One of the many benefits of being a travel nurse is the opportunity to see the country and take advantage of what each city has to offer every 13-26 weeks. When most travel nurses think about where they’d like to travel, larger cities or tropical destinations like Hawaii often come to mind first; but going where you never imagined you’d go is part of the adventure! Mississippi is state that is often overlooked as a travel nursing destination.

The Natchez Trace Parkway provides a near-continuous greenway from the Southern Appalachian foothills of Tennessee to the bluffs of the Mississippi River.
