Marina Ryan is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner. From childhood, Marina always had a passion for medicine with a strong desire to help people in every aspect of care. Originally from Russia, she received her Associates in Science degree in Nursing and Bachelor in Science degree in Biology in her country, which made a perfect combination of both sciences for advanced knowledge and a full understanding of how medicine works together with human anatomy and physiology. In 2002 Marina moved to the United States and started working as an Environmental Analyst at a Biochemical laboratory for 5 years, before she pursued her interest in medicine. Marina obtained her ASN from Broward College and took a job as a Registered Nurse at Good Samaritan Medical Center in a Telemetry/Medical-Surgical/Orthopedic Unit, where she gained valuable experience in a hospital setting and at the same time obtained her BSN from Florida Atlantic University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. To expand her nursing experience and gain additional knowledge in a different practice area, Marina changed her career from hospital care setting to outpatient services. While working as a Preoperative/PACU Registered Nurse at Central Palm Beach Surgery Center, she decided to continue her education further and obtained her MSN from Nova Southeastern University, graduating with Honors. During her educational time, she received several honors and awards.
