Ask a Travel Nurse: Is a camping trailer an option for Travel Nurse housing?

Ask a Travel Nurse Question:
Hi there! I’m looking into Travel Nursing in the next year. I’ve always traveled with my family with a pull-behind camping trailer, so I’m wondering: Is a camping trailer an option for Travel Nurse housing? This way, I wouldn’t have to continuously pack and move a bunch of things. Thanks for your opinion!

Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:

While I have always enjoyed my company provided, one-bedroom apartments, if I was just starting out, I’m not so sure that I wouldn’t have had a larger truck and a truck camper while on assignments.

Is it feasible? As long as you can find an available campground nearby, you should be in business.

I know one hospital that let a Traveler park his RV in the back section of the hospital parking lot. Mind you, this was a warm weather location and I believe he showered in the hospital somewhere, but if he could work out such a solution, then I’m sure a great many options are possible.

You will have to check campsite or campground availability, especially if the hospital is close to any national parks. But with a little extra effort, what you seek is certainly possible.

    I am just looking into travel nursing,(something I’ve thought about for a long time, but kept talking myself out of) And coincidentally, have dreamed for years about getting a travel trailer or small camper to see our great country. So if any other travelers have combined these two, I’d love for you to share you experiences. (The Good, the Bad, and maybe, the Ugly!!)
    Thanks,
    Paula
