Travel nursing checklist item #5 – Examining company provided housing


Time to think about housing. Not all travel nursing companies offer private housing, so make sure you find out early on in the travel nursing process. What you want is fully furnished and paid and private housing. After a long day at the hospital the last thing you want to deal with is a roommate you don’t know. You also want to make sure that if you decide to pick something on your own or stay with friends or family that you are offered a housing stipend instead.

Here are some questions you should ask regarding housing:

  • Does the travel nursing company pay for housing?
  • Who pays for moving into the new housing?
  • Are the utilities paid?
  • Can I bring my spouse?
  • Can I bring my pet?
  • What kind of housing options are there (apartment, duplex, house)?
  • Where will my housing be located?
  • Do I have to share the house with other travel nurses?
  • Will my housing be furnished?
  • What items are included in the furnishings (microwave, television, washer & dryer, etc.)
  • What happens if I decide not to live in the provided housing, but want to find my own?
