There are plenty of high-quality full-time and part-time remote work opportunities in Washington state for licensed nurse practitioners, from Seattle to Everett, and Redmond to Tacoma.
If you want to work in telemedicine as a nurse practitioner in Washington state, you are required to take telemedicine training. However, that training is unnecessary for those who want to practice telephone triage.
Keep this in mind as you move forward in your career as a telemedicine nurse practitioner:
Working as a nurse practitioner from home: Hospitals, clinics, physicians’ practices, and health centers often need nurse practitioners who can work from home. These roles may include some on-site work and patient care, too, where you visit the health care provider’s facility for a specified number of hours.
Additional training: Nurse practitioners who work in telemedicine in Washington state must complete additional training. The company you work for may also provide their own training for technology and in-house protocols as well as bedside manner.
Necessary documentation: Keep all of your needed documents in one secure place so they’re handy (and safe) when you are ready to apply.
Telehealth companies often post open positions on job posting sites like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn. These are all great places to start looking for virtual care opportunities.
