I have a side job working for a lady that owns her own company that basically provides nurses to an ambulance company and they run "Critical Care Transports" where they pick up sick patients from clinics and bring them to specific hospital ERs or inpatient rooms. The ambulance company provides the ambulance, EMTs, iPad for charting. She (the business owner of the nursing company) provides the supplies/medications and the calls/runs for a group of about 30 nurses. As a nurse, I basically give her my schedule and then go to the ambulance station, check out my supplies, and then get calls from their dispatch to meet an ambulance crew somewhere where they pick me up and then we go to a clinic or hospital to pick up a patient and bring them to another hospital. All the jobs are for a large hospital organization, which she (the nurse business owner) has the contract for.

I keep track of all the calls I do and at the end of the month I send her a list of calls, and she pays me as a 1099 employee.

She mentioned that we needed to file our business certificate required by the city (San Diego). Some of the nurses are incorporated or have an LLC.

I'm curious if this is required/needed? I hold malpractice insurance. I report my income and pay taxes to the IRS. Do I need to incorporate as well for any reason?

No, if you have adequate insurance. But having a LLC (& an EIN) would allow you to hide your SSN; you use the EIN instead.
