Oahu – Travel Contracts

..

Oahu is the place to be if you are a Travel Nurse looking for a contract in a big city and want to spend a few months living in paradise!

Known as “the Gathering Place” – the island is a melting pot of different cultures: Hawaiian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Ilocanos and more. It is the most populated of the Hawaiian Islands and is home to about a million people. The island offers more than just surf, sun, and sand. It is home to numerous historical sites, buildings, and scenic areas.

Stroll the streets of downtown Honolulu to get acquainted with the sights and sounds of the area. Dine in one of the home-grown restaurants and try the famous “poke.”  Not the fish type? Try the yummy shave ice on the North Shore!  Aside from being known as the surfing capital of the world, the North Shore is also another destination for food lovers: it’s where you’ll find the famous shrimp trucks in Kahuku and they are a must try!

FUN FACT: Oahu is also home to Kahu Malama Nurses’ corporate office which is located in the Ala Moana area just a block from the Pacific Ocean and adjacent to the Ala Moana Shopping Center.  The mall is the largest in Hawaii and the largest open-air shopping center in the world.  Major retailers include Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s, Nordstrom and Target.  The center also includes a grocery retailer, a large food court as well as numerous larger restaurants such as California Pizza Kitchen, Morton’s Steak House, Jade Dynasty Seafood, Bubba Gump Shrimp, Assagio, and Tanaka of Tokyo.
