Things to Do on the 4th of July for Travel Nurses
1. Working the Night Shift? Pack a Picnic
Many Travel Nurses work the night shift, so if you’re working the 4th then you may want to enjoy an early breakfast/brunch picnic.
Take all those adorable red, white, and blue recipes you made and celebrate with a picnic in the park.
2. Celebrate at Work
Just because you’re at work doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the holiday! Donning a set of red, white, and blue scrubs brings a bit of the holiday into the hospital.
Celebrating doesn’t just mean going to barbecues. It can also mean adding a little levity to your workplace.
3. Celebrate on the Beach
If you’re lucky enough to have travel nurse assignment near or within driving distance of a beach,
pack up for a fun day in the sun. If you stay until the evening, expect to see fireworks.
4. Explore the local area for the best Firework Viewing Party
Local Newspaper apps and Facebook events can direct you to the cities some of the best local hangout areas for viewing parties.
5. Make new friends with fellow travel nurses!
Speaking of food, why not invite new colleagues to a summer cookout?
Common things bring people together and beyond it being the 4th of July, most other travel nurses are also looking for a small taste of home. Why not host a Travel Nurse Potluck and make new friends from your facility.
How You Can Make the Most of Each Assignment
You worked hard to earn your nursing credentials and get your career started. Now it’s time to put your credentials to work for you. As a travel nurse, you’ll have incredible opportunities to explore countless new places. A nursing job lasts far longer than a typical vacation, which means you can get to know each new city like a local.
Making the most out of each new destination is a process that begins before you travel there. Research your new home in advance and make a list of everything you’d like to do and see while you’re there. Perhaps you’d love to explore the nightlife or immerse yourself in the city’s cultural heritage, art scene, or natural wonders. Be ambitious with your plans; there’s plenty of time to do it all. And if you fall in love with the city and want to extend your stay, just ask about extending your contract. Another great thing about working with Stability is the company’s high rate of contract extensions.
