Christi Madere has been a nurse for more than eight years with the majority of her experiences in Labor and Delivery. In March of 2015, she decided that it was time for a change from her career path in managerial positions and began travel nursing.
“I had gotten to the point where being in management and having to deal with some of the things that go along with it, just wasn’t for me anymore,” she explains. “Luckily, the additional money you can make as a travel nurse made it possible. And, I like having the flexibility to change assignments and move into different environments.”
Currently, Christi is assigned to a Labor and Delivery position at a hospital in the town where she went to college. Being familiar with the town and surrounding area made her transition into travel nursing easy. Being back in her college town has been an enlightening experience for her.
“I am more aware now of the differences and cultural uniqueness of a smaller college town,” she says. “Especially in comparison to some of my past experiences and more urban lifestyle. This has been a growing experience for me.”
