Providing Traveling Nursing Positions


Housing Tips for Travel Nurses!

As a travel nurse, finding the perfect housing can be quite a challenge, as there’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Depending on your assignment, you might need a short-term rental or a year-long lease. While a long-term hotel might sound perfect, sometimes you need a place that feels like home after a long day of work.

Ask Your Recruiter for Housing Recommendations

Your recruiter can be a great resource for finding housing options that suit your needs. Be sure to communicate your concerns and needs clearly, including how long your assignment will be. Whether you prefer a long-term hotel, a quick rental, or a room rental, your recruiter can help you find something that works. If you’re traveling in an RV, you can also get recommendations for a great RV park to stay in during your assignment.

In addition to checking with your recruiter, you can also find furnished rentals on sites like Furnished Finder. They even have a Travel Nurse Stipend Calculator that can help you find a budget that works for you.

Research the Area

Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, think about the surrounding area. It’s essential to have a pharmacy or grocery store nearby, and you may have other specific requirements. Consider how far you’ll have to travel to reach your assignment, and factor in parking if you’re bringing a car. If you’re relying on public transportation, make sure there’s a bus stop close to your rental.


Finally, it’s important to stay within your budget. You don’t want to be worrying about money when you should be relaxing. Plan ahead to avoid unnecessary stress down the line.
