We tend to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of trying to juggle a successful career and raising a family. With so much going on in our lives, we often forget to “stop and smell the roses,” so to speak.
By working in rural healthcare, you have a better chance of finding that work-life balance and still have a very successful and rewarding career. Having the possibility of stretching the boundaries by forging innovative programs and services, making rural life healthier and more compassionate. Isn’t that one of the reasons why you embarked on a career in healthcare? To have the opportunity to help people?
What’s not to love?
Better quality of life, no sitting in traffic for an hour. Living in a rural community often costs less, a chance to afford a larger home and be a part of a community. And who doesn’t love farm-fresh produce!?
Many of my clients that I work with in rural healthcare enjoy who they work with. The organizations they work for feel more like a large extended family rather than a group of co-workers. With the CEO walking the halls and having lunch in the cafeteria, rural health is much more welcoming. Having the ability to be a part of the community and seeing the difference that you can make is extremely rewarding.
Start your career in rural healthcare
There is a shortage in rural healthcare and now is the time to consider that option! Rural health is a great way to grow your career. You often see cases you might not normally come across in medical school or residency. You could see a broader scope of chief complaints, and that’s experience you just can’t buy.
I am working with some great Critical Access Hospitals that are looking for talented healthcare professionals just like you! Your patients will appreciate you and trust you. The need is real, and the reward is enormous! Working in rural health will very possibly reshape how you think the way you deliver care throughout the rest of your career!
