Assistant Director of Nursing, RN
Elisa Jean-Mary received her R.N. (BSN- Bachelor's of Science) from Adelphi University, located in Garden City, New York. She began her career as a staff nurse in a New York hospital. After working as a staff nurse, she decided that she wanted to pursue a career with the elderly. She applied for a registered nurse position on a subacute floor at The Riverside, formerly known as Kateri Residence. This was a challenging role because she was constantly working with the residents who were there for rehabilitation with a focus on returning home to the community. After a few months, she was asked to be the Nurse Manager on the tenth floor where she worked for four years. As a result of hard work and dedication, she was promoted to the position of Assistant Director of Nursing in 2013. Elisa has learned that you have to be a caring and a compassionate person to work with the elderly, whom she loves.
