When considering taking a locum tenens assignment, there are a few details you must know before making a final decision. The location is only one factor, and speaking to your locum tenens recruiter to gain insight into the other details can help ensure you are properly prepared. Here are the six most important details to review with your recruiter about a potential locum tenens assignment:
Our nation’s veterans served and sacrificed to protect our freedom. Now they deserve high-quality care, and the Veterans Health Administration provides that to millions of veterans each year.
Nurse Practitioners Week kicked off this week to give recognition and credit to not only NPs who have been on the front lines of the pandemic but those who have given everything they've got to provide compassionate, high-quality healthcare to their patients.
Today, many physicians and advanced practitioners are feeling drained and in need of a change. Unpredictable schedules and extended hours for consecutive days without time off can leave essential providers at a physical and mental disadvantage. Positions that offer more autonomy can seem impossible to come by and like more of a dream than reality.
A growing number of medical professionals are working locum tenens because of the many benefits it brings. Physicians choose locum tenens as a career path to travel to desirable destinations, give back to rural communities in need, and support our nation’s veterans by delivering excellent healthcare, to name a few. However, as more professionals become interested in locum tenens because of their advantages, it’s also important to know what to expect to determine if working locum tenens is right for you.
You love what you do for a job, but there are days when you wonder if you could be doing more. You're not necessarily looking for a career overhaul but wouldn't mind changing things up a bit. At this stage, a bit of travel would not be a bad thing.
When searching for the perfect assignment, choosing the right contingent staffing partner is essential. To make the best-educated decision, it's critical to know what to look for in the agency. Here are our suggestions on the top things to look for in the staffing partner:
In 2019, 85% of healthcare provider groups used locum tenens physicians. With increased patient demand and the American healthcare system being short, almost 122,000 physicians by 2032, the need for locum tenens physicians is in high demand. This working arrangement offers many benefits, such as increased flexibility and more career options.
Telehealth has seen rapid growth both before and following the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to its convenience, more patients are interested in telehealth for increased access, safety, and efficiency.
Wishing nurse practitioners across the country a happy NP Week! We appreciate your skillful expertise, comprehensive approach to health, and all you do to expand patient-centered, high-quality care for the millions who need it.
Let's say thanks and get to know why nurse practitioners are so crucial to our individual, family, and community health. Here's a snapshot of why we acknowledge and honor NPs this week:
