Why Work a Travel Job in New Hampshire?
Why work a travel nursing or allied clinician job in New Hampshire? If you’re interesting in furthering your career in a different part of the country, but haven’t yet considered the Granite State as a potential location, here are a few great reasons to do so.
1. Embrace a truly unique and historical New England culture.
“Live Free Or Die” is more than a catchy, stirring state slogan. For folks who live in New Hampshire, it’s a proud centerpiece of their centuries-long history. The state offers tons of historical sites to explore from the Colonial and Revolutionary periods. And, as the home of American icons like Robert Frost, Daniel Webster, Dan Brown and Adam Sandler, New Hampshire residents (a.k.a., “Free Staters”) are famously funny, quirky, creative and entertaining, pretty much guaranteeing you some colorful stories and future friends.
2. It’s a great place for the great outdoors.
As a CareerStaff Covid-19 first responder, you’re going to be busy. But you will have off time, and especially if you’re working a night shift, you could find yourself with the daylight hours to enjoy. Luckily, as home to some of New England’s most stunning natural scenery, the Granite State is a great place to explore when the sun in shining.
From the beauty of the White Mountain National Forest to the state’s famous inland hiking trails, there’s no shortage of fun, excitement and exercise, from hiking, swimming, surfing, kayaking, boating and driving. (The
3. Take a holiday from sales tax.
New Hampshire is one of just four states in the U.S.A. that doesn’t impose a sales tax within its borders. While your current state of residence will probably ask you to pay tax on any major purchase you bring home, you’ll still have the chance to save quite a few bucks on everyday purchases (including, maybe, something fun like a kayak rental or a post-assignment vacation rental).
4. There are many available opportunities, especially for travel nurses.
Maybe because it’s a lower-profile state than hotspots like California and Texas, which are lobbying hard to attract travel nurses and clinicians to deal with their own outbreaks, New Hampshire has a high ratio of open travel jobs for its size. If you’re interested in working in the Northeast — whether just for now, or long term — this is a great base.
5. Live the marine and beach lifestyle.
New Hampshire’s day-to-day life is heavy on nautical and marine opportunities. In addition to some famous aquariums and marine preserves, it’s also a great place to rent a boat for a day or weekend. And there are plenty of opportunities to catch a wave, too (the famous McGill brothers recommend Jenness Beach in Rye and the famous “Wall” in Hampton).
6. Work under effective Covid-19 policies.
Although no assignment on the Covid-19 front lines is going to be a cakewalk or entirely free from risk, you may be interested to know that New Hampshire is one of the few states that appears to have the pandemic mostly in hand. Some hospitals are in more urgent need than others — hence our urgent need for travelers. But the state is not operating in crisis mode.
According to independent journalism source InDepthNH, “the state is continuing to see a deceleration of the pandemic, while much of the nation’s coronavirus cases are spiking to more than 60,000 a day … New Hampshire saw 25 new cases announced Thursday.” (That’s Thursday, July 23.)
Bear in mind, of course, that this could — and it’s probably safe to assume that it will — change. But for now, it may be reassuring to know that you’re helping provide patient care in a state that’s already demonstrated a great deal of success in its reaction to the coronavirus.
