Finding housing when you’re just getting started as a traveling healthcare professional can be a challenge, and making temporary lodging feel like home doesn’t always come naturally either. We asked Fusion Marketplace travelers for their best travel nurse housing tips and tricks, so you feel more prepared as a new traveler.

Starting something new or something unknown can bring up feelings of anxiety. Remember that feeling you’d get in the pit of your stomach when you were a kid and the first day of school was approaching? What will you wear? Who will you sit with at lunch? What will your teacher be like? The veil of questions that washed over you as you replayed that first day over and over in your head. And sometimes, that’s how it feels before you start a new travel assignment—like you're out of your element.
Taking the leap into the healthcare travel lifestyle is an adjustment, to say the least. From packing up and moving every 13 weeks to new technology to learn, life as a professional traveler is full of constant change and adventure.
