Presque Isle, ME

If you've been hoping to spend your next travel nursing contract along the rugged Atlantic coastline or the natural beauty of lakes, mountains, and waterfalls and eating some of the best food in the country, then you should take Maine into consideration. 

The beautiful, lighthouse-dotted coast of Maine is full of seaside cities and villages with views you’ll never get tired of. Portland, for instance, is a seaside city full of shops, restaurants, and museums, making it a popular tourist stop. You can take a lobster cruise, helping to catch some of the crustaceans that the state is known for, before heading back to land and enjoying a seafood dinner. 

Bar Harbor, a small Maine village, is a popular stop in the summertime with beautiful sunsets and the chance to go sailing or whale watching. When you get some time off, it's a good spot to sample the local cuisine after a day of shopping in its quaint shops. 

Away from the coast, Maine has a varied landscape that lends itself to a myriad of recreational activities. The travel nurse doubling as an adventure seeker would enjoy hiking or biking through the mountains full of waterfall views. Come winter, the mountains become a great destination for skiing or snowboarding. 

Whether you choose to spend your time in the city enjoying Lobster Festival with the locals or in nature whitewater canoeing in one of the beautiful rivers, Maine is worth exploring. If the East Coast is calling your name for your next travel nursing assignment, give Nurses PRN a call!
