Jobs requiring little or no patient care

Whatever the reason, there are a number of job options available to RNs that require little or no direct patient care. One of the following options may be right for you:

  • nurse educators
  • medical writers or editors
  • infection control nursing
  • forensic nursing
  • public policy advisors
  • health insurance case management
  • nurse paralegal
  • nurse informaticists
  • pharmaceutical and medical supply research
