Travel nursing can take you places—this week we’re highlighting a top destination with ample opportunities available for MedPro candidates: Colorado. For cities large and small, here is the scoop on things to see and do on your latest adventure:
First up is Denver: the capital and most populous city in the great state of Colorado. As a major U.S. city, Denver is chock full of sites and scenes for a traveling medical pro to take in. Located just east of the Rocky Mountains, the Denver skyline is hard to beat. And with 14,000 acres of mountain parks, it’s a dream come true for nature lovers who want the opportunity and diversity that a big city offers. Expect cold winters and plenty of snow—but also enjoy legendary live music venues like Red Rocks Amphitheater, nationally recognized museums, and a few pro sports teams you may have heard of like the Broncos.
From Denver, we’re heading over the mountains and through the woods—literally—down to Montrose, where we have several open Occupational Therapy positions. Montrose is southwest of the vast Gunnison National Forest, and is the perfect location for those that prefer to live a bit off the beaten path. With a population of between 15,000 and 16,000, Montrose features a drier climate, with little snowfall and hot summers. Nearby recreation includes hiking in the Black Canyon, and ski trips to the San Juan Mountains to the south.
For those that like a slower pace, Lone Tree may be for you. With a population of around 5,000 and several nursing opportunities available, Lone Tree is located in the south Metro area of Denver—a bit away from the hustle and bustle but still within striking distance for day trips to the city. Golf lovers will appreciate the challenging 18-hole Lone Tree Golf Course.
If the rural life is for you, Holly should be at the top of your list. On the far eastern border of Colorado, Holly has a population of just around 1,000. At such a small size, Holly will definitely give you a taste of small town life. Bring your banjo: each June, Holly hosts the Holly Days Blue Grass Festival, a three-day outdoor live music event.
