Northeast

Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean & Canada you’ll find the populous (and popular) region of the Northeast. Characterized by mountainous terrain, rolling hills, valleys & rivers, the Northeast is an outdoor traveler’s dream. If you’re looking for more urban appeal, travel to New York City, NY, Boston, MA or Philadelphia, PA for decadent eats, entertainment & nursing opportunities!
