Traveler Times and Reflections

Travel Nurse in Arizona

Travel Nurse Adventures in Arizona - American Traveler

Joanne Hutchison and husband When Joanne H. told her friends and family she was going to Phoenix for the summer they told her was crazy, “It’s so hot!” they said. But for Joanne, the climate was great. “The temperature hasn’t bothered us so far- it’s actually quite lovely- very low humidity here,” she said. Pictures of her first week in the Grand Canyon State show encounters with local zoo residents and gorgeous desert landscape. “Funny animals and perfect weather,” Joanne said, “was a great way to start traveling Arizona and experience one of America’s fastest growing cities.”

The nurse extraordinaire has worked with American Traveler for over a year now and is “ENJOYING IT TREMENDOUSLY.” The great benefits, high pay, and personal freedom are amazing.
