Self-employed nursing professionals


Self-employed (often also "freelance") nursing professionals are federally recognized health professionals who offer general, psychiatric, paediatric, palliative, wound or postnatal care to clients at home. Some 1,015 (Federal Statistical Office (BFS), as at 2017, in French and German only) nursing professionals work on a freelance basis in Switzerland and therefore form an important part of healthcare provision.
