Hi all, I'm a male nurse working in an aging adult unit at a psychiatric hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. I am considering starting travel nursing and there is an opening in Helena. I have been to Montana to Yellowstone as a vacation a few years back and thought it was pretty sweet but was just doing vacation stuff, not looking into moving there. I was wondering what the general impressions everyone had on the area either good or bad. It would be great to hear from nurses especially. Thanks in advance, cheers.

I can't say for sure but I think you may have a fairly easy time getting a job as a traveling nurse here. I know one and she is always very busy.

Yeah I have a job offer there that is pretty lucrative. The travel staffing agency I'm speaking with has jobs in Montana frequently. I'm just curious as to what people think of living there. By the way I am 31, not married and don't have kids.

Montana is great for some and horrid for others, I have a feeling that you would do well anywhere. It may boil down to whether or not you happen to like living here. The more popular areas seem to be more expensive than the towns that are still losing population. Being retired, I happen to enjoy the little dusty dying towns for some reason. The high-line can get hard to bear at times. I had my air filter on my old 85 Toyota pick up ice up during a blizzard 4 miles east of browning and I had my wife, dog and parrot with me. We were a bit concerned that we were in serious trouble but I took the filter out and dried it over the windshield defogger vents and was able to limp into Browning. We stayed in a $70. per night motel room (he gave us a $30. pitty discount) smelling vomit and listening to partiers in the next room all night.

Many assignments might be for 5 or 6 shifts and at some rural health care sites they will provide you housing. Travel nine months of the year is difficult. You also may not have a doctor in house with you. On the upside the challange is exciting. Follow your dreams, you only go around once
