Grand Rapids, MI

Containing natural beauty with more shoreline than any other state in the continental US and one of America's biggest metropolises, Michigan offers everything that travel nurses look for when searching for an assignment. The many state and national parks and forests make Michigan a mecca of outdoor recreation, and cities like Detroit and Ann Arbor add urban excitement and unique culture. 

Being right at the center of the Great Lakes region, nurses traveling to Michigan will get plenty of opportunities to relax on the water by fishing, sailing, canoeing, boating, or even surfing the waves of Lake Michigan. If you have a contract during the winter months, the lakes are just as busy with ice fishing. You could also go to the snowy hills for some skiing, snowboarding, or sledding. 

During a travel contract, some nurses prefer to spend their free time among the city lights. If this sounds like you, you'll love exploring Detroit's historic buildings and world-class museums and theaters. As the origin of the auto assembly line and Motown music, Detroit has an identify all its own. Go on a Great Lakes Cruise to see the city skyline from the water or shop the Eastern Market, the largest open air market in the US. Sports fans will be right at home and can cheer on the sport of their choice right in the city. Near Detroit, Ann Arbor is a fun university town known for being a center for art and culture with some of the most gorgeous changing seasons in the Midwest.

Michigan is a perfect place for a traveling RN to acclimate to their surroundings through the various fairs and festivals that showcase and celebrate the state throughout the year. Music lovers should stop at Paradise Valley Music Festival for some live local musicians. Michigan Lavender Festival celebrates local artisans and farmers and has tons of family-friendly activities. 

Whatever it is you're looking for in your travel contract, there's a good chance Michigan has it. If you're looking to take in some views, whether it's the Great Lakes and the lighthouses along their shorelines (Michigan has more than any other state), the historic Detroit skyline, or Ann Arbor's tree-lined streets, give Nurses PRN a call!
