To Do and See in Nevada

Nevada has desert, mountains, lakes, and big-city excitement. This means plenty to check out on your days off!

The state’s urban crown jewel is, of course, Las Vegas. A city that actually lets you travel the world, with its great pyramids of Egypt, Eiffel Tower, canals of Venice, and more. There’s also a ton of gleefully tacky attractions and loads of bright lights. Roll the dice and do some gambling, get tickets to a concert or theatrical performance, stroll Fremont Street, see the beautiful Bellagio fountains, wander The Strip, and so much more.

Outside of Las Vegas, the crowds are much smaller — just ask Highway 50. It’s nicknamed the “Loneliest Highway in America.” Among the vast stretches you’ll also find plenty to check out though, such as the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Lake Tahoe, Great Basin National Park, Bootleg Canyon, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Fire State Park, the Hickison Petroglyphs, and tons more.

Nevada has a lot of diversity in its cuisine. You’ll find high-end, foodie hotspots and down-home greasy spoons within its borders. Classic Las Vegas faves include shrimp cocktail and steak & eggs. Also, Sin City famously loves a buffet. Enjoy other state faves here like chateaubriand, onion rings, prime rib, bone-in ribeye, burgers, sushi, paella, Thai food, charcuterie plates, tamales, and more.

There are a few things that come to mind when people first think of Nevada: 

  • Deserts; and  

Nevada has all of these things, but there is more to Nevada than “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” 

Nevada has one of the most beautiful landscapes in the lower 48. The deserts, canyons, and pine forests are a treat to explore. The Mojave Desert alone is stunning to behold. Joshua trees are \native to the Mojave Desert so if you see one, you’ll know you’re there.  

For rock climbing enthusiasts, Nevada has around 3,000 different cliffs to climb across the state. Red Rock, in southern Nevada, is known for being one of North America’s best destination climbing locations. But there are so many opportunities to engage in this sport or learn it for the first time.

If you find humidity bothersome, you’ll be glad to know that Nevada has lower humidity and more days of sunshine than most states in the U.S. In this land of extremes, the summers are hot with temperatures up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, while winters can be very cold. 

In winter, you’ll find world-class ski resorts and slopes. Nevada is a great option for many outdoor activities including camping, hiking, and mountain biking. Skydiving also has a large following here. Imagine viewing the deserts and canyons while trying not to focus on how high up you are.

Lake Tahoe, which sits on the border between California and Nevada, is a top destination both in the warmer months and in the winter. The crystal-clear water is great for stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and swimming. The surrounding mountains make for a great hiking experience. In the winter the ski resorts open. In between ski runs you can relax in South Lake Tahoe’s restaurants and lodges while you warm up. 

All those sunny days means more opportunity to do the outdoor activities you love if you can bear the heat in the hottest months.  

Because Nevada receives a lot of tax income from visitors to Las Vegas, overall state taxes are low. The cost of living in Nevada is slightly above average compared to the rest of the States. 

Reno and Las Vegas hold most of the state’s population — and most of its more hedonistic attractions. We won’t judge. Gambling, diverse cuisine, and any kind of entertainment you didn’t know you needed can be found here.

Emergency Room (ER)

Medical/surgical, intensive care unit (icu), labor and delivery, progressive care unit (pcu), cardiovascular intensive care unit (cvicu), case manager, what are your active travel nursing jobs in las vegas.

As the most populated city in Nevada, Las Vegas is a huge draw for locals and visitors alike. As a travel nurse, you’ll find Las Vegas, Nevada, is ripe for opportunity.

Check out our current job listings in Las Vegas on Pronto . To make this search easier for you, it will send you a notification whenever a new position in Las Vegas becomes available.

What Are Your Active Travel Nursing Jobs in Reno?

As the third most populated city in Nevada, Reno is another option to likely find a travel nursing position. To view our travel nursing jobs in Reno, Nevada, visit Pronto to see our current job listings in Nevada.

What Are Your Active Travel Nursing Jobs in Elko?

With a population of a little over 20,000, Elko sits in Northern Nevada. Does a cooler environment and small-town vibe suit you? Visit Pronto and you can immediately begin your job search for positions in Elko, Nevada.  

Which Nevada Travel Nurse Assignments Have The Lowest Cost of Living?

Most, but not all, of the most affordable places to live in Nevada are smaller cities in southern Nevada. These cities fall under the national average for cost of living. Some of these are:

  • Lovelock, NV
  • West Wendover, NV
  • Winnemucca, NV
  • Yerington, NV
  • Fernley, NV
  • Mesquite, NV

Housing For Travel Nurses in Nevada: How Do I Go About Finding Housing?

“ Choosing to accept a stipend doesn’t mean that your recruiter at Trusted Nurse Staffing won’t be there to help you along the way. Connect with us, and we can give you insights into the various areas and even connect you with rental properties used by travel nurses in the past.”

How Do I Find The Best Travel Nurse Agencies in Nevada?

The best travel agencies are the ones that support you at every step of your journey, from beginning the job search to the contract signing, the move to your new location, to ending or extending your contract. The best travel nurse agencies will have your back. 

Where Are The Best Places To Travel Nurse In Nevada?

In Nevada, travel nurse jobs can be found in many cities around the state. We will help you find a position in a city that suits you and your needs. If you prefer the variety and nightlife of Vegas, there are jobs to be found there. If you require a quieter life in a smaller community, we can help you find an assignment to match. 

To save you time, Pronto will also send you updates as new positions become available in the specialty or city you are looking for.  

What Are The Best Things To Do in Nevada For Travel Nurses?

It depends on what you are looking for. Do you wish for that city life? A more relaxed location and a quieter community? 

Something else to consider is what position you want to take that will benefit your career. Travel nursing is a great way to see diverse locations and experience different ways of life, but it is also a great way to work in some of the best hospitals in the country. These experiences can catapult you into better positions down the road and teach you a lot about yourself.

The response time from my recruiter and nurse specialist is amazing! They both have been so great to work with on my first assignment out in California!!! Chad and Samantha both are super caring and very responsive! I already extended my contract with the hospital because of the smooth process. They made the transition from Florida to California a lot loss stressful than I imagined. Would definitely recommend them both!!!

My recruiter, and other staff I have had the pleasure of interacting with, are all so friendly and helpful. My recruiter is responsive, and even reached out while she was on vacation to check on me! I’ve worked with other agencies in the past, but Stability is next level when it comes to making your travel nursing experience as seamless as possible! Special shout out to Lindsay (best recruiter ever) and Tracy. Amazing people to work with.

Brittany J.

My recruiter is very responsive and personable. I have NEVER had any issues with them!! This agency even has PTO! None of my co workers with other agencies have this benefit!! Also the rates are equal or higher than most other agencies!! Everything feels more like family than business and for that I would choose stability over any other agency!! I am so happy I chose to work with them!

Sopheare C.

My recruiter Amanda is amazing and always timely with her responses. Debbie who is my nurse experience specialist who is with me all times of the contract is truly awesome. Love how responsive she is and will answer any and all my questions. Big thanks to Jesse my compliance coordinator for making all the appointments and getting me travel ready. Can’t thank my team enough for all they do. Any question or issue I have they resolve right away. And I love that they breakdown each contract into a spread so you know exactly what your getting for the terms of the contract.

I have been incredibly impressed by the professionalism, ease of communication, ability to have all requirements for onboarding fulfilled in a timely manner, and just overall outstanding service. Lindsay Hernandez is my particular recruiter and she has been a pleasure to work with, as well as all the team members at Stability. I’m looking forward to staying with them for my next assignment. I highly recommend them to my nursing friends, and anyone looking to travel as a nurse!

The best thing about working with Host Healthcare was my recruiter, Chris Murillo. He exemplifies the model for responsive, timely, and enthusiastic service. Chris also makes the effort to develop personal relationships with his clients. This is a man who truly cares about me as a person. Kudos to Host Healthcare for hiring and retaining this quality individual.

I’ve had a great experience with Host Healthcare. Lauren Pollacci is an excellent recruiter and easily the best one I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, she made the entire process painless. She is always extremely helpful with any need or concern I may have. I couldn’t imagine working with another recruiter at this point!
I've been working with Host Healthcare as a travel nurse for three years now and wouldn't change a thing. My recruiter Kat Cook has made the transition from staff nursing to travel nursing so easy. She is always available, listens to the needs of both myself and my wife (travel pair), and finds us the best jobs in the best locations! 10 out of 10 would recommend her and the agency every time.

Highest Paying Specialties in Nevada

Nevada is an interesting state because it is home to two, very large cities, but the rest of the state remains fairly remote.

However, there are still plenty of jobs posted that could potentially fit the bill depending on what kind of contract you are looking for.

Cost of Living for Travel Nurses in Nevada

The cost of living in Nevada can vary depending on the city or region within the state. Generally speaking, Nevada has a relatively low cost of living compared to many other states in the United States. However, certain cities like Las Vegas and Reno can be more expensive due to higher housing costs and demand. Nevada is ranked at number 29 in cost of living from a 2022 survey , which places it very close to the middle of America prices. And, if you were to remove the metropolis of Las Vegas from that data, the numbers would drastically decrease.

The cost of living in Las Vegas will be grossly different than if you choose to take a contract in a rural town in Nevada. However, based on a pull of data ranging from housing to groceries to utilities, Livingcost.org estimates that the monthly average for 1 person to live in Nevada is $2,129. When you consider the current travel rates, that is less than one week’s worth of pay – leaving 75% of your budget to either spend or save, depending on your situation. Nevada also does not have any income tax, so as a traveler who doesn’t have to pay any property tax in the state either, this is a great bonus and allows you to fully capitalize on your earnings.

Pros & Cons of Travel Nursing in Nevada

Pros of travel nursing in nevada.

  • Sunshine – The state of Nevada is one of the sunniest states in America. It averages 210 days of sunshine a year. If you need to escape the winter gloom for a few months, consider Nevada to bolster up your vitamin D levels.
  • No state income tax – If you are looking to make your money go the farthest, you can’t get a better deal than 0 state income tax. With your tax-free stipends for traveling, almost every penny can go into your bank account. Keep in mind, you will still pay federal taxes on your income even if you live in a state that doesn’t have an income tax.
  • Outdoor exploration – Full of mountains and deserts, you can find a wide variety of outdoor entertainment.
  • Central location – Sandwiched between California, Utah, Arizona, and Oregon, there are plenty of opportunities to take a few day trips to explore some of the surrounding areas.
  • Gaming – If you are going to take a contract in Nevada, you might as well live it up and test your luck on the Las Vegas strip.

Cons of Travel Nursing in Nevada

  • Climate – If the heat doesn’t suit you very well, it is probably in your best interest to avoid traveling to Nevada in the summertime. And if you do travel to Nevada, it is in your best interest to pack tubs of body lotion as the dry climate will suck all of the moisture out of you.
  • Education – Nevada is one of the least educated states in America. Only 25% of the population has a college degree, which makes it severely lacking in comparison to other states.
  • Education system – To go hand in hand with a lack of education is a poor education system. The public schools in Nevada have a reputation for being less than average.
  • Vices – Thanks to the gambling and drinking scene that Las Vegas attracts, it can draw a reasonably unhealthy crowd to the city and could make it difficult to control your vices if you know you already struggle with certain issues. If living around certain scenarios would be harmful to your personal progress and goals, Nevada might be a state to avoid.
  • Crime rates and poverty – Nevada has a large population of unhoused people and higher than-average crime rates.

Things To Do on Your Days Off

Probably one of the most obvious things you can do on your days off in Nevada would be to visit Las Vegas and do the classic Vegas agenda items. Even if gambling isn’t quite up your alley of preferred entertainment, Las Vegas always has some world-class shows that perform on a nightly basis as well as world-renowned restaurants and chefs. While in Las Vegas, you could also take a trip down to Red Rock Canyon Conservation area and see some of the natural beauty that rests there. Known as a rock climber’s haven, this park has hiking trails, day picnic areas, and a great loop where you can enjoy the scenery from your car.

Another fun state park to visit is Valley of the Fire. Valley of Fire State Park is known for its stunning red sandstone formations, petroglyphs, and scenic drives. Hiking, camping, and photography opportunities abound in this beautiful desert park.

The Hoover Dam is an impressive engineering marvel that you can take a guided tour to learn about its construction and enjoy stunning views of Lake Mead and the surrounding area. Up in the northern part of the state, Lake Tahoe is a popular year-round destination. Enjoy outdoor activities like boating, swimming, hiking, skiing, and snowboarding. The area also offers scenic drives, cozy resorts, and a vibrant dining scene.

Speak with a recruiter about available travel nursing assignments in Nevada!

Why Nevada?

Nevada is often overlooked. However, there are plenty of hidden gems throughout the state that you can enjoy while on assignment there, and though it still gets chilly in the winter months, you’ll be sure to escape the freezing winters normally found in the midwest or northeast. With the pay and cost of living being fairly average, you still have an opportunity to pocket some decent money while on assignment, assuming you have the self-control not to gamble it all away on your trips to Las Vegas. Consider traveling to Nevada and exploring the mountains, deserts, lakes, and career opportunities it has to offer.

Travel Certified Nursing Assistant Jobs in Nevada (Travel CNA Jobs)

Today, medical facilities rely on traveling nurses for many reasons, such as high employee turnover, strikes, low-staffed departments in need, and crises. The spread of COVID-19 and its variants have also created more demand for traveling nurses. As a result, there is a high demand for travel nurses in many states and countries globally. The high demand for nurses has increased wages for nurses, particularly for certified nursing assistants or CNAs. Although COVID-19 led to low pay rates for nurses in some states, travel certified nursing assistants have many high-paying job options.

Due to the high demand for skilled nurses, if you seek travel CNA jobs in Nevada, remember that although there are many jobs openings, the openings are filling quickly. The available assignment listings also change by the hour. Therefore, to get hired, you will need to update your qualifications and certifications before applying for any travel certified nursing assistant assignment. Your CNA application will likely succeed when you tell the recruiters more about yourself. The recruiters will better match your qualifications and certifications with the assignment options available.

Travel Nursing

Who is a Certified Nursing Assistant?

A certified nursing assistant in Nevada is a state-certified nurse who provides hands-on care directly to patients in various medical settings under the supervision of either a registered nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). As a certified nursing assistant, you will provide care related to patients’ daily and routine living needs, also known as activities of daily living or ADLs. You will also be responsible for monitoring the patient’s health progress and providing other medical staff with daily reports of the patient’s health changes.

What are the Duties of a Certified Nursing Assistant?

As a Nevada certified nursing assistant, you will work with patients requiring basic assistance, such as ensuring patients’ safety take care of themselves while moving around and interacting with their environment. However, you will also attend to patients with life-threatening conditions and elderly patients needing tender care at the end of life stages. Regardless of the type of patients you are attending to, you must understand their specific needs, including their medications, allergies, daily routines, behavioral patterns, and dietary restrictions. Overall, you will be required to know what your patients need to live safely and comfortably when under your care. To successfully perform these duties, CNAs must have great communication skills to help them communicate effectively with the patients and other medical staff.

As a CNA, you will be involved in the routine activities of your patients. Medical staff relies on you to notice and report any patient’s health changes that can lead to major health complications. Therefore, as part of the healthcare team, CNAs play important roles. The job of a CNA will involve the following duties:

● Help patients get in and out of beds ● Help patients with their hygiene ● Assist patients with exercises and movements ● Reposition paralyzed and immobile patients ● Record health changes of the patient ● Monitor patient’s medication, food, and water intake ● Offer compassion to patients, friends, and family

Which are some of the Certified Nursing Assistant Job Titles?

The specific job title of a CNA will slightly change depending on location in which you work and the specific job duties of your assignment. However, you should expect your role’s basic duties and responsibilities to remain consistent from one assignment to the next. As a CNA, your job titles will include Geriatric Nursing Assistant (GNA), State Certified Nursing Assistant (STNA), Patient Care Assistant (PCA), Certified Nurse Aide, or Nursing Assistant. CNAs can apply for certifications in several states. In addition, using state reciprocity, CNAs can become an Interim CNA, what is known as a travel certified nurse assistant.

Duties of a Nevada Certified Travel Nurse Assistant

Certified travel nurse assistants are mobile CNAs who travel to the location of their assignments. Travel CNAs relocate to their assignment’s location for the duration of their contract to provide care and support services to patients. Throughout your assignment, you will stay updated on medical guidelines, offer various clinical services and follow the instructions of RNs and other medical staff you are working under. Your contract as a travel nurse assistant will run for 13 weeks, although you will occasionally extend the contract while caring for certain patients. Although it is not compulsory, you will work with recruiting agencies to find assignments.

Requirements and Qualifications of a Certified Travel Nurse Assistant

To qualify as a certified travel nurse assistant, you will need a high school diploma and undertake a state-approved certified nursing assistant training program. Although you will find many institutions offering CNA training, you must ensure that the chosen institution offers a training program that follows state requirements for your certification. After completing your training, you will sit for a certification exam with the state you wish to practice. When you work as a certified travel nurse assistant, you will enjoy numerous benefits. However, your duties are demanding and have several challenges. For example, you will be traveling to unfamiliar locations away from your family and loved ones. Suppose you are concerned about gaining relevant experience in your career. In that case, traveling to various institutions offers you a wealth of experiences that enable you to build relationships with patients, making your role fulfilling and satisfying.

The federal law requires you to complete at least twelve years of continuous education to maintain your certification. You will also need certifications other than the annual CEU, including a physical exam, tuberculosis screening, and basic life support certification. For your certificates to remain valid, you must maintain them annually. You will obtain these certifications in various institutions, including memory care, medication aide, wound care, and hospice and palliative care. If you want to pursue your career further, you can advance to becoming a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse.

Qualities of a Travel Nurse Assistant

If you want to be successful in fulfilling your duties as a travel nurse assistant, you need to possess the following qualities:

● Excellent communication skills ● Ability to work both independently and under the supervision of other medical staff ● Strict adherence to patient safety and privacy guidelines ● Ability to monitor and report important health outcomes of the patient ● High tolerance levels to care for arrogant and rude clients ● Compassionate
