Advantages of Locum Tenens vs. Staff Role
As a CRNA, nurse practitioner, physician, physician assistant or other advanced practice provider, there are several advantages to choosing a locum tenens role compared to a staff position. Here are some key benefits for locum tenens providers:
Flexibility of Locums Tenens
Locum tenens positions provide a high level of flexibility in terms of when and where you work. As a locum provider, you have the freedom and independence to choose your schedule and the facilities where you work. This can be beneficial for individuals who desire a better work-life balance, or wish to explore various healthcare settings, or have more time for family, social engagements, travel and self-care.
Compared to the single environment of a staff position, working as a locum tenens provider allows you to gain exposure to different healthcare facilities and teams, patient populations, and clinical practices, which can keep you engaged and promote continuous learning. This broadens your clinical experience and enhances your patient care skills, making you a more versatile and adaptable healthcare professional.
As a locum tenens professional, you can earn higher rates of pay compared to your full-time counterparts. Aequor Locums has tremendous negotiating power with healthcare facilities, and we advocate for your interests. Additionally, you’ll receive compensation for travel expenses and housing, which can further enhance your income.
Reduced Administrative Burden & Office Politics
Staff positions typically come with administrative responsibilities and paperwork related to running a clinic or department, not to mention the internal politics. In contrast, locum tenens providers aren’t burdened with these tedious administrative tasks or workplace drama, allowing you to focus on patient care.
Testing a Practice Setting
If you’re uncertain about your long-term career goals or the type of healthcare facility you’d prefer to work in, locum tenens offers an excellent opportunity to test different practice settings before committing to a permanent position.
Enhanced Networking Opportunities
Locum tenens positions allow you to build a broad professional network across different healthcare facilities, which can be valuable for future career opportunities or collaborations. Plus, getting to know your colleagues and other providers across multiple settings provides you with a support system if you’re away from your home base temporarily.
