High Job Demand
 

The Midwest is a flourishing and thriving economy for healthcare workers, especially travel nurses. Here it won't be so much will you get another assignment, but which assignment of the hundreds should you choose from? 

Low Cost of Living
 

The Midwest offers a much lower cost of living compared to other regions of the nation. You'll save big money not just on rent, but on everything from the cost of a dozen eggs to a movie theatre ticket to gasoline to dining out,  almost everything is cheaper in the Midwest. 

Industry Leading Pay

Travel nurses at Next Move earn $1,900 per week on average with an average contract length of 13 weeks. Those nurses that work full-time throughout the year earn close to $100K per year, well over the industry average. 

Welcoming Community 

One major stereotype about the Midwest, that is absolutely true, is that the people are really friendly. A Midwesterner will be the first to smile and say hello, bring you a pasta bake during a tough time, and wave you through at a four-way stop. 

Easy Licensing 
 

With several nursing compact states in the Midwest, the application and licensing process to work and live  state-to-state is extraordinarily simple, and Next Move is with you every step of the way.

Amazing Work-Life Balance 
 

Maybe it's the lack of congestion, the open landscape, the slower pace of life, or maybe it's just having a stranger say hello to you. Whatever the case may be, when it comes to work-life balance, many Midwesterners seem to have gotten it right.

KANSAS

Spring, summer, winter, fall, Kansas has it all. 

From the salt mines of Strataca to the hometown of Superman, Kansas was built by pioneers and continues to reinvent itself while still managing to stay true to its heart, proving that Dorothy was right: There really is no place like home.

OKLAHOMA

More than you will ever expect. 

While some of the rural areas might be more of what an out-of-towner expects when they’re thinking “home on the range,” cities like Oklahoma City and Tulsa have become cultural hubs of Middle America in recent years, attracting people from all walks of life.

LOUISIANA

Two parts Southern, one part Cajun, one part Creole. 

The cultural roots are deep throughout Louisiana and are what make this state one of the most distinctive. Everywhere you turn, there is something new to eat, another festival to celebrate, another accent to decipher, more music to keep your toes tapping, and even more wilderness to explore.

COLORADO

Some of the most spectacular natural attractions in the country.

Colorado is filled with friendly people more interested in climbing mountains and drinking craft beer than focusing on the typical stresses of life.  If you’re looking for a state that’s got a growing economy, plenty of outdoor sports, and some of the most spectacular natural attractions in the country, Colorado might be calling your name.

TEXAS

As they say: Everything is bigger in Texas, including the surprises. 

The people of Texas are as diverse as the state is huge. It’s got a population that’s made up of old school cowboys, transplants from around the entire world, a huge Hispanic population, and even a Native American presence. For the most part, expect Texans to be friendly, generous, and community driven people, always willing to help out someone in need.
