Aureus Medical, a nationwide leader in healthcare staffing, shares 5 spring break locales for the travel nurse

Omaha, NE, (March 24, 2014) - If the never-ending winter has you feeling a bit cabin feverish, consider putting your travel nursing vacation days to use on a spring break getaway! Travel nursing jobs leader, Aureus Medical Group, shares 5 spring break locales to consider as a travel nurse.

Even if you have to plan a last-minute trip, a weekend to one of these destinations will truly rejuvenate you:

Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon National Park is a wonderful locale to take a break from the hustle and bustle on travel nursing jobs. Spring is the perfect time of year to visit this natural wonder, as the winter months leave the 1,800-meter-deep gorge frigid and the summer brings unbearable heat, according to CNN Travel.

Portland, Ore.
Portland is an ideal spot for springtime vacationers who are interested in exploring a reasonably priced destination and activities that aren't on the beach. Here, you'll find microbreweries, bike tours and the free Portland Passport – a coupon book that provides you with discounts to area hot spots. This is a great place to put your hard-earned travel nurse salary to use.

Washington, DC
While the nation's capital may not seem like your ideal destination for a getaway this spring, you might be surprised. Washington, D.C. starts April with a bang as its two-week Cherry Blossom Festival kicks off the season. You can also keep entertainment on the cheap side since there are 19 free museums located in the city.
