Nursing In Atlanta
When you imagine where you would like to live and work in the U.S. once you’ve completed your journey with us, you might think immediately about popular cities like New York, Los Angeles, or San Francisco. But, if you’re looking for quality of life, then don’t overlook Atlanta as your city of choice!
Those who settle in Atlanta will enjoy the community feel of this amazingly diverse city. It’s the kind of place where anybody can feel at home. Atlanta also boasts some of the lowest costs of living in the country (especially for a big city!), making it the perfect place to begin your career as a USRN and raise your family. There are tons of good schools for your kids to attend, and moving here would give them plenty of opportunities to pursue higher education and enjoy multiple career opportunities.
Because Atlanta is such a richly diverse city, the food scene is incredible! It’s likely that you’ll be able to find cuisine from your home region and, even if you don’t, you’ll get to sample incredible foods from a range of cultures from around the world.
Another attraction of the city is the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, the busiest airport in the world. There are non-stop flights to almost any destination, meaning that a visit home is just a short airplane ride away. There are few cities in which travel is so accessible – perhaps now is your chance to explore the world!
For one, Atlanta enjoys moderate winters and warm summers, making it an ideal location for you if you aren’t up to the challenge of facing ice and snow during winter or scorching heat during summer
The attraction of living in Atlanta doesn’t stop there. Adevia Health has partnered with some of the finest healthcare facilities in the U.S. to secure fulfilling roles for our skilled nurses. One of these facilities is Emory University Hospital, a national leader in cardiology, heart surgery, cancer, and neurology. This historic institution has been delivering healthcare for nearly a century! Their predecessor, Wesley Memorial Hospital, was housed in a downtown Atlanta mansion which was fortunately spared from destruction during the Civil War raids led by General Sherman in 1904. By 1922, Wesley Memorial had outgrown its premises and relocated to its current location on the campus of Emory University. It was renamed Emory University Hospital halfway through the 1930s. Here’s a fun fact about the establishment: the new, 275-bed facility was a gift from philanthropist Asa G. Candler, founder of the Coca Cola Company.
The expansion won’t stop there! The hospital continues to grow, just like its family of valued healthcare staff. With the impending addition of the Hospital Tower on Clifton Campus, Emory University Hospital will expand by 450, 000 square feet. There hasn’t been a more exciting time than now to join this respected institution.
