September 2014 Travel Nurse Newsletter
Five for Fall
Whether you call it “fall ” or prefer the more dramatic “autumn, ” it's finally here. ??Tis the season for cozy sweaters, colorful leaves crunching underfoot, caramel apples, warm beverages, jack-o'-lanterns, soup on the stove, casseroles in the oven, football, fall TV premieres, and more pumpkin-flavored delights than you can shake a cinnamon stick at!
So, where do you want to spend this gorgeous season? Check out the best Travel Nurse job locations for autumn 2014.
The Empire State is known for having a gorgeous fall season — whether you're taking in the splendor of upstate New York or witnessing the beautiful changes of Central Park as the Big Apple shifts gears into autumn. The Adirondacks and Lake George areas are perfect for fall activities, like visiting a pumpkin patch or apple orchard, taking a scenic drive or hike, and more. Speaking of scenic drives, Amtrak just announced the return of its vintage “Great Dome ” car to upstate New York this fall. From September 25 through November 4, riders can experience awesome, panoramic views between Albany and Montreal. Click here to see New York Travel Nurse jobs.
Assignments in New York also put you in great proximity to the stunning fall foliage throughout the eastern seaboard. From New York, leaf-peeping hotspots like Pennsylvania and Massachusetts are just a day-trip away. (Massachusetts, in particular, also has tons of great jobs right now — click here to check out Massachusetts Travel Nurse jobs.)
