Newark and Jersey City are the first and second largest cities in the state making them prime locations for travel nursing jobs. These bustling destinations put you near Prudential Center sports arena, the Statue of Liberty, and the largest collection of Cherry Blossom Trees in the US in Branch Brook Park. Trenton is the state capital. If you're feeling brave check out the dubiously named "Shaky Bridge" built for a demonstration by John A. Roebling, who built the Brooklyn Bridge. Accept a New Jersey travel assignment further south in Toms River to be centrally located near beaches, resorts, and casinos. Weekend excursions across the state will open your eyes to lush scenery, by turns farmland, meadows, and wooded hills. The Garden State is much more scenic than you might think. Sound good?
