Travel nurse housing is a tough subject. It's probably the most common issue experienced by new and even veteran travel nurses.
My wife and I have lived in all types of housing including:
- With family
- Corporate housing
- Furnished apartments
- Vacation townhouse
I can tell you it's challenging at first but it definitely gets better with experience.
Surprisingly, I've notice there aren't a lot of resources out there for new travel nurses to learn about housing.
That's why I created the, "Travel Nurse Housing: The Definitive Guide."
It's meant to be the most comprehensive guide available about travel nurse housing. It includes an epic 17 chapters and growing. The guide includes:
- Housing Basics
- How to choose agency Vs. finding your own housing
- What's it like to work with an agency's housing department
- How to negotiate your agency housing
- Importance of family and pets
- Benefits & Challenges of using agency housing
- How to understand housing stipends
- How to negotiate housing stipends
- Finding your own housing
- Your housing options if you find your own
- What to do when you arrive to your housing
- How to handle housing problems
- Housing Facebook groups you should join
- How to research housing
- How to create a travel nurse housing ad
- How to avoid housing scams & protect yourself
- Housing websites to look into
I know people are busy and it's a big article but I hope it helps you during the housing process.
Housing is tough but I believe it's worth it to find your own housing and do this awesome travel nurse life!
