Well, that all depends on you, since Ardor Health has jobs all over the country that are ready for you!

Traveling To Somewhere You’ve Never Been

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to visit the Northeast and see Boston in the spring time, or perhaps you’ve heard about how beautiful the Carolinas can be when the flowers are blooming, so why not see it for yourself? Spring can be one of the best times to travel to new places because of the beautiful weather you can find. But those are just a few areas of the country that are perfect to visit in the spring time. Why not take a look in a state you’re interested in right now?

Traveling is a great option even if you are new to the world of travel therapy or travel nursing. Our team of recruiters will work personally with you to find you the best opportunity as a new grad in your preferred setting and area of the country.

 

Traveling To Visit Family

 

Traveling can be one of the most rewarding career paths you can take as a Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Language Pathologist or Nurse, but having to spend time away from family can be a difficult choice. As a family owned company, Ardor Health understands the value of keeping your loved ones close. We can always work to find you travel assignments that can put you close to your family. But say you want to visit some extended family you haven’t seen in awhile, not a problem! The country is yours to travel, so why not catch up with friends or family in locations you’d normally have to pay to visit? We think you should get paid and have the ability to see the people and places you love. If you fall in love with a particular area, many facilities can offer travel extensions from six months to a year, allowing you to get to know a city even more!

Travel Therapy Is Always Better Together

You probably know that travel therapy is one of the best options for therapist’s career, especially if you’re a new grad. Traveling allows you to see the country while getting paid to help others and grants you almost limitless opportunities! But some people think that travel therapy means they have to be away from friends or their significant other. But that’s not really the case anymore. Ardor Health makes traveling with a friend or partner easy, whether you’re a Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Language Pathologist, or any other Allied Health professional.

Traveling With Your Significant Other

Many Travelers often say they are worried how traveling might affect their relationships. On one hand they would love to see the country and help others in different states. But on the other hand, they don’t want to be apart from their significant other for a long period of time. But many travel therapists enjoy the comfort of having the best of both worlds!

The picture on the right is a photo of Gabe and Jessica Renzi. They are two physical therapists that have been traveling together for several years! To date, they have worked at 13 different assignments in 5 states. They are a great example of how traveling with your significant other can open up your career and your life to new and exciting possibilities.

Of course, it’s great if your partner is in the same healthcare field as you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t travel together if you’re in different fields. If your partner isn’t in the same field, they could travel with you and work remotely if their job allows it. Telecommuting is becoming more and more popular among employers. Your partner could also take a few months off and take online classes while they travel with you.
 

Other Traveling With Your BFF

Traveling with a friend is also a great option, especially for new grads. Ardor Health would work to find both of you a position in a new city, allowing you both to ease into the change in location and atmosphere. Starting off your career with a friend by your side is one of the best ways to get started in travel therapy! Having someone to share new experiences with is priceless when traveling.

But at the same time, you can expect to make many new friends along the way, possibly wanting to start new travel contracts with them in the future as well.

That’s the advantage of traveling with Ardor Health. Your personal recruiter will do their best to find a place to lives for both of you and your partner/friend that accommodates the both of you. It may cost a bit more to take someone with you, but Ardor Health’s compensation plans will easily lift any financial burden that you may have.

Home Health Adding More Jobs Compared To Other Settings

Home Health Job Growth On The Up & Up

Anyone who enjoys working in a Home Health setting is in for a pleasant surprise. New information from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that Home Health has added more jobs than any other healthcare setting.

In the past, Home Health has been the subject of high turnover, but that appears to have changed over the last 12 months. The Home Health setting has addded 74,900 jobs at a growth of 5.8%!

The chart above shows off the various changes over the past 12 months in different health care settings. Outpatient care grew at 4.2% while hospitals grew at 3.7%. Nursing and residential care grew as well, but only by 1.2%.Home_Health.jpg

In the first quarter of 2016 alone, Home Health added 30,000 jobs! Specifically, home health care added about 10,000 jobs in each month of 2016’s first quarter, higher than the 12-month average of 7,000 jobs.

According to HomeHealthCareNews.com, these numbers point to widespread predictions that home health will be among the fastest-growing employment sectors as the population ages.

In March alone, Home Health reached upwards to 9% of health care employment. Nursing and other residential care facilities accounted for 21 % of healthcare employment. However, that number could change in the near future, since a large amount of Baby Boomers are projected to retire.

To sum up, the health sector added 118,000 jobs in Q1 2016, nearly identical to the 119,000 jobs added in Q4 2015. However, reports predict that job growth pace in the health sector will slow from its recent, brisk pace.
