PT Settings in New York
Starting your career after your DPT should not be the beginning of your settling down, in fact, it should be quite the opposite. The first stretch of your career should be filled with different experiences, professional and personal, to help you find your calling, passion, and path of expertise.
With Advanced, you will be given the professional flexibility to try different settings through 13-week travel assignments while having the reliable security of excellent pay and benefits. You can try different settings in locations across the country, try the same setting in different facilities, or extend at one you love. We give you the personal freedom to carve your own path as you explore your own interests.
Below you will find short descriptions of a few of the settings you can explore in New York.
Skilled Nursing Facilities
A SNF assignment will give a new grad PT the opportunity to treat a wide range of diagnoses while improving the quality of life for diverse types of patients. Patients may be at a SNF recovering for a short period of time or may be there for long-term care. Working alongside OTs, SLPs, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, you will offer rehabilitative care for patients with needs that are neurological, orthopedic, and more.
This setting allows a therapist to take on responsibility for patients in their place of residence. A Home Health PT assignment would be perfect for the new grad who isn’t quite ready for the same daily work routine. Patients range from the pediatric or acute, to the long-term or geriatric. Diagnoses treated in home health are also varied, including orthopedic, neurological, cardiopulmonary, and general medical.
Acute care assignments offer new grad PTs the opportunity to engage in assisting patients who are in critical condition. Positions in this setting can be extremely rewarding. New grads will hone the skills needed to aid in stabilizing patients and creating patient care plans to ensure the best possible recovery scenarios.
