All RNs Mark your Calendars for the 4th of July and More!
If you’re an RN in New England travel nursing jobs, you’re close to much of the summer action as it unfolds in New York City RN jobs or Tri State area, and as far west as Texas and Oregon nursing jobs. These are a few highlights that are happening across the country. Hopefully, they’ll light your fuse and get you out there for the local fun!
- For RNs in NYC this Summer: The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival is on from June 10 through August 31st. Literature loving RNs can call 845-265-9575 for more information. The Metropolitan Opera is also offering a summer series at various parks July 1 – July 10. However, if you’re looking to move rather than spectate, “Midsummer Night Swing” is being offered at the Lincoln Center in Damrosch Park, with lessons in all kinds of dance. For the 4th of July, count on the tradition of the Macy’s spectacular display best seen from the Brooklyn Bridge.
- For Travel Nurses Summering in New England: This website provides travel nurses in the New England state an A to Z list of things to do! Whether you’re a registered nurse working in Massachusetts, or next door in Vermont, there is no end in blueberry and lobster festivals, live music and plays in the Great Outdoors. The fireworks, in and of themselves, make a trip to Boston worth it! Bean Town fireworks for July 4th light up the sky over the Charles River every year. Massachusetts travel nurses will cherish these summer memories!
- Oregon nurses, Cool Off at the Summer Farmer’s markets! Just about every RN in Pacific Northwest nursing jobs knows about the Grant’s Pass Growers’ Market and other famous outdoor farmers markets spanning Oregon—these fun shopping sprees go from June (when all the rose festivals are in full bloom) through October! Check out your nearest farmers market in Salem, downtown Yachats and Coos Bay. For 4th of July Fun check out Central Oregon’s coast where Lincoln City hosts its legendary fireworks over Siletz Bay!
- Texas RNs Can Find Fun Here This Summer: Texas nursing jobs in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area are especially fun right now, as well-known venues like the Grand Prairie get underway with their annual thoroughbred horse races; their Lone Star Park wouldn’t be the same without it! But the 4th is especially unique here, because of Willie Nelson’s 4th of July picnic. It lights up the Texas sky over the Fort Worth Stockyards. Look for it behind Billy Bob’s Texas, the World’s largest honkey-tonk!
Wishing Travel Nurses an Amazing Summer and Happy 4th of July!
