Proper Catagory for a "Private Nurse" in Google My Business

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

I am setting up a Google My Business page for an independent "Private Duty Nurse". I can't seem to get the "Category" section of the page to accept that. Closest I could find is "Home Health Care Service" . This, however, does not seem like a good fit since it covers much more than the service being offered, in fact, it could have adverse legal issues. 

 

Can anyone suggest a better fit?

Hi Ed

Unfortunately Google no longer allows for custom business categories, so pick the one that fits closest to what you do without getting you into legal trouble.
The category is a suggestion to google, and if you have other profiles online that offer more details about what you do, Google will take that into account as part of when it selects your business to display.

Hi @Ed B!

 

Within the last few weeks, Google added "Registered General Nurse" as a category.  Would this be a better fit?
