WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VISITING ARIZONA AS A LOCUM TENENS PHYSICIAN, NURSE PRACTITIONER, PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT, CRNA, AND DENTIST
Interesting Facts About Arizona
Arizona, appropriately named “The Grand Canyon State” became a state on February 14, 1912. After World War II, the widespread availability of refrigeration and air conditioning caused Arizona’s population to boom and Phoenix to become one of the fastest growing cities in America.
Here are some other fun facts about Arizona:
Arizona is the sixth largest state.
Arizona has the greatest percentage of its acreage designated as Indian tribal land in the United States.
Navajo Indians from Arizona were enlisted to transmit secret communications for the U.S. Marines after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941. Known as Navajo Code Talkers, these young men created an oral code the enemy was unable to decipher, fulfilling a crucial role during World War II and saving countless lives.
What is there to do and see in Arizona?
Standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon peering out over the endless ridges of colorful cliff walls and deep ravines, it’s impossible not to be inspired by this natural wonder. The canyon glows in the late afternoon sun, revealing hues of orange, red, yellow, and everything in between.
Surrounded by stunning red rock mountains and buttes, Sedona has one of the most beautiful settings in Arizona. About a 1.5-hour drive north of Phoenix, Sedona is a popular day trip from the city, but the town is worthy of much more than just a few hours.
Hoover Dam is one of America’s great engineering marvels. This massive structure, completed in 1935, crosses the Colorado River, linking Arizona and Nevada. It is 726 feet high and 1,244 feet long.
Beyond the borders of Arizona, where can I visit?
If you see all there is to see in Arizona while you are on assignment with Barton, take an extended day-trip to a nearby state such as California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico. If you have your passport, you could even visit Mexico! Arizona is a great location to explore the United States because it borders 4 other states!
Assuming a starting point of Phoenix, traveling to these major cities are a great option:
Las Vegas, NV: 7 hours and 40 minutes driving
Albuquerque, NM: 6 hours and 15 minutes driving
San Diego, CA: 8 hours and 30 minutes driving
There’s so much to do and see in Arizona that we could not fit it all one page. But we hope this sparked your interest in living in Arizona as a locum.
