If you are a nurse looking for that “right fit” for your next career move, your time will be well spent if you continue reading. The Dartmouth-Hitchcock organization is a unique place for nurses. We are one of the few locations throughout the United States that can offer nurses some of the most diverse, sophisticated and rewarding nursing careers, but we can also claim an outstanding quality of life.
Why are we so unique? We are a world-renowned medical center set right in the middle of the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We recognize that “quality of life” means different things to different people, but we are pretty confident since we have beautiful, rural and suburban housing options, world-class primary, secondary and graduate schools, hundreds of lakes, thousands of miles of hiking trails and some of the best skiing in the country. This all means you can be a happy nurse with more quality time with friends, family, pets or maybe just quiet hikes by yourself. Our idea of traffic in the “Upper Valley” of New Hampshire is a line on the ski mountain at the chair lift.
