A career as a travel nurse can be very fulfilling – and exciting. Travel nurses get to travel the country, exploring new cities, and meeting new friends along the way. Assignments can last anywhere from 4 – 13 weeks on average, leaving you lots of time to see the sites, sample the cuisine, and become familiar with local culture. Plus, an experienced nurse has their pick of cities – can you think of any other profession that allows you to visit all the places on your bucket list, and get paid to do it?
This summer, a lot of cities are going to be in dire need of travel nurses to help staff their hospitals and medical facilities. To save you the work of research, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 cities for travel nurses this summer:
