Las Vegas, NV

Whether you're in it for the lights of Las Vegas and Reno or the outdoor recreation and sights throughout the rest of the state, pretty much any type of traveling RN can find a temporary home in Nevada. While its casinos are often the first thing one thinks of, there's a wide variety of ways to explore both the big cities and small town in this Western state. 

If Las Vegas is, in fact, your destination for some time off during a travel nursing contract, you will never be bored. Sin City is known for its countless night clubs and casinos. There is always a spectacle to be seen, whether it's a performance from a legendary singer or world-class magician, or one of many Elvis impersonators. After trying your luck at the casino or seeing a show, go to one of the extravagant buffets that Vegas is known for to get the full experience.

Travel nurses that take a more low key approach to their time off will not be at a loss in Nevada. The state offers impressive sights, gorgeous sunsets, and several opportunities to spend time outdoors. Great Basin National Park, for example, is a popular destination for campers and hikers. You could also stop at the Hoover Dam, one of the most visited landmarks in the United Stated.

No matter what it is that you look for in your travel nursing contracts, we can help you find it in Nevada. This unique state combines natural beauty with city lights in a way unlike anywhere else. Whether you want to spend time away from your contract experiencing Nevada's nightlife, outdoor adventures, or both, give Nurses PRN a call to get started!
