IntroductionAtlanta

A nurse in America will be well situated in Atlanta, the capital of Georgia. The city’s metropolitan area houses over six million people, as such it is now the tenth most populous in the USA. The city sprang from the joining of two railway lines. The invading Union forces strategy dictated that the city was burnt to the ground in 1864.

However with typical local vigour and drive it rose from the ashes in the immediate peace time of the late 1860’s. It ultimately became a large commercial centre and South East transportation hub with an international reputation. The airport became the world’s busiest in 1998. Uncommon amongst major US cities, Atlanta exerts considerable international influence and this has created a diverse economy, with dominant sectors that include logistics, professional and business services, media operations, and information technology.
