I am a RN in Ohio. I have worked as a travel nurse in Ohio. Can I be an independent private duty nurse paid by my father in Florida to care for my mother? They would save money since they are now hiring 24 hour a day caregivers. I would make enough to pay the bills in Ohio, especially if I could deduct travel expenses. I am flying back and forth to help out, and not able to work on a regular basis. I am in the process of getting my Florida RN license.
