Want to know the most frequently traveled city for travel nurses in the US? It’s none other than the beautiful city of San Diego, California!  It has earned that position because of its many diverse beaches, booming downtown, picturesque sunsets, and it’s laid-back Cali style...to name a few. There’s no doubt that it has a lot to offer, but that draw comes at a cost.  Without even factoring in the furnished and short-term aspects of travel nurse housing in San Diego, the average cost of living in ‘America’s finest city’ is 30% higher than the average cost of living in other cities.

Traveling nurses need furnished housing for their assignments which last 13 weeks at a time. Landlords love renting to traveling nurses because they’re on a housing stipend and stay for 3 months at a time. They’re also a higher quality tenant than most because they’re drug screened, background screened, and just all-around professional people.  When property owners list their property with us, they’re looking for better tenants with less turn over!

Furnished Finder

Brian started renting to travel nurses in 2007 while he was working in the healthcare industry as a internal pacemaker and defibrillator technician. He'd not only work with travel nurses in the cath lab and telemetry units, but he'd rent his short term furnished rentals to them when they came to town for work. From this, Furnished Finder was born, and now it's the site where travel nurses and the medical staffing industry come for travel nurse housing. There are about 100,000 travel nurses in the US and around 30,000 of them are working at any given time as they're constantly rotating around the nation. Travel nurses stay for about 3 months at a time, and require safe, clean, and affordable furnished rentals when they travel for work. Furnished Finder is the leader in the traveling nurse rental space.
