Do you love to travel? Are you passionate about caring for others? Do you know the Benefits of Travel Nursing?  If you’re considering working as a travel RN, travel LPN, or travel CNA (or already work as a travel nurse), chances are you’re a compassionate, intelligent person who’s also been bitten by the travel bug.

With offices in West Lebanon, New Hampshire, and South Burlington Vermont, travel nurses who work for TLC Nursing are well-situated to enjoy all the area has to offer!

Whether you’re new to travel nursing or considering a change in locale, here are just a few of the reasons why a position with TLC Nursing in New England should be at the top of your list.

Work For An Employer You Can Be Proud Of

Work In Some Of The Nation’s Best Hospitals And Healthcare Facilities

U.S. News recently highlighted the best hospitals in the nation. On the list? Several of New England’s hospitals, including Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

TLC Nursing partners with many other top-notch hospitals and healthcare facilities, including The Vermont Veterans Home, Mayo Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, University of Vermont Medical Center, and Northwest Medical Center, among others.

Not only can you be assured of a position with a company that provides quality, compassionate care to all its partners and patients, but you’ll have the opportunity to explore all the fun and interesting things that New England has to offer while you’re there!

Explore The Great Outdoors

When you’re not providing excellent care to patients, you can take advantage of the abundance of natural beauty the New England area has to offer. From the Atlantic coastline to the Green Mountains and Lake Champlain in Vermont, opportunities for exploring nature abound.

Another benefit of staying in New England, depending upon how long you’re there, is that you can take advantage of all four seasons. Go apple picking and take in the legendary foliage in the fall. In winter, enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or just cuddling up inside with a good book. Spring provides the perfect time to take in the region’s milder weather. And in summer, swim, explore the coast, or learn to sail.

With so much to do, you’re sure to find plenty of ways to refresh and recharge in your free time before continuing your important work as a travel nurse.

Enjoy A Day Trip

One of the best things about New England is its relatively small size (just a quarter of the size of Texas!) This means that it won’t take you long to visit some of the amazing activities the region has to offer.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Tour some of the over one hundred and fifty lighthouses that dot the coastline.
  • Try a whale watching tour.
  • Learn how maple syrup is made.
  • Visit the region’s best museum, including its famous living history museums.
  • Explore the Atlantic coast.

Live Some History

In Boston, visit the Freedom Trail, the Boston Tea Party Museum, the harbor, or Fenway Park.

While you’re in Massachusetts, don’t forget to head to Martha’s Vineyard. Salem is another stop to consider if you’re interested in learning about the witch trials that took place in New England across several towns and villages. (You may just come away with a renewed appreciation for how far our healthcare system has come!) And of course, be sure to stop at Plymouth Rock, the symbolic stepping stone to the New World.

In New Hampshire, don’t miss the Portsmouth Harbor Trail, which connects more than seventy of Portsmouth’s historical sites and scenic attractions.

And in Vermont, take in must-see historic sites like the homes of former presidents and other historic figures.

Chow Down

Nursing is hard work! If you’ve worked up an appetite and love seafood, there are few places better to satisfy your craving than New England. What’s more, most of the seafood is served fresh – often with an accompanying ocean view. From lobster boils to New England clam chowder to crab cakes, you’ll have your pick of excellent fare to try during your stay.

Whether you’re already in love with the idea of skiing in the wintertime, hiking, boating, and swimming in the summer, or hitting the historical sites that enrich New England, you’re bound to find something in this fantastic region that ignites your passion almost as much as nursing.
