As a clinician user on the Nursa App, Nursa and the IRS considers you a 1099 independent contractor. This means that you should track your income and document your expenses because the IRS requires you to file taxes on your Nursa earnings each year.
We know filing taxes can be confusing, so here is some basic information and resources to help you navigate the process. Nursa cannot offer tax advice; if you have specific questions, need tax advice, or are unsure about your unique tax situation, we recommend reaching out to a tax professional. The information contained in this guide shall not be considered tax advice.

Q: Does Nursa withhold taxes from my pay?
A: No. When you view shift cards on Nursa and your Nursa paystubs, you see your hourly and total pay without any tax deductions. As an independent contractor, you’re responsible for filing any taxes relevant to your situation and state.
Q: I need a 1099 from a previous year (before 2022). How do I get it?
A: When you verify your W-9 information and finish, you will be able to access 2022 and previous years 1099 within the Nursa App.
