Journey from Registered Nurse to Care Manager

15th May 2020 | 5 mins

Cristine is currently a Care Manager at one of our newer homes and has been with Opal for six years in three different Opal homes. Starting off as a Registered nurse, Cristine was promoted to a Clinical Nurse Educator and then to a Care Manager. She chose aged care as a sector as she values the fact that she has the opportunity to form relationships with residents and families and was inspired by the opportunity to bring joy and happiness to those she worked for each and every day. Lifelong learning is valued for all our team and it is inspirational to hear Cristine's journey.  Cristine also talks in a separate news article about how the emotional care she gives is equally important to the clinical care she provides in her role.
