Hey travel nurses, if you’re looking for your next assignment you may want to consider Dallas, Texas for your next destination. When most travel RNs think of Dallas, they may think of the Cowboys football team or (if you’re old enough to remember the 80’s!) the old TV show featuring JR and Sue Ellen. In addition to Dallas’s contribution to “pop culture”, the city itself is a vibrant landscape of shops, restaurants, history, nightlife and thriving businesses. But Dallas also offers some great “free” access to some fabulous public sites that any travel nurse would enjoy. Here’s our top 4 free things Travel Nurses should see in Dallas:
