Lauren E. Monroe, ANP

Lauren Monroe was born in Knoxville, Tennessee. She attended the University of Tennessee for both undergraduate and graduate nursing degrees. She earned her Masters of Science in Nursing in Adult Health in December 2009. She was a member of the Sigma, Theta Tau international Honor's Society of nursing during her time at the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

Since completing her Master's of Science in Nursing and being board-certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center in 2008 and 2009, she has worked for cardiology at Blount Memorial Hospital and Blount Memorial physicians group. There she provided care for patients in the hospital and in the outpatient setting. She enjoys providing cardiac care and meeting the needs of patients with cardiac issues. The most rewarding aspect of her job is identifying needs and being part of a team of healthcare providers who are able to meet those needs and see the lives of patients improve. This is not limited to strictly cardiac care. She also enjoys the fact that her job gives her the opportunity to work with the aging population.

Lauren was inspired by one of her former teachers to become a nurse. She discovered she had a love for biology and the healthcare field after taking an anatomy and physiology course from this teacher. Realizing she enjoyed interacting and connecting with those around her, nursing was a natural choice.

Lauren and her husband live in Knoxville with their two children. They enjoy spending time together as a family outdoors and attending college and professional sporting events in the Knoxville area.
