What's an Independent Contractor?
Independent contractors—also known as freelancers—are in control of their own schedules and their own work.

Independent nurses work on a contractual basis, and are not employed directly by a healthcare facility (with the exception of direct hire placement). This allows them the freedom to decide when and where they work, among a variety of other benefits.

Say 'yes' or 'no' to any opportunity.

Pick a schedule that works for you.

Decide your own pay rate.

Work with different people in a variety of different settings.
