Fast-paced career growth that’s fun.

Travel nurses have a luxury that many envy because they can dodge the dread of feeling stagnant at their job. Few career opportunities present such a fast-paced trajectory upward simply because travel nurses are always on the move growing and learning in a whole host of ways. With each assignment comes a new facility along with a slew of SOPs, people, and responsibilities to navigate.

 

The prospects for a travel nurse are robust especially if you’re interested in broadening your skill set and exploring an alternate healthcare field. Take a welcomed leap over to pediatrics, radiology, or even become a trainer to implement new software. Wherever your career might lead, you can rest assured knowing its meaningfulness will remain constant both to you as a professional and those who receive your care and support.

 

If you want to jumpstart your nursing career in a big way, we’d love to be your launch pad. Learn more about our work with travel nurses around the country.

Paying it forward in a big, little way.

Think back to when you were young. There’s likely an adult who made a lasting impression that you still remember today. Maybe it was an English teacher who made you enjoy picking up a book or a coach who believed in your abilities when you doubted them. A school therapist can be that one person to many, because they help students realize their individual potential while giving them the tools to conquer a variety of challenges.

 

As a contract therapist, you have the golden opportunity to care for our country’s next generation and make a true difference. Contracts range from occupational therapy, psychological and counseling to speech therapy. While needs and teaching environments change, seeing your students flourish and grow to enjoy learning is a constant reward that will never grow old.

Find and Retain Your Superstar Clinicians with an MSP

Contracting with contingent workers can be a complex process. A noteworthy benefit of partnering with an MSP is the time savings and headache avoidance throughout the contracting process. Failing to tackle the mountain of paperwork accurately and in a timely manner can put your organization at risk. Leave the credentialing, compliance and in-depth background checks to an MSP, so you can mitigate your organization’s risk and increase the level of transparency.

Happy staff means a productive team

Vacancies not only impact patient care but without a strong pipeline to fill your openings quickly, your staff’s satisfaction will likely drop in response. On average, it takes 85 days to fill an open healthcare position, according to the American Organization of Nurse Executives. The cost of those 85 days adds up when you consider overtime, inefficiencies, employee burnout, and turnover.

You’d hate to see one of your star clinicians leave because they reached a tipping point that stemmed from a vacant position. The cost of a staffing shortage skyrockets when a quality team member jumps ship.

Consider working with an MSP to save time and money. Let the MSP deal with the operations of third-party contract labor so you can focus on more productive internal items.

Seize adventures like it’s your job. Because it is!

Packing up and moving your life to a different city means adventure is never far behind. Travel nurses have the unique opportunity to change locations about every 13 weeks. And while starting fresh (albeit again and again) is not for everyone, those who detest the dull truly meet their match as a travel nurse.

 

A new contract might take you to a place you didn’t even know existed with fascinating places to explore and get to know. An outdoor concert arena, a Thai fusion restaurant, or a rail-to-trail bike path could be awaiting your arrival. Going to work as a travel nurse means learning the ins and outs on shift while meeting friends and colleagues for the first time. You just never know who or what might cross your unchartered path.

Basics of Being a School Therapist

Do you remember the buzzing excitement of back-to-school? As a school contract therapist, you can enjoy that energy on repeat each year. The start of the school year means a different group of students to help and possibly a new school if you’re embarking on a new contract.

 

Every school is its own little world. And you can pick which little ecosystem you want to join when you choose the flexibility of being a contract therapist. Schools generally have needs for psychologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists and physical therapists. It is important to know specific licensure and certification requirements as they vary by state and profession.

 

When you choose a contract therapist position, you can see the country, visit with family and friends you miss, vacation, and gain a lifetime of new experiences. Find out what school districts top the country’s best list and see what the current landscape looks like for you, today.
