A Heart for Nursing
Registered nurse, Amber Geiger, said her desire to become a nurse was divine inspiration.
“When I was 14-years-old, I asked the Lord what He wanted me to be, and He wanted me to be a registered nurse,” said Amber, who currently works as a nurse on the Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick Campus orthopedic floor. “I thought it was a crazy idea. No one in my family was in medicine, but over time I knew He was right. I love helping people, and I love what I do. It was meant to be.”
After earning her high school diploma through homeschooling, Amber enrolled in the nursing program at the College of Coastal Georgia (CCGA). She credits God, along with two of her nursing preceptors with her successful completion of the program. “Erin, who I can’t remember her last name, and Laura Townsend, who works at the hospital, were so patient and kind. They really helped me make it through.”
