Your Next Travel Nursing Adventure.


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.

First time bonus!

About the Author:

Patrick Fuerstenau here. Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions and am going on my 3rd year as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me. Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager! And I love writing about travel nursing.
