Because you’ve gone through the nurse training and certification process, nursing and long-term care jobs are best for you.

Naturally, you can find nursing jobs through general caregiving sites like Care.com and TaskRabbit. However, you’ll earn more if you stick to sites that demand the skills that you’ve trained for.

Here are a few sites where you can find well-paid nursing and long-term care jobs:

Nursing and long-term care jobs

ConnectRN hires full and part-time nurses for per-diem shifts that pay from $15 to $45 per hour. Those who work more than 40 hours get time and a half. And, if you stay as a full-time worker for a year, you get employee benefits. The site operates in nine states, primarily on the East Coast.

TrustedHealth is a relatively new technology platform that invites nurses to create a free profile to be connected with temporary nursing positions in short-staffed facilities nationwide. You set your job preferences, including specialty, the hours and locations you prefer. TrustedHealth then matches you to job openings that fit your interests and skills. If you see a job option that looks attractive, you click on “request interview” and go from there.

Unlike ConnectRn, which allows nurses and aides take additional shifts near home, TrustedHealth specializes in travel nursing. This involves taking short-term contracts at far-flung facilities that are short on staff. So many of the job opportunities on this site are full-time and require relocation. You get paid for the inconvenience. The site says nurses earn between $4,000 and $10,000 a month.

These don’t work for you?
