Nurses in the USA will find a state that is proud of its pioneer heritage. This is very clear in a strong work ethic and drive for success. Nurses will find that the state offers a business-friendly environment, indeed one of the best in the country. Geographically nurses will see that Nevada is accessible to millions of people in the western region of the United States. It has two international airports and a network of major interstate highways making travel to and from Nevada easy. Ã”Ã‡Â¿Living in the “Silver State” offers the excitement and sophistication of urban areas, or peaceful, hometown living in one of Nevada’s burgeoning rural communities. Nevada enjoys four distinct seasons and the sun shines more than 300 days per year and even crisp, white winter days are typically sunny.
Nurses will find dramatic scenery, geologic wonders and historic mining towns. Wildlife includes deer, horses, antelope, and burros roam the vast central Nevada valleys. Walker Lake is the remnant of a huge prehistoric sea, and is now popular for fishing and water skiing. Century-old ranches in the valleys are filled with livestock and fields of hay.
