An independent RN contractor is a great way to renew your interest and rejuvenate your nursing career. This is a good professional to embark on if you’re burnt out after the daily grind of being a nurse at your hospital. As an independent nurse contractor you can have more freedom. You can choose when, where and how you work.

Here’s how an independent nurse contractor works. You contract with a healthcare facility or with a patient directly to provide nursing services. Therefore you won’t be working at a hospital as just another nurse. Nurse contractors can practice in all aspects of the health industry, from home health to nursing homes to rehab centers. You don’t need an advanced degree either to get started. You can’t however start your own business as an independent nurse contractor, as stated in the nurse practice act.
