Live Like a Local – Spokane, WA!

Welcome to Spokane, Washington!

Yes, it’s true that Seattle is not the only big city in the Evergreen State. Although often shadowed by Seattle’s impressiveness, Spokane possesses its own kind of charm that offers a welcoming feeling and fails to disappoint. A secret to many, Spokane is certainly a place to check out for your next travel nurse assignment.

Located in Eastern Washington State, Spokane is known for its many spacious parks and colorful gardens. It’s also known for its variety of weather. Close to the Idaho border, Spokane experiences four distinct seasons which opens the door to a variety of outdoor activities which include skiing, snowboarding and wakeboarding. Although this mid-size city offers many experiences for the nature-lover, it also has great things to check out within the core.
