I signed up to work for Kare. It is a staffing agency that helps solve the health care crisis of being short staffed. It is like agency but you are an independent contractor, you work for yourself. You are hired through Kare, to work for Nursing homes, Rehabs, and assisted livings. The facility sets the pay with the bonuses, and I will tell you that they are good bonuses. You get paid the next day after you work a shift in most cases. You do your own taxes, but you can deduct gas, mileage, and uniforms on your taxes. The only downfall is no benefits, but when you make this kind of money you can save more for your retirement. This works for me because my I use my husbands benefits. You can use Kare for a side gig.
How do you start? You first download the Kare app: https://www.doyoukare.com/?type=appDeepLink&type2=referral&inviteId=89622ba1-ae99-4a70-b0ce-e3e41df2001f
Then you upload your CNA and or QMAP license (in other states it is called something else). You upload your CPR Card and drivers license or ID. Then you schedual a short easy phone interview. Then you take a drug tests, and they run a background check. It is easy and straight forward.
Once they approve you, you can apply for shifts in your area. When you are approved you will see how much you can make.
In my area the average pay for a QMAP or CNA is $32.00 an hour and even up to $55.00 per hour in Rehab! No more two dollar an hour more than minimum pay wage pay! Finally, after this back breaking, rewarding work, we are getting paid what we are worth. After all, we are the backbone of healthcare, and the heart beat. They cannot run a facility without good CNA’s and QMAPs.
The company Kare is not available in every state but you can look and see if they are available in your state. https://www.doyoukare.com/for-communities/ Scroll to the bottom.
