- by nyteshade Jan 20, '09Hey everyone! I would like to know stipends others were offered for housing in southern Cali. I feel it may be better to find my own, than be set up by the agency. Thanks for reading! :heartbeat

- Jan 20, '09 by julzhereWhat are they offering you?
- Jan 21, '09 by nyteshadeSo far I've been hearing $1900-$2000

If you want a secure building, with secure parking, a pool, gym equipment, etc, it will cost more. Furnished places tend to cater to the professional crowd and won't likely be a better deal than having it paid for directly by an agency (but I could be wrong). Of course, if you want to live in a popular area or a very nice neighborhood, it will cost more.
Where will you be working and how far are you willing to commute? Some areas can get pretty pricey; but depending on traffic flow and where you work, it could be worth it to avoid a miserable commute. Without having spent time in a particular area, though, it can hard to know what the reality of traffic to and from work is and what the neighborhood is really like. Hopefully, an agency would set up it's workers in very convenient and safe places. While there's probably lots of potential for finding a better deal on one's own, I don't know how well someone can realize that potential on a first agency assignment to the area.

- Jun 17, '09 by Nurse2121Hi! I hope I am not a bother, but I was wondering what agency you work for? I am a new nurse and after I get some experience I would like to work for agency. Is the monthly stipend for agency and travel nurses? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks everyone! :-)
