What I liked Least
60 mph wind gusts….its the norm ! Getting Fogged in with the Air & Sea Ports closed( There is no Bridge to Nantucket) & the US Coast Guard is your only way off the Island !! But it’s interesting living on an Island 30 miles out to sea !!!!

  1. Hello! I have recently accepted a travel nursing position at Cottage Hospital for this summer. I was wondering, just out of curiosity, if you could provide more information about what the housing they provide is like and where on the island it is. Thank you!
