How to Become a Remote Nurse Practitioner in Arkansas

Burnout, staffing shortages, and the Delta variant of COVID-19 have led to a shortage of remote nurse practitioners in Arkansas. As a result, there are many full-time and part-time remote work opportunities available for NPs in Little Rock, Fayetteville, Fort Smith, and other parts of the state.

If you’re interested in becoming a remote nurse practitioner (also known as a telemedicine nurse practitioner), keep the following information in mind as you apply:

  • Work-from-home nurse practitioner or remote nurse practitioner: As a remote NP, you can live anywhere in the state while you work for a healthcare provider or facility, collaborate with staff, and provide patient care. Some providers may require some on-site hours, so be sure to check for that requirement as you fill out applications.

  • Additional training: Nurses and other healthcare professionals routinely take extra training and in-service education classes. This includes COVID training and best practices for immunization, as well as learning proper webside manner.

  • Necessary documentation: You never know when you’ll need to confirm your licensure and credentials. Always keep your resume and other professional documentation updated and readily available.
