Meanwhile, if you need help taking care of your kids while you’re busy with nursing jobs, St. Louis has great options for before and after school care.
Working in St. Louis
The demand for nursing jobs in St. Louis is partially due to the fact that healthcare and social assistance is the city’s main industry, followed by manufacturing, retail trade, educational services, and professional, scientific, and technical services. The leading hospitals in the city are:
- Barnes-Jewish Hospital
- Missouri Baptist Medical Center
- Mercy Hospital St. Louis
- St. Luke’s Hospital - Chesterfield
- Christian Hospital
But hospitals are not the only source for nursing jobs. St. Louis also has public health centers, plus more than 180 nursing homes in the metropolitan area, looking to hire you to care for patients and residents.
Living in St. Louis
Arguably the biggest selling point for St. Louis is the fact that, aside from Washington D.C., it has more free major attractions than anywhere in the U.S. You can check out the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, St. Louis Zoo, the St. Louis Science Center, and many more places without spending a dime.
If you’re into art, don’t miss the Saint Louis Art Museum, which was the former Fine Arts Palace during the 1904 World’s Fair. Designed by Cass Gilbert, it’s the only remaining building from the Fair. The Laumeier Sculpture Park is one of the first and largest sculpture parks in the country, with more than 70 pieces in a 105-acre park. Not to be outdone, the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog is the only one of its kind in the U.S. and features dogs in fine art throughout history.
For music fans, St. Louis has diverse venues for all leanings, including blues, jazz, Cajun, and rock. Also not to be missed: The Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, the nation’s second oldest symphony orchestra.
To marvel at the natural world, head to the Missouri Botanical Garden, home to the largest traditional Japanese Garden outside Japan. Fifteen minutes away in Collinsville, Illinois, you can visit the 2,200 acres of Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site (a United Nations World Heritage Site), which features the remains of the most sophisticated prehistoric native civilization north of Mexico.
Another big draw? St. Louis was named America’s next great food city by Food & Wine magazine. Not entirely surprising, considering this city is almost as well-known for Ted Drewes’ frozen custard (known as concretes) as it is for its arch. St. Louis is also among the country’s leading cities in its number of independent restaurants per capita.
Climate-wise, the weather in St. Louis is hot and humid in the summer, while winters are very cold and snowy. The temperature ranges from 25 degrees to 89 degrees during the year.
