You're a nurse who wants to improve your standing in the medical community but have fun doing it. You like to hold nothing back, whether on the job or enjoying a little free time. You want Adventure - capitalized. You know you're ready for a travel nursing assignment and you want it to be one you'll cherish and remember forever. Maybe the state that's right for you is exotic Florida!
What better place to enjoy yourself than the Sunshine State itself? The resorts here are infamous - Florida beaches alone are some of the greatest sites for unbridled fun in the entire nation. If you're single and enjoy being out in the sun with a variety of the most attractive men and women even outside the United States, South Beach is perfect. Travel to Vero Beach if you were a pirate in your past life, or inquisitive enough to unearth Spanish gold in general. For nurses dreaming of total relaxation after work, Vedra Beach is the ultimate paradise where you can be treated like royalty.
Enthralling dining and clubbing await in hotspots like ICEBAR Orlando, the chic and chilly counterpart of a regular bar, or Pirate's Dinner Adventure, where you can watch intriguing story and bold acrobatic feats while you eat. You'll also find exquisite performances at the popular Ballet Florida, known internationally for its high-end and fearless dance displays.
There's energy all over this rewarding state, enough to boost your spirits and more than likely linger with you long after your travel assignment comes to an end. For a travel nursing experience like no other, Florida is an extraordinary destination.
