Travel Nurses with Kids Can Try these Best-Ever Holiday Breaks
The travel nurse lifestyle is ideal for nearly everyone, even registered nurses and allied healthcare professionals with young children. Here’s a peek at what top RN job locations have to offer you, your family—even your pets.
- Arizona Nursing Jobs Are Simply Breathtaking: Travel nursing careers here distinguish themselves, not just in top notch hospitals and rehab facilities, but in what they can offer visitors and residents. Because travel nursing offers plenty of flex time, it’d be remiss not to take the family out on excursions to other worldly places like Lake Powell, Tanque Verde Ranch and the Sonoran Desert, with over 100 horses to ride! Arizona is a wonderful mix of urban and natural delights, in cities like Phoenix (don’t miss the Arizona Science Center) and Scottsdale, not to mention breathtaking landscapes like the Grand Canyon.
- Family Memories Shine in California Nursing Jobs: Travel nursing in the Golden State creates warm memories for people of all ages and stages. Whether you’re taking your own photo or it’s a group shot, Mount Shasta makes a magnificent backdrop; shop and dine at the foot of this legendary mountain, or delight in other northern California hot spots like the Napa Valley or San Francisco. Your family will never forget views of the Golden Gate Bridge enveloped in fog. Further South, things warm up in San Diego’s Gaslamp District, where a trolley ride to the Mexican Border awaits!
- Florida Nursing Jobs Are Something Everyone Can Warm To! RN jobs here are synonymous with Mickey Mouse, Universal Studios and miles of conch shells and soft sand. Family friendly activities abound, particularly at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where kids and parents go on safari and plummet down Mount Everest, a great roller coaster! Orlando is home to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Sea World—just to name a few attractions with the power to enchant for weekends at a time. Other day trip possibilities are a scenic drive down A1A, toward Mile Marker 0, a.k.a. Key West!
- Howdy, Partner. Thought About Texas Nursing Jobs, Lately? Nursing careers in the Lone Star State are a chance to introduce the family to an urban cowboy’s dream! Rancho Cortez is just one of many adventures that await you—ride horses and eat award winning BBQ at dude ranches like this one, all over Texas, or live large as “city folk” in places renown, not just for their urban culture but affordability—like San Antonio and the Dallas-Ft. Worth area; the latter features the American Railroad Museum and National Cowgirl Hall of Fame. Days off from travel nursing might even include a jaunt to the Dallas Aquarium and Zoo. If you’re more of a beach family, Galveston, Texas is calling your name!
