Spring Into a New Assignment
It’s the season for cleaner closets, the rebirth of yard work and maybe unwelcomed allergies.
But if you’re a travel nurse, Spring might be greeting you with the excitement of a new assignment.
Do you want to swap the small town feel for big city energy? Or maybe you’re itching to trade in the surf for some elevation? A change of season could be well timed to make a shift of your own.
A new assignment as a travel nurse can be ripe with opportunities for career advancement by exposing you to new patient cases, diverse facilities and a whole new city. After all, it’s always the right time to enjoy the freedom and flexibility of creating the life you want. An added bonus is the job security of being a travel nurse with nice financial perks.
Don’t forget that the greatest opportunities often follow the flight of the snowbirds. Soon the warmer temperatures will send the flocks back to their cooler summer nests, making it harder to find as many placements in Southern California, Florida and Arizona. You might want to beat the heat with them and see what the Northern states have to offer. Read about some of the top Northeastern spots here.
If you have your heart set on a particular state, make sure you have your licensing ducks in a row. Some states can take up to a month to grant licensing so get the process started as soon as you can.
Flexibility is the name of the game, and being open to new places could lead to unexpected rewards and if you’re up for it, an adventure or two.
