High-Paying Travel Nursing Jobs in Iowa

Find Out Why Travel RNs Enjoy the Hawkeye State

Becoming a travel nurse in Iowa, is probably not exactly what you thought of when considering a travel healthcare job. But the truth is, Iowa is a place that people go to and keep going back to; Iowa has been experiencing serious population growth in the last 5 years.

So, what’s so special about the Hawkeye state? Perhaps the most important thing to understand about Iowa is the niceness of the people. Iowa people are warm and friendly, and interested in making connections with people. You will feel welcome and wanted here.

There are lots of things to do in the beautiful state parks. Go horseback riding in the Shimek State Forest, or kayak the Middle River and paddle under the famous Bridges of Madison County. Go shore fishing at Big Creek Lake. If you’re not already a biker, you might be converted. Iowa has a biking trail bucket list, that includes crazy fun bike trails such as the BACooN Ride where the riders are decked out in bacon and pig costumes and taste bacon specialty foods at the stops along the trail. Watch for hawks and eagles atop a 45foot tall observation tower from the Hitchcock Nature Center. Lots of places for challenging and scenic hikes.

Additionally, the cost of living in Iowa is significantly lower than the national average, even in the capital city of Des Moines. Iowa travel nurse pay on top of a lower cost of living makes Iowa an obvious choice.

Des Moines is an exciting city that is growing rapidly, intentionally. The city has spent a lot of time and energy on renovating the historic downtown, investing in trendy clubs, delicious restaurants, and hosting the annual music festival, 80/35. Des Moines keeps growing because these factors combined with buckets of business opportunities are a major draw for people looking to settle down or start over. It is indeed big and growing, but Iowa travel nurses love that they never have to spend an hour in traffic after a shift.
