Whether you envision your next travel nursing contract being spent among America's best views of nature or in a vibrant city, take Idaho into consideration. The state is absolutely gorgeous with its endless mountains, lakes, forests, and rivers, and it features some of the coolest cities in the Rockies. 

If you're a city kind of nurse, you'll love Boise. As the capital and biggest city in the state, there is no shortage of ways to stay entertained. The city revolves around the Boise River on which you can do tons of activities like take an inner tube ride through the city. Boise also houses the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial along with several other interesting museums, galleries, and restaurants. Sports enthusiasts will feel right at home among Boise State fandom. 

As a travel nurse, you don't get a whole lot of time to relax. When you do, you can take advantage of it in one of Idaho's many national parks and reserves. The sprawling land of Yellowstone National Park includes hot springs, gushing geysers, canyons, rivers, and forests. Sit back and enjoy the view or get in there and do some hiking or biking; it's up to you!

Idaho's landscape just begs for you to get outside and enjoy it. The Rocky Mountains are not only great for taking pictures. You can go skiing and snowboarding on the snowy slopes. City of Rocks National Reserve is a unique favorite of hikers with its larger than life boulders and rock formations.  

Travel nurses love trying new things, and there's no better place to do that than Idaho. Whether it's your first time tubing through a metropolis or your first time skiing down a Rocky Mountain, you'll make some amazing memories to take home with you.
