Disregard any fear-inducing headlines you may have read about the demand for travel nurses slowing down. In fact, the vital lifeline for hospitals and clinics made possible by travel nurses is in higher demand than ever going into 2024 – especially in key states such as Texas, Ohio, Massachusetts and California.

Texas fluctuates between the No.1 and No.2 spot. Texas is experiencing increased population growth recently, in part due to people and companies moving to the Lone Star State. The Houston, Austin and Dallas areas are among some of the fastest-growing Texas cities.
