I have been an RN for over 8 years now with a palliative, hospice nursing management, wound care treatment and pediatric psyc backgound. This is a second career for me and I have also maintained an updated teaching license from my first career. I have a Master's degree in Adult Education as well. I would like to start working as an independent contractor nurse. I do not want to work for an agency because I have heard too may bad things about them. What do I need to do to get this part of my career started? I have read that a license, malpractice insurance and bonding insurance is needed, but is that all? Are there any requirements that states require beyond an active, unencumbered license? (I live in Ohio).Any advice would be great. Thanks!
