continue to use your nursing degree. Here are a few work at home business ideas for registered nurses.

Health Writer

Many blogs, websites and other publications are often looking for health writers to give accurate information about various health issues. RN's can become freelance writers and contract with various companies to write this health information. It is also possible to find jobs in which you write courses for online nursing schools.

Private Duty Nurse

Another popular home business idea for registered nurses is private duty nursing. You would not necessarily be working at your own home but would be able to be more flexible with your hours if you contracted yourself out and were not actually employed by an agency. In private duty nursing, you may be taking care of an elderly person in their home by helping them to keep to an appropriate medication schedule or with things such as insulin injections, dressing changes, etc. Another area would be as a maternity private duty nurse helping a high risk antepartum mom or even a brand new mom with her baby and own health. Many private duty nurses also work for pediatric patients who have had serious injuries or chronic illnesses.

Daycare for Sick Children

Many parents face a dilemma when their child gets ill, especially when that illness lasts more than a couple of days. They need to go back to work and their daycare or school won't allow them back either due to contagiousness or the seriousness of the illness with staff that are unable to care for the sick child. RN's can start a business either in their own home or go to the home of the sick child and care for them while their parents work.

Medical Transcriptionist

As a nurse you have the medical terminology knowledge needed to become a medical transcriptionist. You may want to take some classes in order to get the best jobs and learn how to do this as fast and efficient as possible. However, this is a job you can do from home either as an employee of a transcription company or as a contractor working for yourself. This work at home business idea for registered nurses is an area that truly gets you away from direct patient care if that is what you are hoping to avoid. The main idea behind medical transcription is to type out reports that doctors dictate.

In closing, these are just a few ideas but there are many more work at home business ideas for registered nurses. The main thing you need to do is to decide where your strengths lie, what type of business you want to do and what will work well with you lifestyle and family.
