Activities As A Travel Nurse Utah

So what activities do travel nurses in Utah do when they’re not working? Travel nurse Utah has plenty of exciting and fun options not just in the capitol, Salt Lake City, but the rest of Utah as well. Utah has many historical sites to see and take in. There are countless museums, memorials, parks and squares in which travel nurses can spend their time in. There’s even a museum of the Beehive House, the house that former president of Mormonism and governor of Utah lived in with his 19 wives and 56 children. There are various other historical Mormon sites in Utah that are worth seeing.

Utah has a rich and interesting history, very closely linked with the Mormon religion. The Mormons arrived in the Salt Lake City area in the mid 1800s and immediately went to work on farming and irrigating the almost uninhabitable lands. Salt Lake City is an example of urban planning, where entire cities are mapped out prior to commencement of building. Salt Lake City still to this day has an organization built upon that original structure.

Aside from the historical and urban side to Utah that’s worth checking out is the incredible beauty of Utah’s nature. With gorgeous mountains and deserts, Utah attracts a lot of adventurous, outdoorsy types. For travel nurses who like spending their time outdoors surrounded by nature, Utah is the place to be. It offers an almost endless amount of outdoor activities including skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, fishing, biking, whitewater rafting, camping and the list goes on. And you can do all these against a backdrop of beautiful snow-capped mountains! Many travel nurses escape the larger city life on the weekends to relax in one of the state’s many national parks where you can camp, hike, and spend quality time with family.

The sego lily is Utah’s state flower, blooming in the summer and filling foothills and valleys with the sights of ivory white petals. Sometimes we forget, but being surrounded by such natural beauty has a substantial positive effect on our happiness and mental health. An interesting fact is that Utah’s early Mormon settlers ate the bulbs of the sego lilies in times of drought to survive.
With an extensive amount of available job opportunities in Utah’s healthcare sector, the state is certainly an attractive option to qualified nurses who are thinking about relocating. Couple that with competitive pay and low cost of living, and it’s a no-brainer. The United States Bureau of labor predicts that by the year 2022, the demand for travel nurses will have risen 19%. Now is the time to get in on an opportunity of a lifetime.
