what’s up guys I’m nurse Blake and welcome to my channel in this video I’m gonna share with you the different nursing opportunities beyond the bedside so there are so many different jobs out there for nurses and a lot of times when we think about nursing and nursing jobs we think about Hospital jobs at the bedside these are typically three 12-hour shifts but if bedside nursing is not for you and that’s okay there are plenty of other options now there’s so many great opportunities that I’m not going to be able to cover every single one of them so if there’s something I didn’t mention make sure you drop that in the comments below and let us know what that job is so other people can learn about it number one case management these are nurses who act as social workers so they do participate in the patient experience from a mission to discharge and really they’re connecting the patient with outside resources they’re communicating with the healthcare team on the

discharge plan and they’re really the facilitator this is mostly a job in the hospital but you can also find this job in the community-based setting as well so clinical case manager is such a great experience because you still get to work with patients and be a part of the health care team next we have a research nurses this is such a cool job I know many of my friends have been research nurses and they love it so they help the physician and patients work together on clinical trials so they’re asking patients questionnaires they’re researching different medications and procedures and reporting on it so if you’re interested in research and if you are one of those kids in nursing school you love the research component research nurse may be a good fit for you so check it out school nurses I love school nurses you guys have such an interesting job the job of a school nurse is definitely a busy one you never know what’s gonna walk into your clinic and you take care of belly aches to some serious things like allergic reactions

or kids that have seizures and if you’re the only nurse you really have so much autonomy you don’t have physicians like in the hospital around your floor that you can ask questions there are protocols and procedures that you follow but a lot of things that you do are based on your nursing experience and your critical thinking skills what’s great about school nursing is you have off during the summer during the winter and all the major holidays so that’s a really big plus and you don’t have to work the weekends like the bedside nurses do correctional nurses this is in the jail or prison setting and these nurses they work with patients who are in the criminal justice system so their job can be extremely extremely difficult and extremely challenging but what’s most important is as a nurse we care for anybody no matter what their background is because we want everyone to have optimal health if that’s something that interests you go for it check it out research find out more then we have risk management and you could find this physician in the hospital and outside the hospital and what these nurses do is they look at different risks in the hospital like for example

Falls so they attract all the Falls in the hospital and then they work to try to prevent them because we know if a patient Falls it costs the hospital a lot of money not only that it causes a lot of physical and emotional strain on the patient and can lengthen their length of stay or they could even have a worse healthcare outcome than expected because a fall can really set patients back so what risk management does is they look at all the Falls in the hospital and they implement strategies they talk with the healthcare team to really try to prevent these Falls from happening because essentially we want zero Falls in the hospital and they work really hard to get to that goal home health this is where you see patients in their home setting so you don’t see patients in the hospital you actually get to see patients in their home and what’s really unique about this job is you really make your own hours now this isn’t a job for me because between patients you know I would always stop at Starbucks and get a coffee if I saw the target I’d have to pull in and shop a little bit but that’s a benefit about this job I just I would just always be shocked and I’d always be out but if this is something that interests you

it’s a really cool job and there’s just something unique about being able to meet the patient in their home and caring for them in their home a place where they feel safe and comfortable leadership this can be in the hospital or outside the hospital everyone needs a manager or a leader to help lead them in the organization so if you’re interested in the leadership role whether that the assistant manager manager director or it–see and know of a hospital there are opportunities out there now I know the job can be really super stressful but if leadership is something you’re passionate about go for it there’s plenty of opportunity there for you next education you are a nursing school right so you had instructors to teach you we need more instructors because the demand for nurses is really high which means we need a lot of people in nursing school so they become nurses and we need great educators someone who is able to share their talent skills and experience with nursing students to make them great nurses after school so if education is something you’re passionate about look into it because again we need more awesome educators you could even be an HR recruiter a lot of companies and a lot

of hospital systems they look for nurses to be recruiters because from their experience they know what nurses to recruit and what they’re looking for for the hospital typically they’ve been at the hospital a long time they know the culture they know the acuity of the floors and with HR you get the opportunity to interact with new recruits you also get the opportunity and to interact with managers you really find that perfect match it’s kind of like being a matchmaker I guess which can’t be a lot of fun next is forensic nursing this is something that’s really brand new but you may have heard it before like a same nurse what they do is they really focus on sexual assault physical assault and accidental deaths so typically we’re there working for a medical examiner’s office they get extensive knowledge on charting how to chart injuries how to speak with patients that come from abuse and it’s just a really unique in much needed career so if this is something you’re interested in look into it it’s called forensic

nursing and it is a new sector in nursing that is needed so if you’re interested in that go for it check it out and then next we have informatics how would you say it infom additions informatica tician implemented i don’t know but what they do is they really bring their nursing experience science and technology and one and they make it easier to process information because whenever a patient requests medical records you want it to be able to be accessible safe and easy to read so these are what the people and nursing and informatics do they really try their best to make electronic medical records easy safe to protect patients from HIPPA and accessible for everybody organization patient and staff so these are just a brief overview of the different jobs in nursing that are outside of the bedside there’s so many cool

opportunities out there so if you’re ever interested in one of these go for it and I hope I shed light on some new careers that you’ve never heard of before there are so many of them out there so thank you guys so much for watching my name is nurse Blake you could check me out on Instagram and Facebook and find more videos here on my youtube channel make sure you hit the red subscribe button for some more nursing related videos and again I hope this helps you guys out have a great shift
