“I would love to take my next assignment in Baltimore, Maryland.  Not only are there amazing historical sight-seeing tours of Baltimore on the ground, but also up in a helicopter!” – Sarah, Recruiter

“”I would definitely take my next travel assignment in Baltimore! A must-see is the Inner Harbor and all the museums. If you run out of things to do (which you won’t!) the nation’s capital is less than an hour’s train ride away. Plus, who doesn’t love good crab?!” – Ryan, Recruiter

“I would love to head to Baltimore for my next assignment and enjoy some of the most amazing fresh seafood. There is nothing better than relaxing near the Inner Harbor, enjoying some steamed Blue Crab and oysters, all while enjoying amazing views of the city.” – April, Recruiter

2. Norfolk, VA

“I would love to take my next assignment in the 400-year-old port city of Norfolk, VA. I’d visit all the historic sites starting with Fort Norfolk, the last remaining fort authorized in 1794 by President George Washington. I would also ensure I have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful Virginia Waterfront!” – Brooke, Recruiter

“If I could choose, I would say Norfolk, VA. How can you complain about spending 13+ weeks of being right next to the ocean? Between warm weather, fresh seafood, and being able to go to the beach anytime you want, Norfolk would absolutely be my top pick.” – Steven, Recruiter


3. Milwaukee, WI

“Where else can you be on one of the Great Lakes, enjoy baseball and the hidden gems that are their museums?  The Milwaukee Art Museum has the largest collection of Georgia O’Keefe paintings, as well as an amazing Picasso sculpture.  Downtown is the Milwaukee Public Museum that has an incredible diorama city showcasing all the city’s history in the industrial age.  Round out your stay with not only the Harley Davidson Museum, but brewery tours with over 9 breweries to choose from.” – Jaimee, Staffing Specialist

“I would love to take my next assignment to Milwaukee, WI to visit the beautiful Lakefront. There are so many fun lakefront activities such as jogging, biking, bike and kayak rentals to enjoy that beautiful scenery, or you could even take a nice relaxing swim.  You can visit the Milwaukee Brewer’s Stadium, Mitchell Park Domes, Harley Davidson Museum, and the Milwaukee Art Museum by the lake. You could visit the many Breweries for a tour, on your off days of course😊. If you have a sweet tooth you can visit some famous custard places such as Leon’s Frozen Custard Drive-in or Kopp’s Frozen Custard.” Milwaukee is centrally located from Green Bay WI and Chicago, IL where there are many additional activities to do and see such as Lambeau Field Home of the Green Bay Packers where you can  get a Cheesehead, or  see Navy Pier, Millennium Park or Shop the stores of Michigan Ave in downtown Chicago.” – Jenny, Clinical Nurse Manager

“Minneapolis, MN offers so much art and culture and a chance to see iconic music venues, such as First Avenue!  Rated one of the top ten cities for live music, the music-loving travel nurse can experience all genres of entertainment and that classic Minnesota Nice!  Don’t forget to visit the Walker Art Museum and the famous sculpture gardens as well as the Landscape Arboretum in nearby Chanhassen.” – Jaimee, Staffing Specialist


5. Des Moines, IA

“I would take a travel assignment in Des Moines, IA. Is there anything better than a Midwest summer? I would spend my free time checking out the Downtown Farmers Market before I grabbed a coffee at Scenic Route Bakery for a stroll through the Clare & Miles Mills Rose Garden. Also hoping the Iowa State Fair won’t be canceled because I’d love to have a corndog while at the Keith Urban concert!” – Kiana, Marketing Director
