If you crave a more fast-paced scene, Jersey City is the second-largest city in the state. Some highlights of Jersey City are quick access to the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Science Center, and the 9/11 Memorial at Liberty State Park.
If you fancy some brownstone buildings and a great view of the Manhattan skyline, Hoboken is the place to go. In Hoboken, you can find a diverse range of ethnic foods from Italian, to Indian, to Mexican, and more.
Further inland, Jackson Township is home to Six Flags Great Adventure. The Ferris wheel reaches 150 ft into the air and the Safari Off-Road Adventure has about 1,200 animals in their park. To see a bird’s eye view of the park, a cable car can take you from one end of the park to another. Wildwood, located in Cape May County, is another holiday destination, especially in the summer.

There are two ways to obtain an RN and LPN license in New Jersey:
If New Jersey is your home state, you will take the NCLEX for this license type.
New Jersey has partly implemented the Nurse Licensure Compact agreement (NLC). Currently, New Jersey is allowing nurses who hold active, unencumbered, multi-state licenses issued by NLC state to practice in New Jersey using this license. This satisfies licensure by endorsement.
Weekly pay for a travel nurse in New Jersey is $1,879 per week on average or $97,720 per year. This is just slightly lower than the national average. This can vary greatly by location and specialty. New Jersey ranks number 11 out of 50 for travel nurse salaries.
However, the downside is that the cost of living in New Jersey is higher than the national average by about 20%. Most of that difference is because of transportation and housing costs. This may be worth it to you to obtain quick access to New York, Philadelphia, and the surrounding areas.
If the cost of living is so high you may be looking for locations that will be easier on your wallet. Here are a few suburbs with a lower cost of living compared to the rest of the state:
These cities are often smaller suburbs that give you access to more populated areas such as Philadelphia. If you favor a smaller and more quiet environment, these smaller towns may be for you.
When thinking about taking a travel nurse assignment in New Jersey, there are two primary ways to obtain housing during your stay. You can either:
If you decide to find housing yourself, our recruiters will be happy to give you advice on the housing market, or even find a roommate through the Trusted Nurse Staffing network. Fellow travel nurses that would like to save money during their assignment may be looking for someone to share costs with. No matter what option you choose, our friendly recruiters will be happy to help you.
Finding the right agency for travel nursing jobs in New Jersey may seem like a tedious process with so many choices, but there are some things you can do to narrow your search:
The team at Trusted Nurse Staffing is confident that our pay, benefits packages, and 24/7 support are above and beyond the industry standard, and we’d like to prove it to you.
This depends on the kind of lifestyle you prefer. If you like a more fast-paced environment, consider the larger coastal towns such as Atlantic City or Hoboken. Hoboken is right across the water from Manhattan giving you quick access to the city.
If you prefer a quieter life, consider one of the suburbs both on the coast or inland may be more to your liking. In New Jersey, travel nurse jobs are diverse. There is a wide range of hospitals and facilities looking for travel nurses that could benefit your career.
In addition to its own attractions, New Jersey is near many sites in the surrounding states. New Jersey sits right next to both New York and Philadelphia, making day trips or weekend getaways easier.
COVID-19 has made travel nursing more than just an opportunity to grow your career or travel. It’s become a necessity. In New Jersey, travel nurse jobs are needed to help fill in gaps in staffing in strained hospitals and facilities. There is also a need for vaccination support. As the vaccine is rolled out in higher numbers, travel nurses can help support this effort. Crisis pay is often offered for these high-risk positions.
