Welcome to Phoenix, Arizona, where snowbirds flock to escape the cold winter, adventurers fly to enjoy the splendor of the mountains, and foodies gather to enjoy a taste of the local restaurants. There is a little something for everyone here in Phoenix, and lucky for you, we’ve got some great Travel Nurse positions open this winter!

Warm up this Winter

When the rest of the U.S. is buried in snow and frigid temperatures this December, Phoenix will stay mild in the 60’s and 70’s and sunny 80% of the time. Catch up on some vitamin D by the pool or travel a little ways outside the city and enjoy the warmth as you walk around the outdoor MesaMarket.

Foodies in Phoenix

Eventually, you’re going to have to get up from the pool in search of sustenance. What better way to sate your hunger than to visit some of of the best and quirkiest restaurants in Phoenix.

Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Matt’s BIG Breakfast and Over Easy seem to have Food Network’s Guy Fieri drooling over breakfast.  Matt’s features The Chop & Chick – Two eggs and a skillet-seared Iowa pork rib chop. But it’s not limited to breakfast, they also have a classic American lunch menu with a Ruben, Burger, BLT, and Chili Bowl. At Over Easy, there really is just two words you need to know : Waffle Dogs. Also one of Fieri’s favorites, this dish of breakfast sausage coated in fluffy waffle batter and fried to hot perfection will have you asking, “When is second breakfast?”

Phoenix, Unplugged

Ready to unplug from the hustle and bustle of city life and work off some of those breakfast calories? Whether you’re a camper, hiker, climber, or a wildlife enthusiast, Phoenix offers 33,000 acres of dessert preserves, 180 miles of trails, and 7 mountain ranges for your exploring pleasure. Don’t feel like walking? Just take a note from our travel nurse, Rhedah Ingram, and hop on a four-wheeler!
