Living and Working

US Nursing: Colorado

Nurses will read that Colorado possesses majestic mountains and wide-open plains together with bustling cities and an invigorating climate.

imagesNurses preferring the warm will welcome more than 300 sunny days a year. Imagine being able to ski in the morning and play a round of golf in the afternoon.

Nurses will find artistic and cultural resources in abundance with both being greatly supported by the private and non-profit sectors. Museums like the Denver Art Museum, Clyfford Still Museum, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center give the state plenty of visual-arts cred.

When a nurse is evaluating a location it’s important to not only look at the quality of life, school system, transportation system and recreational opportunities a state provides but to also look at a state’s overall healthfulness.

Here nurses will find that Coloradans are always ranked among the highest in several health rankings because of their overall healthful habits. Also Colorado’s climate and the splendor of both the mountains and the wide-open plains give the state’s recreational character an extraordinary sense of diversity. Nurses will experience Colorado’s 42 state parks and numerous outdoor recreation areas that provide opportunities for boating, hiking, camping, swimming, snowmobiling, bird watching, picnicking, fishing, hunting and biking.
