Thread Name: Getting nursing home gigs
Subject: RE: Getting nursing home gigs
That was an interesting story, thanks. I'll be sure to avoid people called Stephanie, just in case.

Some more wonderings:

Are there ways other than the yellow pages to get names of facilities to call? I looked in the yellow pages and there were surprisingly few nursing homes listed - at least half a dozen nursing homes that I happen to know of weren't in there.

Do you think ADs from different facilities talk to each other?

Do you think it's easier to get work as one-person show or as a band?

I think you've mentioned, Genie, that you're not in the union. Do you have a contract that you ask the facilities to sign? Do you leave them an invoice to mail you your pay, or expect it on the spot?

Thanks, Marion
