Requirements for Remote Nurse Practitioners in Arizona
Are you an aspiring remote nurse practitioner living in or moving to Arizona? You must meet the following requirements to practice as an NP in this state:

To prescribe and dispense medications, you must complete a three-credit graduate-level pharmacology course.
Experience: Those who complete an advanced nursing education program more than five years prior to applying for licensure must show they have completed 960 hours of advanced practice nursing in that same timeframe.
Certification: Prospective nurse practitioners must receive National Certification.

Application Fee: $150.00 (required)
Fingerprint Fee: $ 50.00 (required)
Temporary Certification Fee: $ 35.00 (optional)
Prescribing and Dispensing Fee: $150.00 (optional)
Your necessary fieldwork, degrees, fees, and examinations may vary depending on the selected specialization. These include (but are not limited to) primary care nurse practitioner, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP), family nurse practitioner (FNP), and acute care nurse practitioner.
How to Become a Remote Nurse Practitioner in Arizona
With more than 2,600 healthcare facilities and an aging population, Arizona nurse practitioners are in high demand. Whether you reside in Scottsdale, Mesa, or Phoenix and its suburbs like Chandler, there are many full-time and part-time remote work opportunities available to you.
If you want to work as a remote nurse practitioner (also called telemedicine or telework nurse practitioners), it’s important to keep the following information in mind as you apply:
Remote or work-from-home nurse practitioner: As a remote employee, you can work for medical centers and health care providers in other parts of the state. Your work may include collaboration with other medical professionals, patient counseling, and medical record review. When you seek this type of work, be sure to understand if it requires on-site medical care or other tasks.
Additional training: Although nurse practitioners are highly regarded medical professionals, they will likely take extra training provided by their employers. That education may include particulars on in-house technology, institutional best practices and other employer specifics.
Necessary documentation: Most prospective employers look for the same basic documentation that confirms your education, certifications, and licensure. It’s always a good idea to keep that and other documentation handy so you can efficiently apply for relevant jobs.
You can often find open telehealth positions companies job posting sites like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn. These are great places to start looking for virtual care opportunities. Wheel matches clinicians with virtual care opportunities and has a variety of positions available for NPs in Arizona.
