Minnesota is the perfect convergence of the skyscrapers and excitement of city life with the natural beauty and adventures of the outdoors, making it a great option for a travel nursing contract. Within the same day, you can take in the bustling action of the Twin Cities and be doing the water activity of your choice on the Mississippi River.

If you are the type of travel nurse that tries to enjoy the great outdoors in your time off, you'll have no problem in Minnesota. No matter what time of year you're there, there are endless options in the "Land of 10,000 Lakes." The North Country Trail is the longest continuous hiking trail in the US, making it a great destination for hikers and bikers. 

The many lakes that give the state its nickname provide the chance to spend your travel contract doing your favorite water sport or trying out a new one. From boating to canoeing to kayaking, the many water features across the state stay busy in the warmer months. Being in Minnesota in the winter is no excuse to stay inside. There's plenty of fresh snow for skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling, or you can go ice fishing on one of the giant frozen lakes.

Named the best place to live in the US, The Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul is a destination that the city-loving nurse can't miss. The Twin Cities contains some of the best museums, theaters, and dining in the Midwest. You can get to know the area through a Twin Cities Food Tour, a three-hour walking food tasting that takes you through the city's landmarks, history, and, of course, cuisine. 

Now and then, a traveling nurse needs to unwind. If you want to do that with some retail therapy at the Mall of America, by taking on the waterways of Voyageurs National Park, or by renting a bike and cruising through the high rises of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota is the place for you to be. Give Nurses PRN a call to find out what nursing assignments we have available!
