When it comes to the best winter assignments for travel, where you go is based largely on two factors.
The first is where the travel nurse jobs are available and the second is what kind of winter you want to experience. At AB Staffing, we’ve got your pick of locations so it’s up to you to decide if you want fun in the sun in places like Arizona, Nevada, or California or if you want to experience the winter wonderlands of pretty much the rest of the country including New York, Alaska, and Colorado.
The Christmas Spectacular Featuring The Rockettes, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and endless storefronts filled with wintry scenes are just part of your New York experience. Head upstate, [For locals, “upstate” refers to anywhere outside NYC] to Cooperstown, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame or to nearby Vermont for skiing and snowboarding.
For those looking for winter assignments for travel, consider a sports challenge and head to eco-friendly Denver, Colorado.
You not only experience world-class slopes, but also big city benefits like high-end shopping and commuter-friendly transportation. If you’re young and single, this is an excellent choice for best winter assignments for travel as the population is 20% millennial, the male to female ratio is about 50/50, and a quarter of the adult population has never been married.
Looking for a bigger winter challenge?

Take an assignment in Phoenix, Arizona from October through March and experience the best weather in the nation.
