GOLDEN TICKET: 4 STATES YOU MUST TRAVEL TO
(AND 1 THAT WILL SURPRISE YOU)
As you start to compare your travel assignment possibilities, you will quickly come to realize that not all states are created equal. Sure, there are rewarding professional opportunities in every state that can expand your professional credentials, but when you consider the personal side of your travel nursing experience, there are some states that just speak to you more than others. We get that, and that’s why we’re going to help you out with our list of states you simply must visit as a travel nurse.
* HAWAII. It all starts here, doesn’t it? A dream vacation destination for millions of people, you could actually be paid to live and work in Hawaii for months at a time. Relaxing in the sun, driving the Road to Hana and snorkeling with sea turtles and reef sharks are just a few of the wonders you can enjoy in Hawaii.
* CALIFORNIA. The Golden State is loaded with things to do, from the border with Mexico all the way to its northernmost point. What you do depends in part on the travel location you select. If you’re in San Diego, you must visit their world-famous zoo. In the Bay Area, it’s the Golden Gate Bridge, and if you’re in Los Angeles, there’s a star with your name on it. Well, at least there should be.
* FLORIDA. You’ve switched coasts, but Florida still offers many of the same waterfront amenities as the previous two on our list. In addition there’s the thrill of Miami, the one-of-a-kind NASA Kennedy Space Center and, if the family is coming along, Disney World.
* WASHINGTON. Mark this one as underrated on our list, but Washington is more than just Seattle — though that city has plenty of selling points of its own. Washington is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the United States, including the titanic Mount Rainier and the Hoh Rainforest. And if you want to stay on the water, Washington is also a great location for whale watching.
That's our quick list of four states you simply must visit. Which states make the cut for you?
