Travel nursing has been in high demand due to an ever-changing healthcare marketing place and staffing shortages across the country. However, you don’t have to be an LPN or RN in order to find travel job opportunities. There are many options for those in allied health professions.
What are Allied Health Professions?
Allied health covers a broad range of healthcare professionals. Some allied health workers provide direct support to physicians and nurses by helping them to evaluate patient needs or provide care to patients. Others work independently as specialists such as nutritionists, athletic trainers and speech therapists. At Emerald City Medical Staffing, some of the common allied health contracts include:
- Respiratory Therapist
- Surgical Technicians
- CVOR Surgical Technicians
- CT Technologist
- MRI Technologist
- Radiology Technologist
- Ultrasound Technicians
