Did you know that LPNs can work from home?
That’s right! Remote LPN Jobs are becoming more common with improvements in telehealth access and expanding programs for remote monitoring.
As a remote LPN, you will deliver nursing care through digital technology, like telephone, video, and messaging.
Now, a remote nurse will not be treating wounds or pushing medications, but there are a variety of other nursing functions that can be done virtually.
5 Types of Remote LPN Jobs
1. Remote Utilization Management LPN
Job Description: Utilization Managers (UM) help to contain healthcare costs by ensuring services stay within standardized coverage guidelines. If service requests meet all predetermined standards, they are approved. If requests fall outside the allowable limits, they are declined and/or alternative options are recommended. This type of a role does not involve direct patient interaction and might be better for nurses who enjoy solitary tasks of reading, investigating, and decision making.
Schedules: Mostly Full-Time Business Hours (M-F 8-5), Some Part-Time
Salary: ~$50,000-80,000+/yr (note: UM hires both LPN & RN so pay can vary)
Other Job Titles: Utilization Reviewer, Prior Authorization, Appeals, Denials, Concurrent Reviewer, Clinical Reviewer
- Elevance Health
- Cigna / Evicore
- UnitedHealth Group
2. Remote Chronic Care Management (CCM) & Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) LPN
Job Description: Chronic Care Management (CCM) nurses help patients manage their chronic conditions through care coordination and disease education. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) uses technology to collect and transmit live patient health data which is often used alongside CCM.
Schedules: Mostly business hours (M-F 8-5); Flex schedules becoming more available
- TimeDoc Health
- Signallamp Health
3. Remote Data Abstraction LPN
Job Description: Data Abstractors review medical records and pull key information in order to transform unstructured information into usable data. This data is used for quality monitoring, clinical research, and more. Abstraction tends to be one of the most flexible remote nursing jobs, but it does often require direct experience abstracting in clinical registries. Another data abstraction job offered seasonally is Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS).
Schedules: More Part-Time flex opportunities than Full Time

Schedules: More opportunities for After Hours (Nights, Weekends, Holidays)
Other Job Titles: Ambulatory LPN, After Hours LPN, Triage Coordinator, Call Center Nurse
- UnitedHealth Group
- Local Offices and Hospital Systems
5. Remote Health Coach LPN
Job Description: Health Coaches assist patients in reaching their health goals by providing structured support in the form of targeted goal setting and behavior modification. Health Coach positions do not always require a nursing license, but due to their expert knowledge in health and patient education, companies often prefer nurses in these roles. If you are serious about Health Coaching, look into Health Coach certification as many companies require this even if you are a nurse.
Schedules: Mostly Full Time Business Hours (M-F 8-5); Some flexible schedules
- UnitedHealth Group
- CVS Health
