California Travel Nurse Photos and Stories

Record Snowfall at Mammoth Lakes!

  • Alan M, RN
  • Mammoth Lakes, California

A spring time contract at Mammoth Lakes, CA had my wife and I facing record snowfall. Just outside town, there are geothermal areas like Hot Creek, a mountain creek that runs over a hot water vent. Decades ago, some locals built a rock tub and diverted it into a hot spring.


This is a picture of my golden retriever, Dakota, and I surrounded by the Sierras enjoying the hot water on a cool day. It doesn't get much better than this.

Lake Tahoe on Memorial Day Weekend

  • Beth C, RN
  • Donner Lake, California

During my 13 week assignment at Hospice and Palliative Care of Contra Costa in Walnut Creek, I decided to extend for an extra sixth months because it was the perfect home base near so many fun places. This is my boyfriend Jay, whom I met out here. The picture is taken near Lake Tahoe at Donner Lake for Memorial Day Weekend.




Hiking Trails at Big Sur

  • Ellen C, RN
  • Atascadero, California

This photo was taken off of Highway 1 South on route to my assignment in Atascadero, CA. We had stopped at one of the state parks just north of Big Sur and my husband decided to go off one of the trails to take some pictures.

Visiting Yosemite National Park

  • Miles H, RN
  • Yosemite, California

Here is a picture taken while visiting Yosemite National Park in July 2006 during my assignment in Bakersfield, California.

Enjoying the View from Nearly 10,000 Feet

  • Stephen D., RN
  • Sonora, California

AHH…9,624 feet above sea level! This picture was taken along the side of the road on the way up and over Sonora Pass while I was on assignment at Tuolumne General Hospital. TGH was built during the Gold Rush, and I was on the last official night shift prior to closing the hospital for good. I met a great group of people on this travel nursing assignment and had a great experience!”

My First and Favorite Assignment

  • Stephen D., RN
  • El Centro, California

During my first (and favorite) travel nursing assignment in El Centro, California I got the chance to take a number of trips to the California coastline. This is a picture of the tower located on Interstate 8. I stopped here on the way to downtown San Diego where I met my travel recruiter for dinner at 4th and Broadway (The Yard House).

Something Beautiful Around Every Corner on the California Coast!

  • Bill W., RN
  • Santa Maria, California

I’m currently on assignment in Santa Maria, California at the Marion Extended Care Center. My travel nurse assignment is all about location! I’ve seen everything from beaches and piers to wineries and lighthouses! This picture was taken along the California Coast on Highway 1 between Monterey and Pismo Beach. It is 135 miles between Santa Maria and Monterey, but traveling the highway takes all day, because it’s so beautiful and at every turn there is a new and different sight to see.

Capturing the Diversity and Beauty of California

  • Donna P., RN
  • El Centro, California

I’m currently working in the emergency department of El Centro Regional Medical Center. My husband and I traveled from Georgia to California for my first assignment. We arrived in Sacramento to obtain my license, and then traveled south until we reached El Centro. From Bakersville to El Centro we traveled through rain, snow, sleet and wind. I took a lot of pictures of the scenery; it was so different in every town we went through—from vineyards and orchards to mountains and desert. What a diverse and beautiful state! I love the people I’ve met during my assignment. They are very friendly and seem perceptive to travelers.
