What to do during your assignment

Ohio is home to thriving arts and culture, great food, and sports and entertainment galore. There are a wide range of excellent museums, including the COSI science center in Columbus, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, and the Toledo Museum of Art.

For adrenaline junkies, look no further. Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio is the self-proclaimed roller coaster capital of the world and Kings Island is the largest waterpark in the state! You can also zipline through Hocking Hills State Park or raft the Mohican River.

Cincinnati, home of trustaff Headquarters, is well-known for its sports (Reds baseball, Bengals football, and FCC soccer) and its local brewery scene. But if a brewery tour isn't for you, try the donut trail instead!

Getting your Ohio nursing license

Not licensed in Ohio yet? trustaff can help! As part of our services, we offer all our travelers assistance with getting licensed in new states and will reimburse your costs.

Ohio is not currently participating in the nurse licensure exchange. That means even if you currently hold an active compact nursing license, you'll need to apply for an Ohio nursing license before you can work there.

What other travelers are saying about working in Ohio

"I'm in the ICU at a facility just north of downtown. The location is central and easy to get to, and the staff have been very helpful and pleasant. The unit in general is phenomenal. This will be my third extension!"

"I've been shocked by how pretty Ohio is. I was imagining corn fields and farms, but in the eastern part of the state where I'm working now it's huge forests! We've done lots of hiking on our days off."

"It's been a great experience and it's a place I would work full time if I lived closer. I love the management and her eye for organization. There's a diverse group of people employed there and are generally a lot of fun to work with. I will really miss them!"

"There's so much to do around Cincinnati, we've had a blast. It's a lot more metropolitan than I thought. Good restaurants, great nightlife, and lots of events."
