How to Become a Remote Nurse Practitioner in Colorado
As Colorado's population continues to age, the state's opportunities for virtual care positions will expand in kind. That goes for whether you reside in Denver, one of its suburbs like Littleton, or another major city like Aurora or Colorado Springs.
If you want to become a remote nurse practitioner (also referred to as a telemedicine nurse practitioner) or work-at-home nurse practitioner, there are plenty of full-time and part-time remote work opportunities available in Colorado.
Keep the following information in mind as you apply:
Work-from-home nurse practitioner or remote nurse practitioner: If you’ve ever wanted to work at a healthcare facility or practice outside your immediate area, a role as a remote nurse practitioner may provide that opportunity. Although you will primarily work at home, make sure to check the job description for any necessary on-site duties at the care provider’s facility.
Additional training: As a remote NP, you have the same standard of patient care as you would for in-person care. Telemedicine companies often provide training to educate clinicians on how to use relevant technology and platforms, as well as best practices for good bedside manner. You may also be required to take employment-specific training to help you understand the protocols and best practices.
Necessary documentation: Make sure you keep your resume and career documentation handy so they’re readily available for prospective or current employers.
Telehealth companies often post open positions on job posting sites like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn, so this is a great place to start your job search for virtual care opportunities.
