Mount Sinai Nurses:
Leading Change, Advancing Patient Care

As a nurse at Mount Sinai Health System, you will have the opportunity to practice nursing the way you always wanted to—at the highest professional level, and in a stimulating and supportive environment where your expertise is truly valued and your voice is heard.

We make it possible for you to be a valued member of a team of interdisciplinary, innovative care providers and a full-fledged professional who can work with autonomy and professionalism. You will work alongside recognized leaders within the health care team, engaging in a collaborative approach to care delivery. We are dedicated to providing the education and support essential to your success, while also fostering evidence-based practice, research and scholarship that advances nursing care.

Our nurses practice in an environment of mutual respect and commitment. While each hospital or facility may have its own unique culture and areas of expertise, our true strength lies in the collaborative spirit of our network and our common mission. Just ask the millions of New Yorkers and visitors each year we are privileged to call our patients. By sharing our outstanding resources, ideas and technology, we are better able to make a true difference in the lives of our patients throughout the metropolitan area.

At the heart of this care is a family of dedicated clinicians who treat each patient with compassion and respect. Like our patients, they come from all walks of life and from all over the world. Their varied backgrounds, native languages and cultural awareness allow them to more easily relate to the diverse communities we serve.

Just as we care for our patients, we care for our nurses – from a physical, emotional and professional perspective as well:

The Center for Nursing Research and Education at The Mount Sinai Hospital is one among only a small number of nursing centers established within a medical school nationally, providing many opportunities for our nurses to engage more formally in educational and research.

The Beatrice Renfield Center for Nurses at Mount Sinai Beth Israel is a shining example of our commitment to caregivers. It’s a place where nurses can work on research or schoolwork, take a wide range of courses on critical care or holistic therapy, hold a group meeting, or just relax with a cup of freshly-brewed coffee.

Across the seven member hospital campuses, we are committed to continuing our nurses’ education – on site, off site and at colleges. We provide a variety of educational programs within the nursing department, as well as an open invitation to all RNs to observe grand rounds of the clinical specialty of their units. Our staff nurses are fully involved in the education of nursing students, something that considerably enhances the working life of our students.
