Phoenix is an excellent destination for a travel nurse looking for a vibrant city and hot weather. As the most populated city in the Southwest, there's a lot going on in sunny Phoenix no matter what you're looking for. If you're hoping to have some outdoor adventures on your next contract, go to Phoenix Mountains Park where you can hike to the top of Piestewa Peak. Being right in the middle of the Sonoran Desert gives travelers the unique opportunity to take a Desert Storm Hummer Tour either during the day or in the dark using night vision.
Travel nurses who double as sports enthusiasts won't have a hard time finding a game in Phoenix. The city boasts Arizona Cardinals football, Phoenix Suns basketball, Arizona Diamondbacks baseball, and Arizona Coyotes hockey, so there is something to cheer on no matter what time of year your contract is.
Being in a city the size of Phoenix also comes with the opportunity to soak up some culture during your contract. Grab your nurse friends on your day off and watch a show at the Phoenix Theatre or check out the exhibits at the Phoenix Art Museum. Phoenix always has a new restaurant or event to check out.
Phoenix has no shortage of events to help you immerse yourself into the culture of the city. Go to Light Up the Sky Festival to see an unbelievable fireworks show in the desert sky, or attend the monthly First Fridays Artwalk, the largest art walk in the United States. When you're ready to take on a nursing contract in this exciting city, give Nurses PRN a call!
