She is currently an adjunct faculty member for the Missouri State University School of Nursing. Additionally, she is a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing, the President-Elect of the Missouri Organization of Nurse Leaders, a member of the Nightingale College Board of Managers and co-chair of the ANA Nursing Administration Scope and Standards revision workgroup redefining nursing leadership.

Christy commented:

“I am thrilled to join the board of directors for PRO Unlimited. Many industries, and in particular healthcare, have been challenged in engaging talent when and where it is needed. I look forward to providing the voice of the nurse and the healthcare industry to a company that focuses on engaging and optimizing organizations’ contingent workforce at such a critical time.”

Christy speaks and publishes both nationally and internationally as an authority on nursing, perioperative and emergency services, patient flow, provider practice operations, supply chain and physician/hospital collaboration. She also serves on the editorial boards for the Journal of Nursing Administration and Journal of Patient Experience. Her book, The Antidote to Suffering: How Compassionate Connected Care Can Improve Safety, Quality, and Experience, was released in 2017 and continues to be a beloved resource for clinician practice, patient experience, and caregiver education. In 2018 and again in 2020, Christina was named one of the top 50 Safety Experts in the US by Becker’s Hospital Review.
