Hello...I am a CA R.N. who wants to start a business running flu shot clinics for businesses and the general public but I don't know where to start. Can anyone steer me in the right direction as to where to get the info I need (legalities, licenses needed, MD oversight, etc) so that I can turn my idea into a reality? Any help would be great appreciated...Thank you.
I would reach out to your State's Board of Nursing. They should have information for you on how to get started or where to go to get started. You can view a list of State Board of Nursing contact information here: http://ce.nurse.com/RStateReqmnt.aspx
Well I never tried for that but I appreciate your work.
Have you ever heard of Mollen Immunization Clinics? They're now supplying nurses with serum and materials so that they can set up their own clinics (read: build their own business) and work for themselves. The nurses are independent contractors. They've partnered with an insurance group called CM&F and malpractice/liability insurance is usually $100 a year or less. They also do not charge you for the inventory- so you really are only just paying for your phone bill and your internet bill to market yourself. You're already licensed as a professional, you don't need an LLC, and you can get insurance on the cheap. What other great way to test the waters of having your own immunization business?
