One of the most exotic and enticing of travel nurse jobs is Hawaii travel nursing, but —with the distance involved— many nurses wait for years until the right circumstances fall into place. One of our experienced RN Telemetry nurses (she had been a travel nurse for seven years), decided it was finally time to go to Hawaii and took an assignment on the island of Maui.
Haleakala Crater at Sunrise
Many of our Hawaii travel nurses tell us that they really enjoy their island apartments with their lush natural surroundings and beach views. Maui is a nature-lover's paradise that presents endless opportunity for exploration and adventure. Of course, we all think of sun, sand, and surf when we think of Hawaii, but how about 30 degree weather and snow? Our Hawaii travel nurse sent us this amazing photo of Haleakala Crater at sunrise (above). Haleakala is a dormant volcano that last erupted in 1790. It rises up over 10,000 feet and the temperature drops over 30 degrees. At the summit, you are actually above the clouds!
Maui nursing jobs could send you on a guided hiking tour of Haleakala State Park where you can watch the sunrise from its famous volcanic crater. Or you could spot a humpback whale on a whale-watching expedition, drive along the scenic Hana highway, refresh and rejuvenate in one of Maui's spas — or spend a day browsing the museums, shops and restaurants of the the historic whaling village of Lahaina. Surrounded by the blue Pacific, you can sportfish, kiteboard, snorkel, scuba, sail, swim, sunbathe or surf. And as far as surfing goes, you can hang ten for yourself, or you can watch the surfers rip up the big waves in Honolua Bay. Either way, mahalo!
