PT Settings in North Carolina
If you are wondering why you should become a travel therapist after your DPT is complete, professional flexibility may be one of the most important reasons. At Advanced Travel Therapy, no one is going to tell you what setting to commit to, where to work, who to treat, or how to prioritize your wants and needs.
We will give you the support, financial stability, and benefits you need to explore settings through your 13-week travel assignments. You can try different settings in locations across the country, try the same setting in different facilities, or extend at one you love.
Below you will find short descriptions of a few of the settings you can explore in North Carolina.
Skilled Nursing Facilities
If you are interested in learning more about comprehensive care plans while treating diverse patients, a SNF assignment may be the one for you. In this setting, you will work alongside OTs, SLPs, nurses, and other healthcare professionals while caring for patients that are short or long term and range from the young adult to the geriatric.
Home health assignments offer new grad PTs a great deal in the way of variety. First, by treating patients in their places of residence, you can avoid going to the same facility for work every day. In addition, the diagnoses and patients treated in home health vary greatly. These assignments can also help a new grad gain independence, confidence, and relational skills.
In acute hospital settings, new grad PTs get the opportunity to engage in assisting patients who are in critical condition after accidents, illness, or surgery. Assisting in stabilizing patients, ensuring safe discharge, and offering recovery care plans can help new grads build the skills needed to work with more severe cases in short-term facilities.
