There’s More Than the Cowboy Life in Texas

Not all our nurses and assistants in Texas are cowboys and cowgirls (although a high percentage of them probably have at least one pair of cowboy boots in the closet). Sure, Texans are known for their drawl and the cowboy life pictured in Hollywood movies, but there’s a lot more on offer. Regular downtime activities for residents include:

  • Live Music – Be it in a local bar, a big concert venue, or one of the many music festivals; live music can be found just about anywhere.
  • Football – In Texas any football game is a big deal, be it the community high school game, any of the university teams, and of course the professional teams.
  • Watersports – Texas not only has a coastline on both sides, but Lake Travis is a favorite spot for tubing, boating, and water skis, and rafting, kayaking or canoeing on the Rio Grande through the Santa Elena Canyon is another must.
  • Hiking – There are more than 100 national or state parks in this state, Big Bend National Park is undoubtedly the largest and offers over 150 miles of trails.
  • Rock-climbing – Hueco Tanks is another park popular for hiking, but it’s world-famous to rock climbers, both amateur and professional.

Important Qualities in an Oncology Nurse

An interest in research is a meaningful quality to have in the field of oncology because of its fast-paced innovation and change. Confidence is also necessary to provide insight and informed opinions in developing a patient’s plan of care with an interdisciplinary team. An oncology nurse or nursing assistant must be structured and efficient in order to balance the demands of patients, physicians, and other staff.
