For Englewood’s nurse practitioner Evelina Tuers, the road to RMANJ didn’t begin with a resume – it began with an appointment to see a fertility doctor, instead.
Tuers became familiar with RMANJ several years ago, when she was working as a midwife and referred women struggling with infertility to RMANJ. Soon, she realized she might need to refer herself – she was having trouble getting pregnant on her own and realized she needed help. After hearing so many good things from her patients – who came back to her pregnant – she made an appointment with RMANJ’s Dr. Rybak. Within a year she’d delivered a healthy baby girl.
It didn’t take long for Tuers to get back to RMANJ, this time as a nurse practitioner in the Englewood office, putting to practice her extensive clinical experience in women’s health.
After obtaining her nursing degree from University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ, Tuers worked as a medical surgical nurse at Chilton Memorial Hospital in Pequannock, New Jersey. She enjoyed the work, but her passion was in labor and delivery, something she’d experienced during a clinical rotation at UMDNJ. Soon after, she landed her first labor and delivery job at Saint Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in New York City.
While there, she went back to school and earned her master’s degree in nursing from Rutgers University, and in 2013 began working as a midwife at a local OB/GYN practice, where she stayed until this year, when she couldn’t resist the urge to join RMANJ following the birth of her daughter.
“RMANJ is a long standing leader in the fertility realm, and I knew this was the path my career was supposed to take,” she said.
In her new role as nurse practitioner, Tuers will be seeing patients, performing morning monitoring ultrasounds and leading procedures such as saline sonograms and endometrial biopsies.
Tuers is a board certified nurse midwife, women’s health nurse practitioner, and registered nurse. She is a preceptor for Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Students, Family Nurse Practitioner Students and Midwife Students at Saint Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in New York City and she is the recipient of William Paterson’s Department of Nursing Certificate of Appreciation.
