Music. BBQ. The Great Smoky Mountains. These things often come to mind when you think about visiting Tennessee. For some, this is all you need. But there is so much more.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains and straddles the state line between North Carolina and Tennessee. It’s the most visited national park in the U.S. The Appalachian Trail runs through the center of the park. If you’re not a thru-hiker, chunks of the Appalachian Trail can be done as day hikes.
Even if visiting all-things-Elvis is not a pilgrimage for you, Graceland is worth a visit. You can take a tour with an interactive iPad hosted by John Stamos with commentary and stories by Elvis and his daughter, Lisa Marie. Tour the mansion, see Elvis’ customized airplanes, and Elvis Presley’s Memphis at Graceland: An entertainment and exhibit complex that spans over 200,000 square feet. Here you can tour:
If you find yourself in Nashville, Centennial Park is a central gathering place. The 132-acre park has walking trails, volleyball courts, a dog park, a playground, a bandshell, and the Centennial Arts Center.

Compared to other states, Tennessee is about the middle of the road when it comes to travel nurse salaries. The average weekly pay is around $1,805 a week. This can vary greatly depending on your specialty.
In Nashville, the average weekly pay is slightly higher at $1,866 per week to accommodate the higher cost of living. Lafayette comes in slightly lower with an average of $1,718 per week. But, there is always room for advancement and increased pay depending on your skill level and years of experience.

Sifting through the travel nurse companies in Tennessee can be a slog. How do you know how a company will support you before, during, and after your assignment? While we always recommend reading reviews of fellow travel nurses, we also believe that benefits matter.

Because of COVID-19, hot spots have created personnel vacuums and demands in unusual waves. Travel nurses can fill a vital role in helping distribute vaccinations and cover personnel shortages or demands. Many facilities are also offering crisis pay.

Travel nursing assignments vary and can last 8 to 52 weeks. The most common travel nursing assignment is around 13 weeks long. If you complete your assignment and decide you’d like to stay longer, our recruiters can help you extend your assignment or find another position in your area.
