Imagine a life where you can travel to a new and beautiful place every 6 weeks! Whilst you’re at each place, you get to utilise your clinical skills and earn money. Better yet, you are even given heavily subsidised accommodation (sometimes even FREE) in close proximity to where you work.
Perhaps you like this place so much you decide to stay longer (or you seek a new adventure) .
You earn enough money to enjoy time off and explore the surrounding area or even take a flight to a nearby island.
You don’t need to apply for annual leave because you decide when you want to work.
Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?
I’m Sam and my partners name is Rachel, and together we are Go Anywhere Nursing, a couple of travellers who are both Agency Nurses with Healthcare Australia (HCA). I’m an Australian and Rachel is Canadian, and we’re living the dream, travelling around Australia in our motor-home. We use the perks of our chosen careers, and the flexibility of HCA, to work everywhere across Australia.
Together we love agency work. We could never imagine going back to the grind of full-time nursing jobs again. As our preferred Australian agency, HCA helps us continue to live this dream life.
Why we love working for HCA?
– Flexibility – We’re able to pick up contracts when it suits us and enjoy the adventurous lifestyle we’ve always wanted. To top it off, we get to see Australia and meet some amazing people along the way.
– Highest pay rates – From our experience, HCA offers the best rates for agency nurses!
-Awesome incentives and promotions – They always have a great deal going on for their nurses! Like the FREE FLIGHT Promo which ends in June of this year, reimbursement for professional development or frequent flyer points! If you pick up rural and remote contracts, you’ll also get free accommodation and travel. How good is that! HCA is currently running a competition to Win a Go Pro Hero 5. More details on how to enter can be found at the end of this blog.
eHCA App – HCA is the only agency we’ve come across that has a smartphone app. This makes it easy for you to update your availability, find shifts, get your timesheets signed and access your payslips. They also send an updated spreadsheet of R&R contracts available upon request!
It’s because of all of these ‘HCA’ perks that we have been able to pack up our motor-home on the east coast and start a lap of the country. We’re now on the west coast working in new interesting areas and exploring new parts of the country. We’re also making more money than we ever could have dreamed of, compared to when we were staff Nurses, and have the flexibility to work and holiday when we want.
