    Independent RN Contractor

    Hello fellow nurses!! I am so glad to hear that more and more nurses are becoming aware of this great new industry for nurses.
    We as a group are tired of being told how much our services are worth. The economy is ripe for the nurse entrepreneur. Why wait? The nursing shortage is just beginning and there doesn’t appear to be a quick fix in the near future. Much of the nursing workforce is coming up on retirement time, which is only going to compound the lack of skilled nurses to deal with the oncoming baby-boomers.

    There is no better feeling than to own your own business. Nurses will enjoy not only increased wages but also an increased feeling of self-respect. Nurses are the perfect business owners. They have the communication skills and the ability as assess, implement and organize a plan. These are the same criteria that any business owner uses. We as nurses use this system everyday of our nursing careers. An independent nurse contractor is one who contracts with a healthcare facility for nursing services. You will be able to negotiate your compensation, hours worked and length of time your services will be needed. This could be the change you have diligently been looking for. Good Luck!!

    Re: Independent RN Contractor


    My name's Andrew, owner of, I've run a nursing website since 1997 and dabbled in Nursing Agencies, Network Marketing and slew of other businesses.

    My website is set up as a C-corporation in the state of New Jersey and I can answer most basic questions, won't charge anything to answer questions posted in this forum.

    If you're interested in Starting your own Nursing Agency or working as an Independent Contractor, you'll need to learn:

    1. How to set up and run a business in general. That means setting up your books, your office, payroll, and billing. Items any business will need to deal with.

    For assistance, you can visit:

    The Small Business Administration:

    They're funded by the Government for the sole purpose of helping you get your business off the ground.


    2. You'll need to learn about the Temporary Staffing Industry. A bank will look at you like you've got two heads if you tell them you want to start a registry or nursing agency. It's jargon to them.

    The appropriate business term is Temporary Staffing Agency, to hospitals, nursing homes, etc.

    A good book on the topic is: "How to Start a Temporary Staffing Service," published by Entrepreneur Magazine and recommended by the Small Business Association.

    I'd start with 1 and 2 if you're thinking about a staffing business. Any other questions on marketing, contracts, insurance, etc. try me.
