5 Great Warm Weather Destinations for Travel Nurses

One of the many benefits of travel nursing is that you can choose job destinations and geographies that appeal to you based on the weather.  HawaiiFrom some travel RNs, Winter can really take its toll. The cold, ice, snow, and lack of sunshine can really be a turn off for those nurses that prefer warmer climes.   For some travel RNs, the winter weather can really have a negative effect on overall mood and behavior. Shorter and colder days usually means people spend more time indoors and have a tendency to become less active. Our bodies also produce more melatonin when the sun sets and that makes us sleepy. Lower energy levels can also be attributed to our primitive instinct to eat heavier, heartier meals—like in survival times.

So, if you’re a travel nurse that’s not ready to hit the slopes or pull on those snow boots any time soon, then you may want to consider your next assignment in one of these areas.  Here are 5 great warm weather travel nursing destinations that the Go Healthcare Staffing team has compiled that you want to explore for your next assignment.  Our criteria for the list includes: comfortable temperatures, dry weather, and mainly clear skies – and we currently have available assignments in all these cities!
