Re: Cross country moves

Ashley, I think that air-mattress is about to become your biggest piece of furniture. :-) But seriously, I say put the bed, dresser, table, and most of the kitchen stuff into a cheap storage area and rent a furnished apartment. My wife and I traveled out of an Accord making many long trips for a num...

Re: Licensure

Just a more recent update on this topic: After a long, long process applying for licensure in AK last year, I spoke with FSBPT about the situation that many of us travelers run into. Many licenses means a lot of verifications that are mostly required in paper form sent through snail mail - the proce...

Re: Experienced Traveler

Hey Kristen!

I stumbled across an old blog I did on professional growth during traveling... seems pertinent to our conversation.

Re: Experienced Traveler

I tried to drum up some attention to this post so we could get some other view points too... guess it didn't really work, maybe I'll try again over the next couple days to get some friends on here writing. As far as your resume goes, I don't think there is any harm at all in leaving your first job a...

Re: Experienced Traveler

Kristen, Thanks for writing, this is definitely the question I hear most often. When I started traveling I had worked for 6 months. 6 years later, quitting that job was still one of the hardest things I have had to do professionally, but also the most rewarding :). My point is, I totally understand ...

Re: Welcome!

Thanks, Nicole. Definitely come back with any questions you have and I hope traveling treats you well!

On our end, we're just getting settled on our new assignment in Maine. Today's day 1 of work and it looks like it'll be a great assignment! Keep me updated.

Benefits

We are frequently asked about the intricacies of benefits. Ask early in the process of job finding about what benefits are offered. Not every company will offer all benefits, but it's good to have a tally going on who is offering you what. In my mind, it doesn't matter how the pay breaks down into h...

Re: Students & Travelling PT?

Hey Dan, I'll answer! I too have my OCS and pursued it while doing travel PT. I also originally graduated with my MSPT and got my tDPT while traveling. I think these two things have been huge in my development as a PT. As a traveler, you don't always have direct mentorship where you are working. Aft...

Re: Income Taxes

Kate and I used a service this year called "Travel Tax." It's run by a guy who used to be a traveler, but went into taxes and does them for just traveling PTs, nurses, and everything. It went smoothly and I felt like he really knew his stuff about how taxes apply to our unique situations. " Travelta...
