7 Things to Expect in Travel Nursing Housing

When you accept a travel assignment with RNnetwork, we’ll make your housing arrangements, or you can take the tax-free housing stipend and make your own. If you live in provided housing, you are in great hands with our housing experts! Here are a few things you can expect:

Travel nursing housingRNnetwork will arrange a furnished, private, one-bedroom apartment.

This apartment will include basic furniture: dining table and chairs, sofa, loveseat or chair, end table and lamp, coffee table, TV stand, queen-size bed, frame and headboard, nightstand, lamp and dresser with mirror. Some units may also include a microwave and a washer and dryer. You will need to bring your housewares, linens and electronics.

If you want any of those items included in your housing package, make sure you discuss it with your recruiter. He or she may need to adjust your pay package to cover the additional costs, or have it payroll-deducted from your weekly or biweekly paychecks.

Many travelers have families traveling with them, and we are happy to accommodate you.

Although your standard package includes a one-bedroom apartment, two- or three-bedroom apartments can be requested. Discuss this with your recruiter. Any costs for the additional bedrooms can be payroll-deducted.

Those of you traveling with a four-legged companion have options.

Many apartment complexes are pet friendly. Tell your recruiter how many pets and what breeds will be traveling with you. If there are any pet deposits or monthly pet costs, you can have them payroll-deducted so you don’t have to worry about coming up with them up front.

RNnetwork uses several resources to identify housing for our travelers.

Safety and proximity to the facility are always the top priorities. Our housing coordinators each have designated states they house in. This gives them the opportunity to get to know those areas and make great connections with reliable vendors who can accommodate our travelers with safe housing options.

We also work with local realtors and third-party housing vendors to assist us in areas where housing can be more challenging to find.

If you work shorter assignments, we may look at alternative housing options.

We have a great partnership with long-term stay hotels nationwide and will arrange for you to have an efficiency room, which will include all furniture, linens, housewares, electronics and utilities. If you are working an assignment longer than 12 weeks but don’t want to travel with any of your housewares or electronics, this may also be an option for you.

Your housing will be opened 48 hours prior to your start date unless other arrangements are made in advance.

Your utilities will be connected, and all furniture will be delivered on this date. We will connect and pay allowances for monthly electric, gas, water and sewer; you are responsible for cable, phone and internet services. We can give you contact information for local providers.

In case of emergencies, you can call RNnetwork 24/7 at 800-866-0407.

If you have any specific housing requests, discuss them with your recruiter and housing coordinator. They will always do their best to accommodate all requests, but they are often based on availability in the area.
