Travel Nurses Exploring California

California. No other state garners as much admiration among travel nurses as the Golden State.

We’re proud to have not only played a part in providing exceptional care to patients along the West Coast but to also provide travel RNs with the adventure of their lifetime.

California is unique in that it has several major metropolitan areas that are often much larger than any other city in the nation. Whether you're looking at Los Angeles area, San Fransisco, San Jose, Sacramento, San Diego, Fresno (or any other large city in California) you're going to find a lot of large, state-of-the-art hospitals & medical facilities. These areas offer it all. They have urban adventures abound with dining, sight seeing, night life, art & culture for every preference. There are also outdoor adventures just outside of town in the form of wine country, mountains & hiking, surfing & beach life, etc. Some of the highest demand for travel nurses exists outside of the main metro areas. Many travel nurses opt for these locations because you don't have to participate in the hustle and bustle of a big city but you still get to enjoy the exceptional weather, spectacular landscapes, and all the views & adventures that California offers. If you're interested in pursuing a position as a travel nurse in California, check out our jobs or apply today.

Records from several reputable sources claim that RNs working in California earn well above the national average. Some major metropolitan areas, such as Los Angeles, report average salaries as high as $90,000/yr. Even sources like Indeed, which only report on salaries offered for open positions (often closer to entry level rather than senior positions) report higher than average salaries for RNs. The median and mean salaries are both high in California but the highest-earning positions often offer at or above $100k per year. This is super enticing to travel nurses who have a great opportunity to increase their earning potential. Since most living expenses are paid for or reimbursed travel nurses working in California have even more earning potential.
