Fun Things to do While Working for a Healthcare Staffing Agency

If you’re working for a healthcare staffing company, chances are you’re traveling to various job sites around the country. You might even be accepting international travel nursing positions. A healthcare staffing agency like Clinical One generally places people in short-term nursing assignments within the United States. While you’ll likely be working various shifts, there’s still going to be some downtime. Not sure what to do for recreation? The following fun ideas should get your creative juices flowing:

1) Look up the city’s leisure and recreation department to find out if they offer any GPS courses. It doesn’t take long to learn how to use a basic handheld GPS device and you can use it to play an internationally known game called geo-caching. The Internet is a valuable resource for more detailed information on what geo-caching is all about.

2) Refer friends to the healthcare staffing agency and consider taking travel assignments together. Agencies like Clinical One offer referral bonuses for every qualifying friend or family member!

3) Go shopping. Depending on where your temporary nursing job is located, there’s a good chance of finding off-the-beaten-track boutiques, spas, shoe stores, and clothing stores.

4) Visit the public library on your off days. Nobody ever thinks of the library, but it’s the perfect place to find serenity and hopefully a good book to rest your mind.

5) Sign up for a tour of the city. Most cities and towns offer historic, cultural or scenic tours for minimal cost.

6) Explore the great outdoors! Visit the local hike and bike trail, take up kayaking, go rock climbing, or what other adventures await you in the local area.

In order to get the most of your travel work experience, don’t be afraid to get out there and try new things. This is just a very short list of ideas to get you started on your adventure.
