Mrs. Green joined The Pines at Davidson in 2011 as Charge Nurse for the Health Care Unit and was promoted to Assistant Director of Nursing in May 2012 and to Director of Nursing in 2015.  She left The Pines in 2018 to work as a traveling nurse which gave her flexibility to spend more time with her family. In 2020, Mrs. Green joined the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation as a nursing home surveyor which involved passing a three-hour national exam on nursing home rules and regulations. She is returning to The Pines at our request, which reflects the confidence we have in her based upon her past work with us.  She is a member of the National Association of Directors of Nursing Administration in Long Term Care and through that organization is recognized as a Certified Director of Nursing Administration in Long-Term Care, having passed a national exam and met certain Director of Nursing experience requirements.  She studied nursing at Erie Community College and the State University of New York at Buffalo.  Mrs. Green came to The Pines with twenty years of long-term care experience, having served as Director of Nursing at Meadowood Nursing Center in Gastonia, Assistant Director of Nursing and Staff Development Coordinator at Avante at Charlotte, Nurse Manager at Southminster CCRC, and ten years as a Nurse Manager at a CCRC in Getzville, NY prior to relocating to Charlotte in 2005.  She also worked as a Hospice nurse for many years, but her love for the elderly redirected her path back to long-term care.
