Healthcare staffing company, Aureus Medical, shares 5 reasons to take a travel nursing assignment in Arizona

Omaha, NE (October 30, 2014) - Between the warm weather year-round, more than its fair share of allures, and top medical opportunities, Arizona is a great place to relocate. Travel nursing jobs leader, Aureus Medical Group, shares five reasons why travel nurses should take a travel assignment in Arizona.

1. Burgeoning medical opportunity
In Wallethub's "2014 Best & Worst States for Nurses," Arizona was ranked No. 4 in the country. The rankings were based on 15 key metrics that reflect job opportunities, how much competition there is for each position, differences in the workplace environment, and projections for the future. The Grand Canyon State offers burgeoning opportunity that's only expected to grow in the upcoming years. 

2. You can visit the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas in the same vacation
Attracting a staggering 5 million visitors a year, the Grand Canyon is one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders. Mix that with the Entertainment Capital of the World, renowned for its casinos and nightlife, and travel nursing professionals have one unforgettable trip. 

3. Sunshine
Yuma is the sunniest city in the U.S., with more than 90 percent of days filled with sunshine, according to the National Climatic Data Center. This desert city is also the least humid and has fewer days of precipitation than any other city in the U.S. Close behind are Phoenix and Tucson, which average sunshine about 85 percent of the time.
