Located in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area, Oakland is the largest city in Alameda County. As a major West Coast port, shipping and cargo are major forces in the economy. If you’ve been feeling starved for diversity in your travel nursing journey, Oakland is one of the most ethnically diverse major cities in the country, with African Americans leading the way, followed by a vibrant Hispanic population and an Ethnic Asian population. Oakland is also the third-highest concentration of LGBTQ+ individuals in the U.S.. The city has experienced intense gentrification which has changed the face of many neighborhoods as big tech companies have moved into the area. Known as one of America’s most exciting cities and America’s Most Hipster city, Oakland provides a wide variety of arts and culture, from the Children’s Fairyland to Lake Merritt, and the Oakland Aviation Museum. Oakland has an average of 260 days of sun, with winters being cool and damp. For those travel nurses who seek outdoor adventure, Oakland is beautifully situated near the California redwoods.
