It’s the new year, so what better time to try a switch-up in your career? If you’re a healthcare worker and you’ve considered traveling, or if you have a love for adventure, this is your year to get out of your comfort zone and into new cities.
RTG Medical is one of the best medical staffing agencies in the area, and our recruiters are great at pairing our traveling healthcare professionals with a job and location they love. Here are some of the best reasons for you to become a healthcare traveler this year!
Becoming a healthcare traveler gives you an increased opportunity to grow in your career. You will never have the same job twice, and because of that you’ll develop an abundance of unique skills and experiences that you can take with you to your next assignment. You won’t get bored working as a traveling healthcare professional!
Healthcare travelers reap the amazing salary and benefits that come along with the job. You can get paid quite a bit per hour depending on where you work, and many medical staffing agencies offer perks such as housing stipends and covering some other expenditures. Healthcare workers are always in high demand, and facilities are willing to pay top dollar for experienced employees.
If you’ve run out of opportunities in your hometown or where you’re currently living, consider becoming a healthcare traveler and working in several different cities. You can specialize in one specific area and work in various hospitals and clinics in the country. The opportunities are endless!
Low cost of living
The cost of living is relatively low for healthcare travelers. You are more than likely to receive a housing stipend from your medical staffing agencies to help pay for housing. You can avoid certain bills by constantly being on-the-go. You can also consider van life!
Something many people want in their career is a flexible schedule. You will receive flexible hours and can choose how much you want to work, or don’t want to work, each week and in-between contracts. It’s also easier to take time off because you can plan around your 13-week long assignments and submit requests beforehand.
Traveling is the main perk of becoming a healthcare traveler! You can explore new places and, as you, do develop new interests, meet new people and make new friends. You can opt to stick to tourist destinations or talk to the locals and find little niches in each place you visit. Becoming a healthcare traveler is a great way to see the country, learn about other cultures and experience the unknown.
