Although there are exceptions, most patients in SNFs are from a geriatric population and they maybe short-term, long-term, or residents.

Living In A New Mexico
New Mexico is a southwestern state that offers an exceptional blend of history, culture, modernity, and adventure. The geography of the state is relatively complex and varies greatly depending on where you are; it ranges from rose-colored deserts to snow-capped mountains. The weather also depends on where you find yourself, the southern part of the state gets pretty hot whereas the northern part will get snow in the winters.
All this variety lends itself to some magnificent natural wonders for outdoorsy PTs who love adventures. The list of things you can do in the Land of Enchantment, from camping to sky-diving, is endless. Here are a few of the places you may want to plan to see while on assignment:
- Ghost Ranch
- Valles Caldera
- Carlsbad Caverns
- Tent Rocks
- Taos Gorge
- Blue Hole
- Brazos Cliffs
- White Sands National Monument
- Bisti Badlands
- Bosque Del Apache
New Mexico also has much to offer PTs who prefer cityscapes. Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Roswell, and Silver City are just a few of the urban centers that you can explore on assignment. With food, music, art, and shopping venues that range from the one-of-a-kind mom-and-pop shops to the nationally renowned, you will have plenty to do when you’re not at work.
If you’re not a PT yet but are interested in becoming one while in LA, check out the DPT program at the University of New Mexico. As you get closer to graduating, make sure you check our blog where you’ll find a lot of good information for new grads.
