Assignment #7 Recap- Bella Bella, BC

I can’t believe that I’ve completed my SEVENTH Travel Nursing contract!! Not to mention that it’s most likely my LAST one. It’s taken me awhile to write this last assignment recap post and it might be because I’ve been dreading reliving it and remembering what it was like to be a travel nurse! It’s been almost two months since I’ve been home and I am finally getting to this!! Enjoy 🙂

Assignment #5 & 6 Recap – Fort Nelson, BC

Hey guys! I just finished a long two months of work way up in Northern British Columbia in Fort Nelson! (Minus one week home at the end of January). I had originally sent my recruiter two sets of dates…three weeks in January and four weeks in February…and the facility in Fort Nelson requested me for both! I decided to drive all the way there and fly home for the week in between. It was great having a truck up North in the cold weather and also for adventuring purposes. To be completely… Read More

Dog Sledding in Northern BC

I have always wanted to go dog sledding; it’s been on my bucket list for a very long time! The only chance I’ve had to go so far was in Banff, Alberta but it was very expensive and very touristy. I really didn’t want that as my first-time experience when I looked into it. When I signed my contract to come to Fort Nelson, British Columbia I started researching winter-time attractions and things to do in the area. Funny enough, dog sledding didn’t come up so I kind of forgot about it… Read More

A Day in the Northwest Territories

I had no idea how many amazing opportunities were waiting for me in Fort Nelson, BC!! Last month I went to The Yukon, and last week I went to the Northwest Territories!! I’m pretty far north up here so it’s awesome that I was able to cross off two more provinces/territories! I only have to go to Nunavut and Newfoundland now!

Weekend Getaway to Liard River Hot Springs & The Yukon

Hey everyone! For the past month or so I have been working way up in Fort Nelson, British Columbia! It has been a great experience so far and I can’t wait to tell you all about it when my contract is complete. I have been working so much while I’ve been here; give me alllll the overtime!! I had one set of three days off in January so I knew it was the perfect time to go up to the Liard River Hot Springs! However, it was THE coldest week of the… Read More

Jasper, Alberta & Icefields Parkway

In case you missed it… over New Year’s Andrew and I drove all the way from Ontario across Canada in order to bring me to my next contract in Northern BC. We spent time in Banff, Lake Louise, and Abraham Lake along the way. The next location we visited was Jasper National Park! I’ve been to Jasper by myself before and also with another travel nurse on our days off when we were both working in Dawson Creek, BC. (All of those trips/blog posts are linked if you want to go read… Read More

Abraham Lake- Banff’s Hidden Secret

If you are planning, or have planned, a trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains, you probably automatically think of visiting Banff National Park and Jasper National Park…which you should. You’ll probably start in Banff, hit up Lake Louise then drive up Highway 93, the Icefields Parkway, up to Jasper through the Columbia Icefield (or the opposite way ending in Banff). It’s one of the most gorgeous road trips in the world (more about it in the next blog post!). Along the route, between Lake Louise and Jasper National Park, there’s an intersection… Read More

Lake Louise & New Years Eve in Banff

Hey there! If you missed my last blog post, we started our trip out west to drive me to my next travel nursing contract up in Northern BC. You can read that post here. To continue on, let’s just talk about Banff. It’s a huge tourist town, especially during ski season. It’s way busier in the summer months so a winter vacation here is pretty attractive if you want to avoid crowds. The crowds are still there though. After a few days here, we were pretty good at judging where everyone would… Read More

Winter Vacation in Banff, Alberta

My next nursing contract is way up in Northern BC and I decided to drive all the way there so that I’d have a bit more freedom while on assignment. My boyfriend Andrew just so happened to be off on holidays the week before my start date so it worked out perfectly for a road trip together. Our plan was to drive to Banff for New Years Eve with a stop in Winnipeg along the way and then up to Jasper via the Icefields Parkway. Andrew has never been further than Banff… Read More

Four Best Hikes in Prince Rupert, BC

I recently did a contract in Prince Rupert, British Columbia and one of the best parts of working here was all of the hikes that were in the area! I had a hard time finding information about these hikes, especially the fourth one, so I figured writing about them would be helpful for other people! I’m not an experienced hiker at all, so don’t consider me an expert. I was here in December which is not normally a prime time for hiking but on the west coast in a rain forest it’s… Read More
