US Nursing: Savannah


An ICU nurse will discover Savannah is replete with history. Particularly notable are its cobblestoned squares which populate the historic district. At the heart of this picturesque area rises Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist with its generous Gothic inspired architecture. The pedestrian orientation and innovative urban design makes for a calming environment. Emerald tree canopies, quaint cobblestone bring the history to life and imbue this coastal city with considerable charm.

Nurses will find the city blessed with shaded courtyard and dotted with by bistros and galleries. Explore our shops before catching a trolley or carriage tour from the heart of the market. For Savannah’s historic center, City Market is the place to be.

Popular activities include architectural tours which focus on historic waterways, squares, mansions, forts and Revolutionary and Civil War historic sites. City Market is the hub of all activity downtown, situated between Ellis and Franklin Squares. Until the late evening this area pulsates with nightly musical performances. Present also are all kinds of specialty shops and boutiques. Interestingly the Market thrived even after two fires, survived the Civil War and weathered Savannah’s great 1896 hurricane.

Savannah is also redolent with a relaxing lifestyle and pristine seaside resort, specifically Tybee Island, just a 20 minute drive east of the city centre. Stretching for five miles this public beach backed by undulating sand dunes and views across the expanses of the Atlantic Ocean. This location hosts excellent sunbathing, walking, biking, sailing, fishing, or surfing on the rolling waves.
