Denver, CO

Denver is the fastest growing city in the United States for the same reasons that it's a great place for a travel nursing contract. It combines natural beauty and outdoor recreation with all of the culture and excitement that comes with being in the largest city in the Rocky Mountains.

With the amount of art galleries, museums, and parks throughout the city, Denver is a great place to soak up some culture. From the Denver Art Museum to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, there is something to strike the interest of any travel RN.

Denver locals are known for being active, and the city caters to that. If you like to spend time outdoors while on a travel contract, you can venture into the nearby Rocky Mountains for skiing, snowboarding or hiking, or you can stay in the city and go to one of the many parks. City Park, for instance, has lakes, a golf course, and the Denver Zoo. 

When you get a break from your travel contract in Denver, you will have plenty of excuses to grab your nurse friends and explore. Try whitewater rafting, tour one of the many breweries in the city, or go cheer on one of Denver's professional sports teams. If you're ready to make the trip to the "Mile-High City," give Nurses PRN a call!
