Thinking of opening a Nursing Registry?

“A nurse registry as defined in 400.462, Florida Statutes (F.S.). is an agency that offers health-care-related contracts for registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, home health aides, companions or homemakers who are paid by fees as independent contractors. The agency is required to be licensed as a nurse registry in order to offer the contracts. Some of the differences between a nurse registry and other types of health-related providers are included below:

  • A nurse registry and a home health agency may provide services that are privately paid for by insurance or other means to patients in their home or place of residence and provide staff to health care facilities, schools or other business entities on a temporary or school year basis.
  • A health care services pool may hire or contract with individuals and assign them to health care facilities to support or supplement the facilities’ workforce in temporary work situations such as employee absences, temporary skill shortages, seasonal workloads, and special assignments and projects but cannot provide private duty staffing or enter into direct contracts with individuals to provide services.
  • A nurse registry and a health care services pool do not qualify for Medicare reimbursements; a home health agency does.”

For more detailed information, check with your State’s Nursing Regulations/Board Departments.
