Three States Nurses Simply Have to Visit and Explore

As you train to be a nurse, it becomes very clear, very quickly just how intense the program is. Whether you are attending a brick and mortar college in person, or you’ve opted for the popular MSN online program that allows you to earn your masters from home in much less time, it can be an exhausting process. Why not reward yourself with a little getaway where you put your schooling out of your mind and just enjoy your time.

Understandably, if you’re in the middle of your RN to MSN online program you probably don’t have a lot of free time for traveling, which is why you may want to look into a stay-cation of sorts and travel to states within the country. Here’s a look at three states that nurses simply must visit to enjoy that little break they deserve.


The state of Arizona is known for all kinds of wonderful things, but spa retreats and golfing sit near the top of the list. This could be the perfect destination that allows you to relax, unwind, and put all the stress of home away. You can combine daily spa treatments with sightseeing tours, shopping, dining, and a round of golf.

Of course, if you’re going to visit Arizona then you’re going to want to include a visit to Grand Canyon National Park. This is an absolute must-see for anyone visiting the state. Other sights worth checking out include Monument Valley Tribal Park, Saguaro National Monument, and Sedona.

New York

If nature and relaxation aren’t really your thing, then why not go the polar opposite extreme and visit New York State, which is filled with non-stop activities, sights, attractions, shopping, and dining. While many will automatically think of New York City as the place to go, the fact is that this state has fabulous treasures in every corner.

Just some of the things you can discover include over 2,000 miles worth of trails and parks, a huge variety of tours and excursions (especially in New York City), waterfalls, swimming, beaches, hiking, white water rafting, amusement parks, elegant and casual dining, and a vibrant art scene. It’s the kind of state you could visit for a weekend or a whole week and not run out of things to do.


The list wouldn’t be complete without California. California is one of those states that is able to combine all the thrills and high-paced excitement of city life with that of a more laid back, nature-loving atmosphere. The landscape is so varied in this state that you simply can’t experience it all in just one trip. Known for its miles of beaches, mountains, wineries, and trails, it’s a nature lovers’ dream. At the same time, it’s got its fair share of amusement parks, adventure activities, shopping, dining, and all the thrills of touring Hollywood and getting a glimpse at the country’s movie and television hub.

A Fabulous Place to Start

The country is filled with so many states well worth visiting that this list of three is really just meant to be a fabulous place to start your adventures.
