Well I've been accepted as a vendor at one of the hospitals here in Atlanta. According to the person that I talked to, the contracts will be mailed out at the end of the year and if I agree to the terms, I will be considered a working vendor. I have to wait until the end of the year because that is when their fiscal year ends and the new contracts are signed. But it's a done deal on their part, it is up to me to decide if I want in or not. Woo-hoo!

Ha Ha.. Micke.. It is a term the facilities often use to refer to those businesses who have contracts to utilize nonhospital employees such as PRN Nurses or Travel Nurses.
I am now attempting to become a vendor at some facilities... My business entity will then pay me my salary... That way, among other reasons, I get more tax break and have more control... and when I say my boss is riding me too hard.. well....

I just registered my corp. I have not declared what type with the IRS yet.. It looks like an S Corp will work best for my situation.
Been dabling with the CPR but no income yet. I did a volounteer project this week at my sons school. I hope to get that going sometime in the next few months (as far as an income of sorts).
The per diem thing seems to take up a lot of my energy. I am trying to contract with facilities in my area and there are lots to choose from in reasonable driving distance.
How you doing Micke?
