Eveth Green and Marilyn Ramdeen – National Nurses Week
Nurse Practitioner Eveth Green, FNP-BC, MSN, RN, MBA, serves as Assistant Vice President of Nursing at AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY). ACPNY is one of the largest primary and specialty care providers in the New York Area, providing quality, personalized care that is focused on the whole patient. Eveth has been with the medical practice since its inception, nearly a decade ago.
Born in the Cayman Islands, Eveth spent her early years in both the Cayman Islands and Jamaica before moving to the U.S. She recalls being inspired to go into nursing by her aunt, a nurse practitioner for 60-plus years, and by her sister, a nurse for over 40 years. Her first career was in finance and accounting but even then, she always knew she’d eventually become a nursing practitioner. Eveth transitioned to nursing about 14 years ago. Since then, she has had multiple roles at ACPNY, lending her medical expertise to the press during the height of the pandemic, and brought the DAISY Award, a quarterly patient-nominated recognition for exemplary nurses, to ACPNY.
This year, Eveth was awarded the United Hospital Fund’s Tribute to Excellence in Healthcare. The Tribute to Excellence in Healthcare recognizes Quality Improvement Champions across the New York metropolitan area for their personnel leadership. Eveth received this prestigious award because of her work implementing nursing systems as ACPNY became one of the first sites in New York City to rollout both COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, specifically to underserved communities.
Marilyn is the Regional Clinical Director for the Queens region of AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY). She was born in Guyana but raised in New York. She comes from a long line of healthcare professionals so naturally she followed in her family’s footsteps. Marilyn has worked in healthcare for 21 years; she started her career as a medical assistant before transitioning to nursing. Marilyn joined the Queens Long Island Medical Group in 2006, and stayed on when the practice transitioned to become an ACPNY location. “Nurses are an unstoppable force. We are the heroes of our healthcare system, and I think the past year has shown that even more,” she explains. “It takes a very special person to say that they want to be a nurse and mean it.”
