In celebration of National Nurses Week, Emory Saint Joseph's hospital introduces Andrea Greene.

How long have you worked at Emory Saint Joseph’s?

Two years.

Why did you choose a career in nursing?

I decided to become a nurse when I was in the hospital as a child. I thought the nurses were the most amazing people I had ever met, and I wanted to be just like them.

Why do you love nursing, and why is it important to you personally?

I love nursing because I have a very nurturing personality and it lets me express that. Because we see people throughout the recovery and multiple surgeries we are able to form unique bonds with patients on our unit. Each one is different and very special.

What is your current role?

I am currently a floor nurse on 3 South precepting a new graduate nurse.
