Have you thought much about where you want to work next? Nurses today have a lot of choices beyond hospitals. Before you begin to submit applications for your next job, it may be helpful to evaluate the options and choose the places that fit your long-term goals and interests. Nursing is a far-reaching profession, and you’re in a position to make it into something that works for you. Here are some places to consider applying.
The first and most logical choice for many nurses looking for a new position is to apply to the local hospitals in your area. Nurses are in demand, so they are always looking for qualified people to fill their open positions.
Clinics are also a popular choice. There are a variety of clinics, /from pharmacies to urgent care and specialized clinics. There is more competition for these types of jobs, so consider your priorities and interests when applying.
Long-Term Care Facilities
These kinds of jobs include those at nursing homes, retirement homes, and rehab facilities. Finding nurses who are not only qualified to provide medical care, often for the elderly, is not the only need these facilities have. They must also hire for patience and attitude.
If you don’t want to work directly with patients, there are other environments to consider as well. Health insurance companies will often hire nursing experts to help them with their processes.
Home Health Care
Some older adults want to age in place, but they can’t do that without regular medical support. Home care is becoming a large industry and one that works directly with the consumer, often through a placement agency.
If what you crave is adventure, travel nursing is a great option. You can take short-term assignments in cities all across the country, including Hawaii and Alaska. It’s a great way to learn travel the country and get paid.
Of course, with any of these positions, the best ways to find a new opportunity is to apply with a staffing agency dedicated to healthcare placements. They can work with you to find the best possible fit for what you want in your nursing career.
