Traveling at a Magnet hospital
A healthcare staffing company may be able to help a traveling physical therapist land a job at a Magnet hospital. The Magnet Recognition program is operated by the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC) to recognize healthcare facilities and organizations with nursing excellence, innovations in nursing practice and quality patient care. This is the highest credential a healthcare organization can receive for high quality patient services, and many accredited hospitals attract the top talent in the industry, according to the ANCC.
Although a Magnet recognition is focused on the quality of nursing an organization provides, it says a lot about the facility as a whole. These organizations often provide an array of opportunities for growth and development to employees who have reached prestigious, specified standards. For this reason, all healthcare professional may want to strive to work at a hospital recognized with the distinction.
A physical or occupational therapist can play a role in the quality programs and patient care that these Magnet hospitals have been recognized for, by taking a travel assignment there. Not only have the working conditions of these facilities been cited as preferable to other hospitals, research has found that the healthcare professionals working at these locations have more job satisfaction.
Going on an assignment at a Magnet hospital can also help a travel therapist expand his or her resume. Future employers and supervisors will be impressed by the background the travel professional has from working in a top-notch facility.
If given the chance to apply or work at hospital that has been awarded the Magnet distinction, travelling healthcare professionals should take advantage of this opportunity.
