Hannibal Regional Medical Group welcomes Tori Greving, FNP-C, to their new Infusion Center. Tori has been practicing in the Hannibal area for over 18 years. She started her career at Blessing Hospital in 1999 before moving on to medical oncology at Quincy Medical Group in 2002. In 2007, Tori came to work for Hannibal Regional Hospital as a Registered Nurse, first in the Intensive Care Unit, and then in Radiation Oncology. In 2015, Tori started working as a Nurse Practitioner at the James E. Cary Cancer Center in medical hematology/oncology.
“After working as an inpatient nurse in oncology, I decided I wanted to get into the hematology/oncology field,” says Tori Greving, FNP-C. “I took care of hematology/oncology patients while they were in the hospital, but always wondered about them after discharge. Once graduation for my Nurse Practitioner degree drew near, I knew I needed to find a way to continue with my desire to work in oncology and be able to help these patients and families. I have done many different types of nursing over the years, but working with these patients is special; they know you are helping them fight, they are appreciative of the care you give, and after a while it’s like we become a family.”
Tori has a passion for working in the hematology/oncology field. “I love to be [the patient’s] cheerleader, educator, counselor, shoulder to cry on, and not to mention their ‘waver of the checkered flag’ at the end of treatment, congratulating them on success,” stated Tori. “But we all know there is the other side, those who do not respond to treatment, or get very ill during treatment, I am privileged to be there for those patients, too. There are ups and downs, but I would not be the person or Nurse Practitioner I am today if I had not crossed paths with all the patients and families I have helped in one way or another over the years. I find it very gratifying to be a part of their journey.”
