Melissa Cardine has been a nurse for over 20 years. Her passion is advocacy. She enjoys listening to patients, families, and caregivers along with collaborating with other healthcare professionals. She believes that healing accelerates when patients and health care providers connect and build a common understanding of symptoms and goals. In October of 2015, after more than 15 years at the bedside Melissa took this passion and the ideas she developed in her master’s program and founded The Bridge RN Patient Advocates. She has found tremendous success as a private patient advocate and helped numerous clients have a better experience along their healthcare journey.
