OT Settings in Nevada
The beauty of working with Advanced Travel Therapy is the freedom we give you to build your own career the way you want. On our team, no one will ever tell you what patients to treat or where to work. You can try the same setting in various locations, try different settings in the same location, or extend at a facility you love.
You also get this professional flexibility knowing that you will have health insurance, a 401k, great pay, and a support system that will always have your back. So, make each travel assignment your own without any worries!
Below you will find short descriptions of a few of the settings you will find in Nevada.
If you want to treat a patient in the most important environment, then the home health setting may be one for you to try. You will help individuals who are struggling to feel safer and more capable in the place that they need it most. You will evaluate and assist in various domains including home safety, independent living, and adaptive equipment. This setting will also keep you from the routine of going to the same facility every day if you're not ready for that yet.
Skilled Nursing Facilities
In a SNF, an OT will assist in the rehabilitation of patients after illness or injury. OTs in this setting will work alongside other healthcare professionals like PTs, SLPs, audiologists, and nurses. It is important to note that patients in SNFs may be short-term or long-term (even permanent). This will impact the type of OT intervention they will need from you as a provider. Rehabilitation can range from training in functional mobility to environment modifications.
Acute care is an inpatient setting for patients who are in critical condition. An OT working in this setting will primarily try to help stabilize the patient and address immediate threats or loss of function. According to AOTA, OTs are critical in these settings, facilitating early mobilization, restoring function, preventing further decline, and coordinating care, including transition and discharge planning. A few of the interventions you may engage in include:
- Training families and caregivers to assist with range-of-motion exercises, safe transfers and mobility.
- Providing training in self-care activities with adaptive or durable medical equipment and/or compensatory techniques.
- Remediating upper-extremity weakness and/or abnormal muscle tone through exercise.

Living In Nevada
Vegas baby! That’s right, we are talking about Las Vegas, Nevada’s brighter claim to fame. Whether you take an assignment in the out-of-this-world city or not, you will probably visit it at least once while in the “Silver State.” We probably don’t need to tell you about the awesome shows and dazzling hotels, so here's some weird trivia instead:
- There is more shrimp consumed in Las Vegas per day than the rest of the U.S.A. combined.
- The Stratosphere Tower on The Strip is the tallest free standing observation tower in the country.
- The Strip is about 4.2 miles long but it has over 75,000 miles of neon.
Alright, that’s enough about Vegas because there is much more to the State of Nevada. With 172 mountain summits, Nevada is actually the most mountainous state in the contiguous U.S. It also has about 28,000 wild horses roaming freely around its lands. So if you’re an OT who hopes to fill your time off with outdoor activities, Nevada should be in the running for at least one of your assignments. You can go caving beneath the Great Basin, paddle-board at Lake Tahoe, tube down the Truckee, and so much more.
Cities like Reno and Henderson also offer great urban atmospheres to explore outside of the Vegas bubble. And before we get off the subject of how awesome Nevada is, can we just say Area 51? Whether you’re into the whole alien or conspiracy theory thing or not, Nevada does give you a few spots that will pique your interest. Area 51, the Black Mailbox, and Little A'Le'Inn on the Extraterrestrial Highway are definitely worth checking out!
