We have many exciting healthcare jobs open, and every now and then we like to highlight one of the travel nursing opportunities we have available, as well provide an overview on the location and all it offers.

This week, it’s a 13-week assignment for a night-shift labor and delivery nurse in a hospital in San Jose, California.

As a labor and delivery nurse you’ll help women before, during and after they give birth to their children. You’ll monitor both mother and baby’s health during the birth process. You’ll probably assist doctors and other nurses to administer pain medication and perform epidurals, episiotomies and C-section deliveries, and more.

The city of San Jose is located about an hour or so south of San Francisco, offering a warmer (less foggy) climate than its bay side sister. San Jose is located at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay and only a short drive away from the Santa Cruz Mountains. While there, be sure to take advantage of all culture, sporting events, shopping opportunities.

While in San Jose, you won’t want to miss the San Jose Flea Market, the Lick Observatory, Raging Waters, The Tech Museum of Innovation, the Winchester Mystery House, Japantown of San Jose. These are all great places you should explore during your downtime.

Why should you take this assignment?

Your skills are much-needed to our hospital’s staff, as well as their expectant mothers and newborn children. Contact a MedPro Healthcare Staffing recruiter today to learn more about this and other great travel nurse opportunities.
