How to Find Housing as a Travel Nurse

Finding the right place to live as a travel nurse is essential for a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Here are some options to consider:

Housing Stipends:

There are many benefits to receiving a housing stipend. Converdia offers weekly non-taxable housing stipends tailored to your pay package, considering factors like discipline/specialty, location, and facility. The benefits of receiving housing stipends include the flexibility to choose your accommodation and the potential to have extra money for personal expenses.


Airbnb is an excellent choice for travel nurses, offering a vast selection of furnished vacation homes nationwide. With over 6 million listings available, you can find affordable options that suit your schedule. Airbnb accommodations often provide amenities not typically found in hotels, adding to the convenience and comfort of your stay.


Similar to Airbnb, Vrbo (Vacation Rentals by Owner) offers an easy-to-use website with a wide range of stay options, including houses, apartments/condos, cabins, cottages, villas, and chalets. Vrbo distinguishes itself by offering lower service fees. It also welcomes your family members and pets, making it an attractive option for those seeking an inclusive living arrangement. This is particularly beneficial when traveling to states that offer unique opportunities outside of work.

Furnished Apartments:

Consider exploring furnished apartments in your work location. Many apartment complexes offer short-term lease options and provide furniture, ensuring convenience for travel nurses. You can search online for websites specializing in furnished apartment rentals or consult local real estate agents for available options.

Furnished Finder:

Furnished Finder is a dedicated website designed specifically for travelers, including travel nurses. Upon visiting the website, you’ll be greeted with three search bars: “Where are you going,” “Move-in,” and “Max monthly budget.” Utilize these search bars to find the perfect housing that meets your needs. Furnished Finder also offers unique features such as area statistics, including travel nurse demand, common specialties, staffing companies, and housing options. An additional benefit is the ability to list your housing options if you have a property you’d like to rent out.


When deciding where to live, consider factors such as proximity to your workplace, cost, amenities, and personal preferences. Engaging with other travel nurses in online communities or forums can also provide valuable insights and recommendations for housing options in specific locations.
