It is that wonderful time of year when everyone is making travel plans! Spring Break is just around the corner and soon it will be Summer. Locums are in-season. Physician coverage is in demand. And we are receiving tons of new Job Orders each day! Have you thought about where you want to travel this Summer? Why not make a little money while you’re there? Locum Tenens work, whether it be at a clinic or hospital facility, rural or city, long- or short-term, almost always includes covered travel and lodging expenses. So do a little work during the day and enjoy the city at night.
Many states even offer a Locum Tenens License. Instead of waiting the typical 2-12 months to obtain a permanent license in that state, they offer a speedier option whereby you can obtain a temporary or locums permit in 2-8 weeks. The fees are less and the wait times are shorter. It’s a win-win. The third piece of that is that the client receives the coverage they need much more quickly. Win-win-win!
States such as Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Wyoming and others will grant temporary licenses. New Hampshire, Maine, Indiana, Texas and others even have an expedited protocol on top of that to get Locums Physicians in quickly. All Medical’s experienced administrative staff can provide paperwork assistance to help make the licensing process as quick and painless as possible.
Not a Physician? Nurse Practitioners are also in demand. Many facilities are now using certified Advanced Practice Nurses to fill in as well. And with the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), it makes obtaining an APRN license in a compact state for a practitioner who already has a multistate nursing license a much quicker process. The compact states are Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. 24 states and counting!
