- 0Mar 9, '13 by nursinadreamI'm in Anchorage now with a contract at Providence Med Center. Cross Country is the vendor manager for Prov and I'm with NovaPro, part of CC. I am in company provided housing. It is a fully furnished apartment very close to hospital. It is very functional and comfortable for my non-working husband and me. Other travelers, my co-workers are in similar apartments nearby. Most of us are on 3-6 month winter contracts; there are over 20 of us in my department, the OR. Some have chosen their own housing they located on Craigslist. For example the stipend for this time of year in AK is around $1400 per month. A co-worker found a semi-furnished condo that she is sharing with another nurse (a local) and she is sharing the rent and is saving around $900 a month. This is a great scenario for my young single friend/coworker, but its not for me. We are all (?) satisfied with housing choices and options. I believe the winter contracts are higher than summer when tourist season is booming and housing is more expensive.
