Nurse Advocates are your career partners here at Trusted! Each nurse who joins Trusted is paired with one of our Nurse Advocates to help find, connect, and pursue the right opportunity for you. They’re all Registered Nurses, and some have been traveler nurses themselves! Now they're taking on the next challenge in their careers — to fundamentally change the way nurses search for and find jobs.
