Ask a Travel Nursing Housing Expert: How do I find furnished housing online?


traveling nurse looking for furnitureAsk a Travel Nursing Housing Expert Question:

This is my first time traveling. I love my hospital. I LOVE my neighbors and the area I live in. When I went on-line I could not find an apartment that was furnished, that would accept 2 small dogs. Any suggestions on finding housing on-line?

Ask a Travel Nursing Housing Expert Answer:

There are several third party companies that provide fully furnished housing, it’s just the cost and location that may be difficult. Oakwood Corporate Housing, PC Corporate Housing, and Travelers Haven are just a few. If you are going to a small town they may not have apartments set up in that town, and in smaller towns it’s more difficult to find vendors that are willing to take pets. There are also apartment websites that give you the option of selecting furnished as an option. For instance if you go to, enter the town you are headed to, and then under Amenities you can check furnished available, hit update and it will give you the options in that town that provide furnished apartments.

It’s usually more cost effective to find an apartment and just rent the basic furniture if that is possible for you. Cort Furniture provides furniture and housewares which will make the move in really easy by having everything in the apartment when you arrive. If you are going to a smaller town where Cort does not deliver there is usually a Rent A Center in which you can get basic furniture and then bring your own housewares or purchase them. Please let me know if there are other questions you may have or if I can help you in any other way.

    Hi! I was recently living in Deming, NM. I was working as a chef, got attacked by c-diff, woke in hospital after months of coma and ileo. My home care nurses were contract nurses, and just great. Before that I travelled from Vienna,Chicago, South Bend for work, before that I worked for a 5star hotel chain.

    I have moved back to South Bend/Notre Dame. I cannot work as chef now, and trying to avoid disability. I am thinking of buying a house in the heritage district, across the street for the hospital. It has three big, sunny rooms, large closets. Do you think that I could furnish the rooms like comfy studio apt, with one shared en suite bath between the two? And of course, the main bath is available. Kitchen privelages, and shared living space. Like a modern boarding house. How would I advertise it?

    I thought provide them safe,cheerful, home for a bit…my nurses were lonely and bored and terribly tired. And give me company and income. What do you think?

    Thank you

    Hi Joelyn, Travel Nursing Central has a housing section where you can post your listings, you might have better luck finding a renter there.

    I have a beautifully furnished two story home that I would like to rent out to nurses that travel. My home is located in the Oakland Hills. How would I go about advertising it? Please help.
