Non-Clinical Nursing Jobs

What comes to mind when you think of non-clinical nursing jobs? For me, I naturally start thinking about the nurses I personally know who work in various non-clinical settings. This includes:

  • Healthcare education and communication companies
  • Independent consulting
  • Managed care organizations
  • Disease management companies
  • Electronic health records
  • Consumer health IT
  • Clinical research
  • Pharma
  • Biotech
  • Medical device companies
  • Legal medicine
  • Public health and epidemiology
  • Government health
  • Professional organizations and societies
  • Healthcare staffing
Wow, the list could go on and on. However, this is just a teaser. The bottom line is that there are countless non-clinical opportunities for nurses who want to leave clinical medicine and do something else.
