A travel nurse assignment in Illinois will place you in one of the most underrated states in the U.S. If you’ve been wanting to find a position in a new location in travel nursing, Illinois is worth a second look.
Illinois is home to many American icons:
Illinois is 80% farmland with Chicago the most populous city in the midwest and the third-largest city in the States. Lining Lake Michigan gives Illinois residents access to about 26 miles of beachfront where the only salt you’ll get is lining a margarita glass.
If you crave the music scene, there is always a music festival somewhere. You can find anything that suits your fancy from jazz to blues and country to rock.
Here’s the downside to Illinois. The winters can be brutal in the northern edge of the state. If you’re comfortable with bundling up and embracing hygge, take the plunge in the icy wind for a new adventure. Traffic in Chicago is one of the worst in the country. Consider public transit within the city and use your vehicle to take adventures around the rest of the state.
On the other side, if you don’t fully appreciate the history of Twinkies, Chicago is a smorgasbord of good food. If the pros outweigh the cons of taking an assignment in Chicago and you’re looking for a position in travel nursing, Chicago, Illinois may be for you.

There has been a reduction in RN positions because of fewer elective surgeries allowing more travel nurses to hit the road and go where they are needed most.
