Santa Fe travel nursing jobs are in the oldest capitol city in the U.S. and a literal and figurative hotspot for retirees, artists, writers and travel nurses! The city is part of the greater Albuquerque-Santa Fe-Las Vegas area offering a unique southwestern culture. CBS Moneywatch listed Santa Fe as one of the “Top 10 Places to Retire” and it is a UNESCO-designated “Creative City in Design, Crafts and Folk Art.”
Temperatures in this area of New Mexico are typical with hot summers reaching highs of 100 degrees and cooling off to the mid-40s in the winter with 320 sunny days annually! The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are ideal for hiking in the summer and, in winter, hit the slopes at Ski Santa Fe, just 16 miles from the city center.
Food lovers on Santa Fe travel nursing jobs will want to visit the “Compound,” a Chef Mark Kiffen restaurant who is declared the “Best Chef of the Southeast” by the James Beard Foundation. Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen serves authentic Mexican along with 300 varieties of tequila, said to be a favorite dining spot of Robert Redford! New Mexico-style breakfasts serve burritos and huevos rancheros and licensed food stands dot the landscape offering beef fajitas, tacos and burritos for travel nurses on the go.
