If you want to provide care for elderly and infirm patients and you have nurse training and certifications, you’ll earn most by focusing on nursing and long-term care jobs.

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

Care.com is one of the oldest and largest caregiver matching services. However, it requires caregivers to pay a membership fee to communicate with clients. The fee is just $24 for six months. So it shouldn’t discourage you from using this site, which has far and away the most job options. But cancel your membership when you’re not using it. Automatically renewed memberships are the biggest complaint we see about this site. (Click here to sign up with Care.com)

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 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. TrustedHealth specializes in travel nursing. So many of the job opportunities on this site are full-time and require relocation. You get paid well for the inconvenience, though. The site says nurses earn between $4,000 and $10,000 a month.

These don’t work for you?
