Travel nursing opens up a whole world of opportunities, so it's wonderful news if you are considering. But where should you take your next travel assignment? By far one of the coolest states to visit is California. Diversity, the high life, and perpetual excitement are permanent residents in this state.
An abundance of outdoor activities make California a pleasant place to spend your day. Resorts range from stunning parks to thick forests to spacious deserts. It's any hiker's dream come true, and it can all be found in one state! Los Padres National Forest is one beloved and enlightening site that has provided visitors with an immersive view of Californian wildlife for years. Countless more locations await discovery and clearly set California apart from the other states.
If you're more of a night owl, California's still got you covered with several bars, clubs, and lounges celebrating the nightlife. Live music emanates from such popular spots as the Viper Room. Dance clubs in California host various genres from classic to techno; there is literally something for everyone, whether you like to waltz or grind. Finally, if you're in the mood for enjoying some stand-up comedy, the Laugh Factory is notorious for its witty comedians.
Because California has so much to offer for everyone, it is a definite favorite among travel nurses. When you plan for an assignment here, you plan for an extraordinary adventure - one you'll undoubtedly be talking about for years to come.
