Housing Options for Travel Nurses
Housing is one of the most important aspects of a travel assignment. Availability and Cost of the area can be the difference in being able to follow through with an assignment. Also how you chose to take your housing stipend from your agency is something to consider. Corporate Housing, where you allow your agency to set up your housing, comes with a cost, while taking your stipend and paying yourself can prove to be significantly more cost effective and flexible. There are benefits to both. You may find that one option is best for one assignment and the other works better for another.
Furnished Finders - This company pays the up-front deposits and offers fully furnished places including all utilities and housewares. Also, they bill weekly, which works out way better for travelers! It’s basically like getting corporate housing with the added benefit of qualifying for the housing stipend!
AirBNB - Keep in mind that many places listed as 6 -12 month leases will usually be open to doing a 3+ month lease if you ask
Extended Stay America - Fully furnished and utilities are set up already. They also have the “Extended Stay Plus” discount for 90+ day stay, which you would qualify for, and you don’t have to sign any lease paperwork
