Questions on travel nursing
Q:
Does any agency pay traveling nurses as indepentant contractor and wages are reported on 1099 instead of W-2.

A:
I do not know the answer to this but am going to poll my customers and find out. I\'ll let you know. My strong suspicion is that the answer is no. My understanding of the independent contractors laws would preclude one being an IC if they were told when and where to work. The inherent scheduling requirements involved in nursing probably would throw that option out. I\'ll ask around.
