We’ve been working with new therapy graduates since 2001 and have gotten pretty good about introducing adventurous therapists to the world of travel therapy. We’re excited to be introducing our new mentorship program. Read more »

Will Work For Travel

Will work for travel. That’s a slogan we use a lot around here. We love it because travelers WORK hard. You worked hard to earn your healthcare degree. Most of you are working hard to pay off student loans. And for 13 weeks you work hard to be of service to each and every patient who entrusts you with their care. Then you pack it all up, move, and do it again. That’s hard work.

We like working hard and being of service too. It’s basically our entire job. To be of service and support the healthcare professionals who work here. We like to think it’s why we connect so well with the travelers who choose Cariant. They get it. The being of service. The balance of play (or travel) with the responsibility of being as helpful as you can to whoever needs that help.

We work hard for you. You work hard for patients. You work to travel.

If you want to learn more about our philosophy, and hopefully have a conversation or two, you can find our team at AOTA in Salt Lake City this week, and at schools and national shows throughout the year.

And of course you can always find us here, working hard. Just like you.

A Quick Look at the PT Licensure Compact

On April 25, 2017, the PT Licensure Compact (PTLC) was enacted. For physical therapists and physical therapist assistants whose home state is currently WA, OR, MT, ND, UT, AZ, TX, MO, KY, TN, MS, NC, and NH, they will have the option of compact privilege to work in the other participating states. This will immensely simplify the effort needed for travelers to work in multiple states.

Traveler Hobbies

What do you do when you are miles away from home and not at work? What will keep you from spending all of your hard-earned money? What will give you fond memories of your current assignment and ones to come? A hobby!

Through the years, I have worked with many travelers and the question always remains the same, “What can I do with my free time so I don’t break the bank, but still enjoy my time traveling?” Read more »
