Nurses - the East Cost beckons you to Massachusetts for your next travel nursing assignment.  Massachusetts features everything and more, so you’ll have no trouble finding something to do or enjoy. One of the first things that you should do when you take a new nursing contract in Massachusetts, that other states don’t have, is whale watching. It’s not everyday you get to see and watch whales in their natural habitat. If you prefer your ocean creatures behind glass, that's okay too - check out the New England Aquarium! This aquarium features a huge variety of beauftiful underwater animals to gaze at, but also offers an IMAX 3D theatre if you're looking for something a little different.

If you’re a nurse that loves their sports, Massachusetts has some of the best teams in the country with the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, and the Boston Bruins. That’s a lot of great teams to watch and enjoy with your nursing buddies on a weekly basis. Looking for an event to actually participate in and test your will and determination? Then the renowned Boston Marathon is where it’s at. This is the world’s oldest annual marathon and a tradition in Boston for more than 112 years.

If you’re in the mood for a bit of history then there’s a lot to for nurses of all ages to explore. You’ll want to check out the JFK National Historic Site, the JFK Library and Museum, and especially the Boston Tea Party reenactment, which takes place in Boston Harbor every December. If you’re in the mood for an event, and it happens to be July 4th, then the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is definitely where you want to be. This famous event features a live performance by the Boston Pops Orchestra, and concludes with a spectacular fireworks display. 

That’s Massachusetts in a nutshell, and that’s not even mentioning Boston cream pie, Boston Lager, and the Boston Food Tours. Make sure you come out and check out all that Massachusetts has to offer on your next travel nursing assignment. Call us now to find out what RN positions are available in your specialty.
