Collaborative Settings As nurses, we pride ourselves in our model of shared decision-making. We practice autonomously and collaborate seamlessly. We enjoy a leading voice in hospital-wide strategies of care. Perhaps that's why NYP physicians strive for our nurse-selected “Physician of the Year” honors.
Nurses are involved at every level, from unit and campus councils to multidisciplinary rounds. Whether at the bedside, in the operating room, out in the community or in the ICU, you are an equal partner.
Nursing at NewYork-Presbyterian
Our nurses work with pace-setting technology and equipment. Our information systems provide the basis for evidence, research and measured outcomes that are among the highest in the nation. Without the attentive care of our nurses, our world-renowned treatments would never be as effective.
For example, In 2011, NYP nurses pioneered using iPads to reduce pain and anxiety in pediatric patients. This intervention was so successful, NACHRI invited us to present at the 2011 Creating Connections Conference.
With over 4,500 nurses, we represent the hospital’s largest healthcare profession. We’ve instituted daily quiet times, discharge calls and other service enhancements—leading the charge in improving the patient care experience.
For example, in 2012, one of our neurological nurses was lead author in an article published in Critical Care Nurse on “Shivering Management.” It featured a bedside assessment scale that evaluates the metabolic stresses of shivering in patients.
