TrustedHealth is a relatively new technology platform that invites nurses to create a free profile to be connected with temporary nursing positions in short-staffed facilities nationwide.

You set your job preferences, including specialty, the hours and locations you prefer. TrustedHealth then matches you to job openings that fit your interests and skills. If you see a job option that looks attractive, you click on “request interview” and go from there.

Unlike ConnectRn, which allows nurses and aides take additional shifts near home, TrustedHealth specializes in travel nursing. This involves taking short-term contracts at far-flung facilities that are short on staff. So many of the job opportunities on this site are full-time and require relocation.

That’s unsettling, but you get paid for the inconvenience. Travel nurses often make six-figure incomes. TrustedHealth also says each nurse who registers with the site is assigned a “nurse advocate” to help get you through the process.

Reviews are generally positive, but sparse.


There is little downside to creating a profile here, if travel nursing appeals to you. However, the site demands current references from supervisors, so if you don’t want to tell your current employer that you’re in the market for something new, you might have trouble meeting their reference requirements. You may also want to sign up with ConnectRN and, perhaps, register with a travel nursing agency.

What their users say (from Glassdoor)

They give you the pay breakdown up front and pay packages are higher than some. But unable to reach staff consistently. After requesting an interview… crickets….Haven’t heard from hospitals until weeks later. They don’t have exclusives like some agencies do. Hard to get ahold of advocates. They are slow to respond and you might not hear from them for awhile once you submit for a position. Advocates are not as eager as some recruiters at agencies are to get you the position you want and support. Health benefits are expensive compared to other companies.

Trusted offers some of the highest paying travel nurse contracts. Easy onboarding process. But no recruiter that actively looks for jobs for you. You have to be comfortable with negotiating for yourself.

This was my first time doing travel nursing and trusted health helped me the whole way through

From Reddit:

I’ve created profiles on both. The benefits seem to be that you see pay upfront and don’t have to talk with a recruiter. Another way to look at it though is that you don’t get to talk to a recruiter. I had a difficult time getting answers to questions about hospitals and units upfront before submitting. Also, these companies have a pretty limited number of jobs. And you can see pay packages anywhere these days. As far as the pay, yes, it seems higher. But they have very limited benefits. Neither of them were offering housing when I was looking at them. And they didn’t offer much in the way of help with anything like travel, finding housing, etc. They also didn’t guarantee hours.
