My favorite places so far are Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico and South Carolina.
What is your favorite thing about travel nursing ?
I tend to pick places that have a lot of outdoor activities, particularly skydiving, kayaking, and camping.
What advice can you give others who are interested in travel nursing?
Advice I would give:
- stay on top of continuing education
- pick a recruiter you trust
- pack only what you need
- keep an open mind
- don't be scared to do things by yourself!!
