Aureus Medical Group (web:, a nationwide leader in healthcare staffing, announces three of the hot destinations for those working in the field of travel nursing. A career as a travel nurse offers an RN the opportunity and flexibility to travel as a contract healthcare professional and choose assignments that fit her personal and professional goals. Several locations are especially appealing to travel nurses during the summertime due to weather, recreation, and cultural offerings.

1. New England – There’s nothing like a New England summer, with sunny skies and an 80 degree average temperature. Boston boasts many summer festivals and famous destinations in close proximity such as Plymouth, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. The history in New England is as rich as the clam chowder that it’s famous for. A lobster roll is another must have when exploring New England.

2. California – The laid back surfer lifestyle of Southern California provides a tranquil retreat from hurried cities, while the chic atmosphere of Northern California cities such as San Francisco attracts visitors from all over the world. From surfing in Malibu to tours of Sonoma vineyards, California is an ideal destination for a travel nurse who wants to achieve a work-life balance. Plus, California’s offers warm and comfortable temperatures without the humidity. Take a surfing lesson in Malibu or tour the vineyards of Sonoma during time away from the clinic or hospital.

3. Eastern Shore – This natural area is one of the most beautiful in the country with many opportunities for outdoor recreation. It includes parts of Virginia and Maryland and features some of the nation’s best seafood. The crab is especially fresh and quaint historical communities pepper the region. One such community, Chincoteague Island in Virginia, is located near Assateague Island National Seashore – a park where wild horses roam free along the surf.
