I’m a new grad nurse. I have less than a year of being an infusion nurse after graduation. I don’t have any bedside experience and I wanted to start something remote would that be a bad idea. Can I go into bedside afterwards if I want to ? Thanks!

This is definitely a bad idea. You will need some experience in order to assess and educate remotely. Other, you are only going to do a disservice to these people although you may have good intentions.

I would suggest that you get hospital experience in an area you like and your options later down the road
work a few years in an acute setting
Otherwise you won’t have a good resume If you want to do infusion you will be limited to that Experience is your ticket to expand your life experience. I worked 43 years in acute bedside but I also worked in plastic surgery doing laser work and in office now retired but work 2 days a month
