Sidney, Montana

Called "Big Sky Country" for a reason, Montana is a must for a travel nurse seeking gorgeous views. It's the place to be for the thrill-seeker, as Montana natives and visitors do not spend much time sitting around with the abundant nature and outdoor adventures available to them. 

One of the greatest sources of scenery and fun in Montana is its location among the Rocky Mountains. The mountain peaks lend themselves to hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and even horseback riding. As a travel nurse, make sure to spend some of your free time just taking in the mountainous skylines. 

With the untouched nature of Montana come several waterways that offer tons of options for activities including whitewater rafting, boating, and fly fishing. Many rivers in Montana are perfect for what locals call "floating," which is exactly what it sounds like, sitting on a tube and floating along the gentle rapids of the river. 

Montana is a great place to experience the rich history of the northwest. There are several options in Montana to take part in an interactive experience where you can actually ride a covered wagon across the prairie, cook over on open fire, and possibly be held up by bandits. 

Whether you choose to sit back and encounter Montana by taking pictures of the sprawling views or actually get in there and ride a horse through the Rocky Mountains, you will be in awe of the beauty that surrounds you and the pride Montanans take in Big Sky Country. If this sounds like the destination for your next travel contract, give Nurses PRN a call to get started!
