If your definition of success is a simply satisfying life and a great physician assistant or nurse practitioner career, look no further than Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth,” Hershey is just east of the state capital in Harrisburg, and a short drive from D.C., New York, and Philly. Founded by philanthropist and businessman Milton Hershey, the city is known for its chocolate factories, amusement park, and entertainment venues. Just outside the city limits, you’ll discover gently rolling hills, color-changing foliage, and roadside Amish markets.
You’ll also recognize a strong sense of community and a positive quality of life. Many of Hershey’s institutions and landmarks are generously supported by the M.S. Hershey Foundation. The foundation works to create what Hershey described as “a place where people can live and work in pleasant surroundings.”
