Discover Charleston as a Travel Nurse or Tech

Published August 25, 2021

Charleston, a coastal city in South Carolina, is a southern belle if a city could ever be one. With its eye-catching architecture, its stunning coastline and its bounty of colorful flowers, Charleston is a beauty.

What if you were able to take your EP or IR skills on the road, explore Charleston for yourself and earn more in the process? As a traveling nurse or technologist with Springboard, you can.

Travelers with Springboard, a leader in healthcare staffing for the cardiovascular care industry, are given the opportunity to explore new places while utilizing the skills they’ve developed to provide support for medical facilities across the country — including Charleston.

One of the most intriguing aspects of traveling, for most, is the salary that comes with it. Our most recent Wage Survey indicates that most travelers have the chance to nearly double their salary as compared to permanent positions. And with that increased salary comes a new-found flexibility, offering travel nurses and techs the financial freedom they need to explore a new city, adventure after work or save for a personal goal like a house or a trip.

And in Charleston, there’s so much to see and do. The city’s unique architecture is worth exploring, as is its coastline, its culinary options and its cultural outlets. And for those who love the outdoors? There are countless ways to mix your favorite activity with some fresh air.

Should you consider a traveling nurse or tech assignment in Charleston, one of Springboard’s top destinations, consider this a primer on what to see and where to go.

Secret alleyways: Known as the Holy City, Charleston has a number of secret alleyways worthy of adding to anyone’s Instagram feed. Think lush greens, canopies of trees, bold colors and brick streets. Find them all by following this guide.

Grab a plate of oysters at Leon’s: Try them chargrilled, raw or on a roll, and throw in an order of hush puppies for extra authenticity. And if oysters aren’t your jam, consider any of the other regional favorites on the menu.

Rooftop bars: To see Charleston from above, with a cocktail in hand, create your own crawl (at once or over your entire stay) through all of the city’s rooftop bars. Since the weather cooperates here, this is an any season affair.

Fun on the water: To take full advantage of the coastal setting, look into renting water toys. From skis to wakeboards to banana boats and parasailing, there is no shortage of exciting ways to get out on or above the water in Charleston.

Get a history lesson: Charleston is home to what is considered “America’s First Museum,” and it gives a good picture of the life and culture of South Carolina lowcountry. The Charleston Museum tells stories of war, characters, the sea and the area’s thought leaders. It’s worth a visit.
