Absolutely! Trusted welcomes first-time travelers. Thanks to our unparalleled transparency and a Care Team guided by experienced clinicians, we make sure newcomers to the travel industry are well-informed, empowered, and fully supported. Just keep in mind that each healthcare facility might have its own criteria for accepting first-time travelers.
Our partner healthcare facilities typically require at least one year of recent experience in the specialty that you are interested in pursuing for a travel opportunity.
New grad RNs or nurses looking to switch specialties are not qualified or well-suited for contracts due to the nature of limited orientation and training. In the meantime, the Trusted New Grad Resource Center and other various tools and resources, such as the Salary Explorer, Credential Locker, or CEU tracker are free to all nurses!

While you'll be working at the facility, Trusted is your actual employer. We're by your side every step of the way - from linking you with the perfect job and guiding you through interviews to ensuring all the paperwork is in order, handling benefits, managing your payroll, and offering unwavering support. We've got your back!
The opportunities listed on Trusted are contract-based and don't always demand that you travel to work. Every facility has its own criteria regarding location eligibility, which you can find on the details page of each listing. And here's some good news: Trusted also provides local contracts. So, even if you don't fit the typical "traveler" mold, that contract could still have your name on it!
Most contracts hover around the 13-week mark, but they can vary, ranging from 4 to 20+ weeks. Healthcare facilities often have a bit of wiggle room when it comes to contract duration. If a Match catches your eye but doesn't quite align with your availability, just ask your Nurse Advocate! We're here to help.
Absolutely! Our compliance team will start working with you as soon as you sign a contract to ensure that you’ve got everything you need to start your contract prepared and on time.
You'll experience two orientations. First, there's an introduction to Trusted, your official employer. This covers our policies, benefits, timekeeping procedures, expectations, and the support we offer. Then, there's the facility orientation, where you'll be working. This usually starts with a general briefing, followed by a few guided shifts on your designated unit. We're big on safety and ensuring our Trusted Nurses feel confident and ready.

Absolutely! One of the joys of contract work is the freedom to pause between assignments. Whether you're keen on a relaxing break, quality time with loved ones, or a travel adventure, the choice is yours!
While we don't directly provide housing, we're proud of our collaboration with Landing, a travel-friendly housing company. For a deeper dive into housing options, check out our Guide to Travel Nurse Housing.
Benefit options include medical, dental, and vision. There are various health plans to allow nurses and allied pros to select the coverage that best fits their needs. The cost of these plans is subsidized by Trusted, with the remaining amount deducted from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis.
Yes! Trusted offers a 401(k) retirement plan enabling our clinicians to save for retirement! All Trusted clinicians are eligible to opt-in to make contributions by setting up a Betterment account and setting deferral amounts.
The cost will vary based on the level of coverage you need. Individual costs for medical benefits start around $41/week, and there are options to add dependents, too. Insurance costs are automatically deducted from your weekly pay pre-tax. For specific plan summaries and cost sheets, please reach out to your Care Team.
You have the option to continue your benefits between assignments if your next assignment starts within 28 days of your previous assignment ending. If you take a gap for >28 days, you will be able to enroll in COBRA during the time you are not working. You can then re-enroll in benefits on the first day of your new assignment!
Yes! We carry liability insurance and workers compensation insurance for all employed clinicians!
If you maintain a tax-home, you might be eligible for tax-free reimbursements as part of your weekly compensation. These payments, or stipends, are designed to assist with housing, meals, and other incidentals during your travels. Our travel contracts include stipends for these expenses, provided clinicians confirm their eligibility based on their tax situation. For a deeper understanding, we recommend checking out our Essential Guide to Travel Taxes.
A "tax home" is your main place of business, regardless of where your family resides. To qualify for tax-free reimbursements, you must show the IRS that you maintain expenses at this primary residence, while also incurring costs on assignment. For a detailed understanding, consult our Essential Guide for Travel Taxes or a tax professional.
Per diem pay refers to tax-free reimbursements to cover housing, meals, and incidental costs when working away from your tax home- also called stipends. At Trusted, stipends are calculated per-shift, with a weekly cap that’s set by the US General Services Administration. Essentially, travelers get a mix of taxed pay and untaxed "per diems". Any unused portion of these stipends can be extra savings, acting as an allowance for your on-the-go expenses.
Your very first paycheck will always be the second Friday after your start date. After that, you’ll get weekly payments every Friday, so long as you submit your time via the Trusted Mobile App by Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time (unless otherwise stated).
Your travel assignment comes with "guaranteed hours," which are the agreed-upon weekly hours you and the facility commit to over your assignment's duration.
However, some contracts might include a facility "call-off" or "cancellation" policy, which takes precedence over Trusted's guaranteed hours. This policy permits the facility to cancel a specified number of your shifts during the assignment without the need to compensate you. It's not unusual to encounter a policy allowing 3 or 6 shift cancellations (often structured as once every two to three weeks) in a 13-week assignment.
At Trusted, we champion transparency and fairness. Rates aren't up for negotiation because we're committed to offering you the utmost right from the get-go. Every Match page offers a clear compensation breakdown, available even before you request an interview. We've innovated our platform to eliminate middlemen, commissions, and inefficiencies, ensuring you receive the best possible pay every time. Plus, with no recruiters in the mix, you can be confident that no commission is deducted from your earnings.
