Each month I share blog posts about locum tenens from around the web.
I really enjoyed reading this article from Barton Associate’s Blog. Many other healthcare professionals have stereotypes about locum tenens providers. It was nice to see that other providers are beginning to see the qualities and strengths of locum tenen co-workers. At my current assignment, some of the physicians were surprised that I did not want to accept a permanent position. They asked me why I didn’t “prefer to have consistent work”. I explained to them that with locum tenens, there is consistent work. If anything, there are more jobs to choose from, and I prefer to have flexibility.
