Older NPs- jobs in 2 states?

  1. Husband wants to purchase a vacation home in another state. This likely won't happen for a year or two but I am trying to be proactive about my job situation. Husband has his own business and a very flexible schedule so he would like to spend part of the year at the second home (in the Charleston, SC area) and part of the year at our home in Virginia.

    I currently work at a small independent family practice. I do not think that they would be able to accommodate a request for me to work for 9 months at their practice, then have me gone for 3 months. Similarly, I think it would be very difficult to find a practice in SC that would be willing to have me for only 3 months at a stretch.

    Anyone been in a similar position before and what did you do to resolve it? I am a FNP so that gives me some flexibility in patient populations. I love home health so I would be very interested in any organization that might have home health positions in more than one state. Perhaps I could go back and forth between the 2 states as long as management was aware of the situation during the hiring process. Or work for Minute Clinic?

    Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
