Cindy O. is a board certified nurse practitioner, locum tenens provider and our very first Barton Ambassador! With the help of her recruiter Adam C., Cindy has completed locum assignments throughout the east coast.

Cindy has traveled from her home state of Florida to a position in New York, where she has been sharing her journey with us. The following blog post is written by Cindy, discussing the top 10 things she has learned since arriving in NYC.








  1. It is impossible to do a breadless diet in NYC!! No keto diet here!

  2. Getting a metro card is easy, swiping it and making it through the gate must be done in one motion to prevent those behind you from gasping in frustration.

  3. Locals will say it is ONLY “four blocks to the subway” - however I am guessing they are used to 20 minutes of hard, icy wind because 4 blocks is longer than it sounds.

  4. People don’t hold the subway door open for you! It is every man and woman for themselves!

  5. New Yorkers are NICE!! I HAVE TESTED THEIR PATIENCE and they are so kind and understanding!!

  6. I was overwhelmed with the bond that New Yorkers have and they still tear up if 9/11 is mentioned. They have hearts of gold!

  7. Recycling is REAL here, they will ticket you!

  8. Costco, Target, and I am sure other stores - the flow of the buggys [shopping carts] is just like the highway! Don't get out of your lane, don't text and shop, and you better move when it is your turn!

  9. Magic eraser will get any scratch off of your rental car.

  10. Parking on the street has signs. “9-11 T/Th” means you can’t park there then! So, you have to excuse yourself from your meeting etc, to move your car to the 3-5 then return to move again at 3pm.
