Nursing Faculty and Staff
Larecia M. Gill
Larecia M. Gill has been a Registered Nurse since 1998. Prior to attending nursing school, she completed a certificate program to become an EMT. It didn't take long to realize that EMS was not where she belonged. She went back to school, received an associate's degree in general sciences from Darton College and then continued her education at Albany State University, receiving a BSN. She first worked in a surgical intensive care unit. After two years, she decided to try something new and began a job working in a pain treatment center. For several years she served as the hospital Pediatric Staff Educator at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.
Along with being a Registered Nurse, she is also a wife and a mother to two children. Ms. Gillís husband is a Sergeant in the United States Army and has deployed to Iraq twice and Bosnia once. They have been married since 1995. Georgia has been their home for the duration of their marriage. However, she is originally from a small town in south Alabama.
She attended graduate school at the University of Phoenix and graduated in October 2007 with a MSN/ED degree. She is currently a doctoral student in Georgia State Universityís Ph.D. in Nursing Program. She loves being in the medical field and helping care for people but cannot help asking, "What more can I do?" She is a proud Instructor for BLS and PALS. This allows the opportunity to reach a large audience of people from a variety of backgrounds. She tries to give them a positive experience while at the same time educating them about important issues. It was in this capacity that she first discovered her love for teaching.
