    The CRNAs at my hospital are all independent contractors. There are 8 that I know of personally. They consider themselves as a small business, something to do with filing paper work that makes an LLC or something. In any case they have to file for taxes quarterly but they all share the same accountant. In any case the CRNAs get to use a lot of those corporate loop holes and end up making more money than if they were a regular employee.

    I asked about how complicated filing for taxes must be, and they all told me the accountant handles all that. All they do is turn in paperwork. I wouldn't mind having that level of autonomy. The idea of being my own boss has always intrigued me.

    Agencies do exactly the same. They offload accounting, payroll, housing, and even recruiting!

    What does "offload accounting" mean?

    Hire someone else to do it rather than do it in-house.

    Ned, I am in the process of starting my own contracts (after 17 years of traveling). You seem to have a real grasp of the necessary details, so I wanted to ask you where I can find agency/client rates for various states and cities. I am in Southern California, but I also need rates for Florida (the traveler's home away from home, lol). Any advice appreciated, feel free to PM me (I cant PM you yet, Im too "new")....thanks!

    Rates vary depending on lots of stuff. No lists. But all you have to do is ask. Staffing people are always happy to tell you what they want to pay for a profiled nurse. Depending on stuff, you can accept or use their first number (usually an average of what they are paying other agencies) as a starting point. Hot specialties, need, and the traveler profile may adjust the number.
