PT Settings in Louisiana
Although the great pay, benefits, and adventure of travel are great, there’s an advantage that’s even more important: professional and personal flexibility. Becoming a travel PT will allow you to prioritize all your wants and needs however you see fit. This flexibility is especially beneficial when it comes to trying out settings. Before settling down, through 13-week travel assignments, you can try different settings in locations across the country, the same setting in different facilities, or extend at one you love. All the while, you can plan your assignments and time-off while prioritizing what matters to you.
A few of the settings you can try out in Louisiana or elsewhere in the country with Advanced Travel Therapy include:
Home Health Agencies
Long Term Care Facilities
Acute Care Facilities
Skilled Nursing Facilities
Home health may not stand-out as a new grad PT’s first choice of setting. Treating patients in their place of residence in the absence of a larger team or facility can be daunting. However, this type of assignment will help a fresh PT gain independence, confidence, and patient care skills rapidly. This is especially true because home health patients vary greatly in terms of population and diagnosis.
