This month we are proud to shine our Employee Spotlight on Eduard Kandov, RN.
Eduard is a registered nurse who works in the Psychiatric Emergency Department and has been with us for five years. He chose psychiatry because he loves to help people who are in need of mental health support and he does his job with pride.
Eduard was born in Bukhara, Uzbekistan, and attended elementary through high school there. At the age of 21 he came to the United States and worked as a hairstylist for many years until he made the decision to begin studying at Queensborough Community College where he obtained his nursing degree. Eduard then completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Ternopil Medical State University and is currently working towards his Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner certification at Fairleigh Dickenson University.
Eduard previously lived in the Briarwood section of Queens and currently lives in Fresh Meadows. He has three children, who he enjoys spending time with. Eduard likes to travel and has been to many different countries including Italy, Spain, and the Czech Republic which he tells us are all beautiful. His favorite foods are from his native Uzbekistan and he also enjoys Italian cuisine. Eduard enjoys all types of music. When he was a child, he played the accordion. As a hobby he collects money from around the world. One of the sports he is fan of is Mixed Martial Arts.
Eduard enjoys working at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center because his coworkers make it feel like a family. We are very happy to have Eduard as part of our team and look forward to him remaining with us for many years.
