Nurses on Call
Registered nurses who don’t want to work in traditional hospital settings or doctors’ offices—or who want to supplement their income–can put their knowledge to work at home. Several companies, such as www.fonemed.com and www.mckesson.com, hire nurses to provide phone-based triage and advice to callers requesting information on medical conditions and reactions to medication. Home-based nurses can also provide sound advice to patients on disease management and health care options so they’re armed with information to make the best decisions about their care.
You can also check with a medical center in your area to ask if they hire or contract with home-based nurses to provide similar triage and advice phone services.
You must use caution when visiting these sites. Even though they contain a lot of legitimate information, they also lead to links to stuff that’s not legit. Be cautious about the sites and the ads you see and NEVER respond to check-cashing, wire transfer or Western Union related offers.
