Why Nurses Love Working in Tennessee

When most people think of Tennessee, they may first think of the state's cosmopolitan capital city, Nashville, TN, home to the Grand Ole Opry and a launchpad for dozens of country music legends. Although the state has played a significant role in the U.S. music industry, it offers many travel nursing benefits outside the hallowed walls of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Graceland in Memphis, or Dollywood in Pigeon Forge.

Tennessee has more than 130 hospitals and satellite institutions dedicated to serving people who live in the state's rural communities. It has a diverse population, which offers opportunities for travel nurses interested in providing care to underserved minority groups.

Several of Tennessee's cities are among the fastest-growing in the country. Many people are relocating to Nashville and other Tennessee areas due to its many benefits, including job opportunities, low cost of living, mild weather, and natural beauty. Travel nurse assignments - typically 13 weeks in length - are a great way to experience the Tennessee way of life while determining your long-term career path.
