What better way to experience the Hawaiian Islands than with Hawaii nursing jobs. Being a travel nurse in Hawaii gives you an opportunity to not only expand your career, but to enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer.
It can be expensive to stay in Hawaii. Most travel agencies will pay for your flight, license, housing (big cost) and insurance. This makes it very affordable.
Nursing jobs in Hawaii are available on Maui, Oahu, the Big Island and Kauai, although all specialties aren't available on all islands. It is very easy to catch an inter-island flight or ferry ride to experience the other islands.
Many Hawaii travel nursing agencies want a 13-26 week commitment. This will give you plenty of time to explore all the islands.
Oahu, with the capital of Honolulu, is the largest city on the islands. You have all of the conveniences of a large city. Great restaurants, shopping, museums and the famous Waikiki Beach.
Maui is a bit more laid back. Whale watching, snorkeling, waterfalls or biking down the incredible Haleakala are some fun things to do on Maui.
The Big Island of Hawaii is the largest, but more isolated. There are mountains, beaches and ranches all on one island. You can experience most of the climates that are in the world, right on the Big Island.
Kauai is a small island. Don't let that make you think boring, though. Although there isn't much nightlife available, your days will be full with the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon. Surf, snorkel see waterfalls, hike or just enjoy the sunny beaches. There are several spots on the island where movies have been made.
Be sure to take a trip to see the isolated islands of Molokai and Lanai. There are day excursions or short weekend trips available.
Hawaii nursing jobs aren't perfect for everyone, but if you are considering it, be sure to check out the Hawaii Board of Nursing for all of the licensing requirement to take a travel nurse assignment in Hawaii.
