Thinking of moving to Michigan? With a population of just under 10 million, the Great Lakes State has a lot to offer PPR travel nurses, from affordable housing to stunning landscapes. The state’s economy has had its ups and downs, sure, but the Wolverine State is still drawing new residents.
One of the largest cities in the area is Detroit. Detroit has gone through some big – and controversial – changes in recent years. The trend of hipsters moving to Detroit has been written about extensively so we won’t dwell on it, except to say that the sprawling Michigan city is changing every day and absorbing new residents drawn to the city’s history, culture and affordable housing.
Love being on the water? Michigan may not border the ocean, but it does have beaches. Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Superior, as well as some of the state’s smaller lakes, provide excellent, sandy beaches that will blow you away.
It’s about time you gave Michigan a chance with a travel assignment with PPR Travel Nursing.

Temporary licenses are currently not valid though typically are for about 6 months which is perfect for travel nurses interested in two or fewer contract positions. If you're looking for longer term travel nursing contracts in Michigan, the permanent license might be the right option for you. Michigan is not a walk through state and is not affiliated with the Nurse Licensure Compact or Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC). The Michigan Board of Registered Nursing is not affiliated with NURSYS. If you run into any trouble applying for or acquiring your RN license in Michigan, feel free to contact us, we'd love to help you get licensed.

Records from several reputable sources claim that RNs working in Michigan earn above the national average. Some major metropolitan areas, such as Ann Arbor, report average salaries as high as $35/hr. 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 Wyandotte RNs upwards of $82,000. The median and mean salaries are both high in Michigan 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 Michigan have even more earning potential.

Demand for qualified registered nurses is at an all-time high in Michigan. Projections for future demand indicate that this demand will continue to increase as the population grows and new nurses come into the field at a slower rate than new positions are opened. This means that most facilities in the state are looking to travel nurses to help fill vacant positions. Some nursing specialties are in higher demand than others. The following RN specialties have some of the highest demand.
