Why consider locum tenens?
Providers who have the ability to work in different areas of the country are in high demand today, due to the continuing shortage of skilled professionals, particularly in primary care, family care and internal medicine.
One of the many advantages of a locum tenens position is that it gives you an opportunity to explore both the professional and the personal lifestyle available in an urban, rural or suburban community. For instance, you might be offered a temporary position with a practice in a beachfront, lakeside, mountain or desert setting – a very different experience than practicing in a major metropolitan area. Of course, the opposite is also true. If you’ve grown up and gone to school in a quiet Midwest community, for example, you could try working in fast-paced urban center.
Other benefits of locum tenens placements may include flexible scheduling, such as covering a particular shift or working four longer shifts i order to have three days off. That can be ideal for a NP or PA who needs to care for a young child or aging parent.
