Read About What Makes Being a Locum Tenens NP a Great Career Path

One of the most fascinating parts, at least in our opinion, about nurse practitioners is how many different paths they can go down at the beginning of their nursing career. You can be an RN, FNP, DNP, and so many more. But have you considered turning all of those wonderful specialized nurse paths into locum tenens careers? Being a locum is one of the reasons Feneta F.C., FNP has stayed in practice. 

When we spoke to her in 2019, she told us "I think it's actually made me, probably, stay in healthcare longer. I think, if I were working full-time, I probably would've retired by now."

Her secondary reason for making the switch to locums is the flexibility that comes along with it. “I have elderly parents back home in England, and this was a good way to enjoy life and then also, to be able to go see my parents when I wanted to,” she said. A common positive attribute associated with being a locum provider is having the ability to build your schedule to meet your needs. “I love it because it does give you incredible flexibility and, for me, at this point in my life, this is very important,” she said.
