Travel Nurse Housing Alternative – House-Sits


Carol e-mailed and asked “Do healthcare workers rent out their home base apartment, or house, to other travelers?”

Many travelers we have met, do keep a home base. On our website we have covered some options for travelers regarding housing.

The problem for a traveler is to find affordable available housing.  It is difficult to get information. Of course you can go to the paper or online but you do not know who you are dealing with.

Our Free E-Classified Ad Community is a new concept. It targets other health care travelers. Under housing, you can list that you have a dwelling available. Many people looking for house-sitters do so because they have plants, or pets to look after or a yard that needs regular care. You as a house-sitter can get a reduced rate or sometimes even free housing.

If you are looking for accommodations you can request what you are looking for. Like all new ideas it takes time for this to catch on.

Presently, Janet and I are doing a four month house-sit ending April first. Our Nurse Mafia (check what the” nurse mafia” is, on our previous article) found us the house-sit. Our friend Joanne who is a registered nurse knew we were looking for housing in the area we wanted and her parents were going away for four months.

We took over this clean attractive three-bedroom house for the cost of the utilities


We also have a monthly newsletter, which starts March 15 where we will feature house-sits for health care travelers. Please sign up and do register at our Free Classified Ad Community.

There is approximately twenty thous and travel nurse’s in the US. The more nurses that post on the Classifieds the better chance you have of finding a house-sit.
