Charlotte is where Southern charm meets big-city life, making it a great place for a travel nurse who wants to experience new things among friendly people. Charlotte is the biggest city in North Carolina and is continuing to grow. Uptown, the center of the action in Charlotte, contains museums, restaurants, parks, and theaters. Uptown's thriving live music scene make it a great destination for you and your nurse friends on a night off.

The opportunities for entertainment in Charlotte vary from sporting events to a huge art scene; no matter what interests you, you'll probably find it. Sports and car lovers head to Charlotte for the NASCAR races at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Speed Street is the biggest celebration in Charlotte. Several streets are closed down for music and events leading up to the NASCAR All-Star race. Nurses doubling as football enthusiasts can cheer on the Carolina Panthers along with the local fandom. 

Charlotte also has a notable art scene with impressive galleries throughout the city, especially in NoDa, the city's historic art district. There's even a "gallery crawl" through the city twice a month. With this much to do and characteristically beautiful weather, you can get the most out of a travel contract in Charlotte. 

While a big city, Charlotte is filled with parks and trees and famous Southern BBQ; it's really the best of both worlds. Get to know the city at events like Taste of Charlotte and Festival in the Park while you take in the beautiful skyline. To find out what's available in Charlotte right now, give Nurses PRN a call!
