Job Duties

You may have already guessed that job duties will include receiving triage calls from people who are requesting information on a variety of medical situations.

You will need a corded phone and a headset; one suggestion, make sure that the corded phone that you purchase has a headset jack! Click here to view a few examples.

As I noted above, these are the nurses that answer the phone when you call your doctor's office after hours or on the weekend.

Because, of this, many of the calls may be pediatric calls, although there may be other calls coming in about medication doses or medical conditions.

The hours that are available are mostly evening and weekend hours.
