4 Best West Coast Road Trips

4 Best West Coast Road Trips for Your Weekend Getaway

 

One of the many things that you’ll love about being a traveling health professional is taking the time to explore new locations as you move to and from new assignments. You just can’t beat getting paid to work in the beautiful West Coast while you do some serious sightseeing. Whether you’re looking to make the most of traveling to and from an assignment or have an upcoming weekend free to explore, here’s a guide of the best road trips on the West Coast!

 

Pacific Coast Highway

Also known as Highway 1, is it one of America’s most beloved driving destinations, as there are very few routes like this one. Running for 550 miles, Highway 1 stretches along most of California’s coastline. Driving down the coastline means hours of overlooking the Pacific and its ocean views, beaches, attractions and discovering what The Golden State is all about. Give this road trip a minimum of three days.

Make your way from northern San Francisco to San Diego, or vice versa. Some popular places to stop along the way include Silicon Valley in San Jose, the popular beaches of Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Santa Barbara, Bixby Bridge and Big Sur’s breathtaking views, explore wine country and much more! Make a stop in Hollywood and some natural parks along the way – you won’t regret it!

 

Highway 395

This is one of the west coast’s (and world’s) most traveled highways. It goes through a wide range of locations mainly in California, such as the dry Mojave desert to the high Sierra Nevada and White Mountains to the marvelous Sequoia in redwoods and the highest point in California, the famous Mt. Whitney to the widely explored Yosemite and majestic Lake Tahoe.

With such a varied landscape throughout its journey, you will have plenty to see and experience. Haunt your way through plenty of ghost towns and reminisce back to California’s Gold Rush era! With an abundance of natural landscape, and even some old artwork and development going on in the state, you won’t run out of beautiful things to discover. There is plenty to see of the western life and its recreation such as fishing, boating, hiking, skiing & snowboarding year round that you can even try if time allows!

Highway 101: Oregon to the California Border

This highway winds down the entire Oregon coast, from the Columbia River to the California border. Along the way it passes through the scenic Oswald West state Park, perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking, surfing, bird watching and camping, to the popular city destinations such as Portland. Tillamook and Lincoln County will also be along the way. Do you love cheese more than most people? You’re in luck – Tillamook is the home of the popular tourist attraction Tillamook Cheese factory!

Highway 101: From Washington’s Capitol to Shores

A twisty and mostly two-lane road, this trip will take you everywhere from the honorable State Capitol to its beautiful western shores. Pass through tiny villages and don’t forget to pull over for stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and a quick snack of oysters, clams and delicious seafood! You will also get the opportunity to visit the city of Forks and the Forks Timber Museum-and detour along Upper Hoh road to one of four temperate rain forests in the peninsula.

Taylor Shellfish Farms in Shelton is a prime place to make a pitstop and enjoy the region’s specialty, geoduck as well as some seafood. Pass through farms with llamas, yaks, bears and more. Visit Port Angeles nestled up in the Olympic Mountains, and if you have an extra day, explore the Olympic National Park, a World Heritage site and spectacular Hurricane ridge.

Whether you’re interested in travel nursing, per diem, allied, locum tenens or permanent placement, KPG Healthcare is your trusted partner for high quality, rewarding career opportunities.

5 Ways to Nail Your Next Job Interview

5 Tips To Nailing Your Job Interview

Although the field can be a stressful place, becoming the member of a healthcare team is one of the most rewarding types of jobs that are available, for various reasons. Healthcare offers job security and exceptional pay and benefits. There are many different types of positions to choose from that stretch beyond being a doctor or a nurse. But more importantly, you will get to make a direct impact on many people’s lives.

It doesn’t stop there. The relationships you build and lives you touch will make a lasting imprint in the world. What you do matters and is always going to be of necessity. The need for healthcare is always in high demand and shows no signs of slowing down, in fact, it is steadily increasing as the world changes and evolves.

Whether you are aiming for your first position or hoping to make a move to climb the ladder in your career, consider these five tips to ace that job interview.

First Impressions Matter

You want to make sure you are giving your future employer the best first impression, as this might be your only opportunity to impress them. Make sure you dress for success. Whether you are interviewing for a C-Level position or Level I RN position, make sure to be in appropriate business professional attire. This means a dress, skirt  or dress pants with a blouse or jacket for women and dress pants with a shirt, tie and jacket for men. Ladies, keep your makeup and jewelry classy and to a minimum! Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to show you are more than capable of being on time.

Do Your Research

Learn everything you can about the organization, hospital, staff members, and the interviewer. You will most likely be given the names of the individual(s) you are interviewing with. Spend some time researching each individual. Have they one any recent awards? What day to day job responsibilities do they hold in their current position? Make sure you know things about the hospital and organization such as their mission, beliefs, and awards. These are great topics to discuss and possible questions they could bring up during your interview. There is no such thing as being overly prepared! Google and LinkedIn are great online tools you can use to get started.

Show What You Can Do  

If you do not already have one, make sure you put together a professional portfolio that highlights your education and career. It should include any certifications, licenses, diplomas, awards, accomplishments, letters of recommendation, references, published articles, community service, etc. Bring multiple copies of your printed resume and be ready to hand it out. Don’t hesitate to bring up those accomplishments during the course of your interview if it does not come up in the interviewer’s questions.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Practice makes perfect, right? Search the web and find potential questions you will be asked in your interview. Find a friend or family member who is willing to review practice questions with you. Have them ask you a series of questions ranging from behavioral based questions to common questions related to the position you are applying for. Work on answering those questions not only with them but also in front of a mirror as well as practice greeting your interviewers and smile.

Be Confident

Never forget to show your enthusiasm for the position throughout the interview and smile! It is important to show your potential employers how much you want the position and how much energy you are willing to put forth. Preparing for an interview can be nerve-wracking and exhausting, so make sure you stay hydrated and nourished to remain upbeat. And don’t forget coffee if you need it! Also, just remember, you meet the requirements and guidelines for the position and have come more than ready, it’s time to shine!
