A hospital executive would feel more comfortable contracting a nurse from an agency dedicated to temporary medical staffing than from a one-stop-shop that also places welders, janitors and filing clerks. Nurse Contractors practice in all aspects of the Healthcare Industry; Home Health, Nursing Homes, Nursing Agencies, Hospitals, Rehab Centers and Doctors Offices, all aspects of Nurse Consulting just to name a few. No advance degrees are necessary unless your business includes diagnosing and treating medical problems.

Healthcare is one of the fastest growing sectors of business in the country. As the shortage of qualified nurses becomes more pronounced, the need for Nursing Registries is growing faster then ever. Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Clinics, and doctorsÂ’ offices are looking for alternatives to their staffing needs, and with the ever-increasing nursing shortage, you have the opportunity to start a successful business with limitless possibilities.

The contract is similar to those used by nursing agencies and travel companies outlining the services to be provided, the responsibilities of both the healthcare facility and the nurse, and the length of time the services are to be provided. An independent nurse contractor contracts with a healthcare facility to provide nursing services while a nursing agency is an agency that provides nursing services to private individuals and healthcare facilities on a contractual basis.

An Independent contractor can contract his or her nursing services directly with a healthcare facility or with a patient and continue bedside practice. State nurse practice acts do no prohibit a nurse from starting up their own business as an Independent Nurse Contractor. Independent nurse contractor is one who contracts with a healthcare facility for nursing services.

A contractual agreement is drawn up between you and the institution. You will be able to negotiate your compensation, hours worked and length of time your services will be needed.
