Our founder and President is Mary DeChristopher, who began her career as an RN before starting ConTemporary over 25 years ago.
We are a nurse-owned company with an approach to ensure clinicians and facilities stay with us for years. Founded in 1997 by a registered nurse, and operated by healthcare and recruiting professionals, we understand the changing needs of today’s healthcare industry. Our nursing agency is experienced and dedicated to getting nurses working in the facilities that need them.
We have over 25 years of experience bringing contract and per diem RNs into the areas we service and matching them to each region’s specific needs. We specialize in attracting local clinicians who are looking for flexibility without having to leave their community.
Your recruiter will listen closely to your goals so that they can help you make the most of your career. If you want to be close to family or friends, they can find assignments nearby. If you’re looking to work exclusively in world-class hospitals to gain experience, they can help you with that, too! They will be your advocate for anything you need.
