I'm a Registered Nurse (RN), but I haven't worked in a hospital in years. I work for a company that gets subcontracted by insurance co's, workers comp and auto mostly, to medically manage their cases.
In English, that translates as: I get to meet people who are hurt at work or in a car accident, attend their doctor's appts with them, and update the insurance co and employer on how they are progressing. When they are recovered and can return to work, I help that to happen, if there are restrictions I make sure the employer sticks to them so the patient doesn;t get hurt all over again by overexerting.
I spend a lot of time on the road and also sitting in doctor's offices. When I am not on an appt, I work from home. This is time to make phone calls and type up reports on the computer. (It is also time to browse the Cat Site..shh..
I like this way better than the hospital. No weekends, no night shifts, no holidays. And I get to know the patients as they recover over weeks or months, as opposed to only seeing them for a day or two in a hospital bed.
