If you are a travel nurse with a passion for music, the summer months can really rock. There is no better time to hit the road. With so many summer festivals and concerts all over the country it would be difficult to see them all but if you plan accordingly you can place yourself ahead of time and be ready when that band you’ve been desperately wanting to see rolls into town. Most major cities will draw the bigger names in the music business, so there’s a good chance that those in the Billboard Top 100 will likely make a stop in any of those places. Over at HospitalReview.org is a great top 10 list of cities that have a great musical presence as well as a listing of the best hospital in those cities… Check out the article Nurse By Day Indie Rocker By Night – Hospitals In Towns With the Best Music. The list is pretty good with one exception, there’s no mention of Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha is well known for its music scene with a number of bands and artists who have made a name for themselves nationally. It’s also known for its healthcare facilities like the Boys Town National Research Center and The University of Nebraska Medical Center leading the way.
