When choosing a travel nursing contract, it can hard to decide whether you want to spend your free time among natural beauty, city lights, or sandy beaches. New Jersey is a great option for a travel nursing contract because it has all of the above and more.
Travelers looking to relax will probably head to the Jersey shore where they can find miles of sandy beaches and eclectic boardwalks along the Atlantic Ocean. Since it's a popular tourist destination, there are plenty of ways to entertain yourself along the shore from shows to restaurants to water sports.
New Jersey holds several exciting cities where you can soak up some culture while on your nursing assignment. Atlantic City, for instance, is a fun stop if you want to try your luck in one of the casinos or people watch on the boardwalk. Head to Newark with your nurse friends to catch a show at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. If you feel like exploring outside of the state, go to Jersey City, where a short ferry ride will get you to New York's Statue of Liberty.
If you prefer unwinding in nature to the city life, you won't have a hard time. The Delaware Water Gap runs through the state and includes 72 miles of the Appalachian Trail. It's a perfect stop for hikers and campers. You could even try rafting on the Delaware River.
As a travel nurse, you're always looking for ways to get to know your surroundings. Your time in New Jersey will be filled with festivals and fairs such as Surf & Turf Seafood Fest in Oceanport and Hollystock Music and Arts Festival in Mount Holly that will give you the chance to acclimate and experience everything the state has to offer. If this sounds like the next place for you, give Nurses PRN a call!
