In Travel Assignments, Travel Nurse

If you’re a seasoned traveler, what type of travel nurse assignments are still on your bucket list? Phoenix, Honolulu, and San Diego are among the must-see cities for travel nurses, but those can be crowded with a high cost of living. Maybe you’d like a rural adventure where you can step outside on a day off and hike a trail from your front door. Maybe you’d like to go skiing in the winter or experience 24 hours of darkness in winter or all-day sunshine in the summer. If you’re new to travel nursing, we have a few ideas to help you make a decision.

  2. Snowy Assignment. If you prefer winter sports like snowshoeing, skiing, and snowboarding, then Alaska is for you! Check out YouTubers Somers in Alaska where you can learn what it’s like living in extreme weather with 24 hours of light and then 24 hours of darkness for months on end.  Not to mention that Alaska has a lot to offer in terms of nature, unique wildlife, adventure, as well as travel nurse assignments.

If you can work with someone with whom you already have an established relationship, that can be great for both of you and benefit the facility where you’re placed. You can explore new areas together and you will never be alone. It can, however, be challenging for you both to get the same shifts so it’s best to be flexible. Your recruiter can help you find the right place for you.
  8. Rural Assignment. Get out of your comfort zone and work where Amazon and Door Dash don’t deliver. Instead, explore the local restaurants and shops. Unplug from electronics and take a walk.
