Travel Nursing Jobs in Hawaii
Aloha! Have you always dreamed of going to Hawaii, but never had the vacation time, or the money? If you’re a nurse, this dream can become your reality by getting a travel nursing job in Hawaii with Elite Specialty Staffing.
Travel nurses in Hawaii have the best of two worlds. World one: employment, security, pay, and benefits. World two: They’re already in Hawaii! On days off as a Hawaii travel nurse, you can explore an active volcano, surf, scuba dive, swim with dolphins, go windsurfing, or take part in a number of exciting activities in Hawaii.
Get a snorkel and explore the coral reefs on Oahu, following fishes and being tickled by underwater sea plants, or do a night snorkeling tour to watch the manta rays swimming at sunset. Take classes and get into scuba diving, going deeper into the underwater world.
Cliff jumping is a popular activity for travelers in Hawaii. It was once very culturally significant. King Kahekili would challenge his warriors to jump at Puu Kekaa. Puu Kekaa was believed to be a portal to another realm, where the spirits of the dead jump into the afterworld. Now, the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa has a cliff dive ceremony at this spot every evening at sunset. If you prefer to keep your feet more grounded, go hiking through the island jungles or the famous Kalalau Trail that is notoriously treacherous but epically beautiful. In the winter months, whale watching will inspire you. Do a hop-on hop-off tour on a double decker bus to explore Honolulu and its surroundings. For history buffs, you can spend a day exploring Pearl Harbor.
