When you hear the words “travel nurse” I bet you immediately think of all the exotic and beautiful locations like Honolulu, San Diego and Miami. Believe me, when it comes to traveling, I think of those places too but what I tend to forget is all the other places that have the same offerings but perhaps in a smaller scale or without the large population. What’s the first place you think of when you hear the word, skiing? For me, since I live in the Midwest, would be Colorado. Colorado of course, is not the only state to offer skiing and mountains. There is Utah, California, New Mexico, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Wyoming and on the east coast of the United States there’s Vermont, New York, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. You see, there are more options than you would have originally thought!
All these popular destinations have a lot to offer the traveler, and it’s no wonder they also attract a lot of tourists from around the world. It all depends on you and what you like. If you want to be where everyone else and their mother is working and vacationing, then yes, go ahead and pick places like Los Angeles or Miami, Florida. But if you want to have access to things like beaches and mountains and whatever else, why not pick somewhere that isn’t the first place that comes to mind. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. You may find yourself on a tucked away beach with only a few people in sight with white sand and perfect waves galore and it can become your little secret.
With 50 states to choose from, the hidden treasures are endless. There’s nothing wrong with choosing places with a little more reputation to it, but don’t forget about trying out those little gems. Besides all the activities that travel nursing has to offer you at the different locations, there’s also the people and culture to discover. Travel nursing is not a typical occupation, so why pick a typical destination? The nursing shortage hasn’t hit only major cities, it’s everywhere. Your help and expertise will be well received in towns and communities across this great country and there are many alternatives out there no matter what your desires are… With travel nursing you are sure to uncover them all, 13 weeks at a time.
