A summer playlist

Need some new beats to jam out to? As travel nurses, your life is constantly changing, so why not switch up your playlist along with it? Whether you are sitting around the pool or on your way to another adventure, good music is a must wherever you go. We have come up with a few different songs to put together whether you’re working on the job or on your way to your next assignment.

Starting off our playlist are true classics for any nurse:

The early 2000s was a classic time for many. The age of low-rise jeans, peak alternative rock music, flip phones, and unnecessary layers of bright-colored clothes. What a time to be alive! We have compiled some of our all time faves on Spotify for any nostalgic nurse to throw back at work or home.
