4 Places You Should Take Your Next Travel Assignment

Female Road Trip

Trying to decide where your next travel assignment should be can be a challenge, especially when not every location is a major city you’ve already heard of. If you know a little bit more about what a place has to offer, you’ll be one step ahead. Here are four exciting options to consider:

1. Marshfield, Wisconsin. Die-hard autumn fans should look no further than the compact state of Wisconsin. Spend your days off visiting apple orchards and pumpkin patches (pumpkin spice everything!), enjoy the stunning fall foliage, or even drive over and catch an NFL game at either the legendary Lambeau Field, home to the Packers, or the brand new Vikings stadium in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Wisconsin has great pay rates (Marshfield rates are currently around $61 per hour for MSSI), low cost of living, and takes less than two weeks to get licensed in!

2. Fresno, California. Cooler temps aren’t for everyone, so travel to Fresno where the average temp in November stays around the 60s. This city is home to its very own zoo, regional parks, underground gardens, multiple museums, vineyards and more. Travel nurse pay packages with MSSI are currently $65 – $71 per hour.

3. Norfolk, Virginia. Norfolk, or Naw-fok if you prefer, is one of America’s Top 5 Favorite Cities, an award from Travel + Leisure. With 144 miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, Norfolk is also one of the country’s most historic cities and home to the world’s largest naval base.  History buffs will enjoy incredible trails and museums, famous houses, old churches, war memorials, and for anyone looking for even more, Williamsburg is only a one hour drive away. MSSI travel nurse pay packages are currently around $50 per hour. To see what travel nurse assignments we currently have in Virginia, click here.

4. Seattle, Washington. A buzzing metropolis situated in possibly one of America’s most beautiful places, Seattle is a bucket list city for any travel nurse. Capitol Hill, the Waterfront, Downtown Seattle, the San Juan Islands, Summit Lake, Chinatown… these places are only a small selection of the area’s attractions. So whether you’re a self-proclaimed foodie, have a passion for fashion, or are just looking for a little adventure, a 13-week assignment is a must! Travel nurse pay packages are currently around $48 – $53 per hour. To see what travel nurse assignments we currently have in Seattle, click here.
