A freelance Nurse is an Independent Nurse Contractor.
A License Professional who practices outside the traditional role of an employee. As an alternative the Nurse elects to work as an independent contractor.
You will set the terms of your services limited only by need and your ability to negotiate.
A Freelance RN can contract his or her nursing services directly with a Healthcare Facility as an outsource specialty consultant (not as a regular staff RN in a Department) or directly hired by a private paying patient to continue bedside practice and in some cases the Freelance RN may also earn the Medicare/Medicaid Accreditation (more complicated --- but can be done).
Contractual agreement is drawn up between you and the institution or the private paying client. You will be able to negotiate your compensation, hours worked and length of time your services will be needed.
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.
Freelance Nurses contract their nursing services out to a huge assortment of fields in the Healthcare Industry such as the Home Health Agency, Nursing Homes, Hospitals, Rehab Centers and Doctors Offices just to name a few.
They may elect to practice as Sole Proprietors, Limited Liability Company or with others in a group using a variety of legal entities. These could include public corporations, partnerships, or other structures that professionals commonly use such as a common term "registrars". It is actually something that many nurses have been doing all along.
Think about it, when you work for an agency you are doing the same thing except now you are eliminating the middle man.
As the owner of your own company/small business entity , you can enjoy all the benefits without somebody (middleman) taking the big chunk of revenue that you work hard for, not to mention the tax breaks that business people enjoy.
