          Hi jello3211, welcome to our community!  You've asked a great question that you can find some answers about by visiting the U.S. Small Business Administration website.  They have quite a few great guides and articles regarding how to write contracts, and the importance of writing a contract correctly.  You might like to start by reading this article: www.sba.gov/blogs/contract-law-how-create-legally-binding-contract, and then browse the related links.

           

          I know that our helpful members will also be able to give you some great advice as well. 

           

          Best of luck in your business!

                  Hi jello,  as our population ages, more and more health care professionals will be needed, and that also means finding contracts to provide the services.  As you've stated the process of finding health care contracts, as well as actually writing and landing a contract can be frustrating, to say the least.  Have you joined any of the many healthcare related communities online?  These can be very valuable tools to not only learn the ropes of starting your business, but also to network with others in the same fields.  You might try starting by looking at the forums of your state nursing or medical association, or national forums such as allnurses.com, and become involved in their conversations.

                   

                  I hope you might find these ideas helpful!

                          Hi jello!  One such community that I know of is allnurses.com, but I'm not familiar with any others, although I know they exist.  Are you a member of Linkedin.com?  Linkedin has a wide variety of communities that you may find helpful to join, learn and network from.  You may also find some great groups of health care professionals in your own community on Facebook who may have groups that you can join. 

                           

                          Hopefully some of our helpful community members with experience in the health care field can provide some additional resources for you to learn from, participate in, and enjoy! 

                           

                          Be sure to let me know how the journey is coming along!

                           

                          Cheers!
