MAUMEE, Ohio, Oct. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- NurseNow Staffing is pleased to announce certification as a Service-disabled Veteran-owned Small Business (SDVOSB). The staffing agency, which specializes in providing nurse staffing for decentralized clinical trials, was founded and is led by a nurse who started his 30-year healthcare career as a Navy hospital corpsman.
"This is significant for me, as I've always had care at the center of what I wanted to do," says David Kissinger, RN, CEO of NurseNow Staffing. "In the military, as a hospital corpsman, I was able to care for people who were on active duty. Now, with this SDVOSB designation, I have a greater opportunity to expand that care to veterans."
According to the Small Business Association (SBA), a business must meet the following requirements to qualify for SDVOSB certification:
- Be a small business.
- Be at least 51% owned and controlled by one or more service-disabled veterans.
- Have one or more service-disabled veterans manage day-to-day operations and also make long-term decisions.
- Eligible veterans must have a service-connected disability.
Only 10% of all businesses are owned by veterans, and fewer than that carry the SDVOSB certification. The designation will allow NurseNow Staffing to be more competitive for federal contracts, including services for hospitals, long-term care centers and clinics that serve veterans.
"I am so grateful to be able to continue a legacy of caring—especially for people who have made great sacrifices," says Kissinger. "It is a great continuation of my life's work, and a true honor."
