Let’s be honest. Nurses are rockstars. And rockstars get to work where they want, when they want. The unique skillset allows RNs to work across the country, and that flexibility means you can pick the right state based on what matters to you: income, housing, ratio of nurses to hospital beds, etc.

Whether you’re looking for your first gig and want to pick somewhere that your skills are specifically in demand, or you’re thinking you need some new scenery after a 12-hour night shift, your options are nearly endless.
