Understanding and embracing the ‘Big Picture’ is critical to forging successful partnerships and collaborating with many members of the clinical and administrative teams.”

Accessible Leadership

There’s a real connection between our nurses and senior leadership. Our nursing leadership team is open, creative and nothing short of transformational, with a clear vision and excitement for where to lead the nursing profession. At each location, Vice President & Chief Nursing Officers (CNO) bring passion to advancing nursing practice. Together with their leadership teams, CNOs support our nurses in the pursuit of nursing excellence.

There’s an indescribable feeling that all of our nurses are going somewhere together, that we’re achieving for both our patients and our fellow nurses. We recognize that, in our profession, immediate access to experienced and expert colleagues is invaluable. Our CNE, Wilhelmina Manzano, along with her team of Vice President & Chief Nursing Officers, sets the stage for many exciting initiatives. Our CNOs work closely with nursing teams to bring alive the mission and vision of NewYork-Presbyterian. Our CNOs advocate for supportive practice environments while also fostering nurse leadership development. We advance talent. We effectively mentor, educate and support certification at all levels.

“We have leaders at the senior level who are incredibly generous and gracious, who understand how to mentor, discuss, take a lesson and challenge with compassion. When you talk to any member of our staff, you’ll hear a theme that permeates: that this is an excellent place to work.”
— Wilhelmina Manzano, MA, RN, NEA-BC, Senior Vice President & Chief Nurse Executive

Constant Collaboration

Decision-making is collaborative. Partnering with all members of the health care team is an expectation. We believe in shared governance and shared clinical decision-making. Our shared governance committes and councils meet frequently at the Unit, Department, Executive and Cross Campus level to discuss goals, best practices, quality measures, safety and more.

Our care delivery model focuses on a strong emphasis on one-on-one patient relationships. This provides the structure to work with patients and families throughout their stay to achieve the best outcomes.

Picture over 6,000 nurses practicing at the top academic medical center in New York City. A medical center that includes an outstanding children’s hospital, an excellent community hospital, a renowned psychiatric nursing facility and an unrivaled ambulatory care network. Combine all this with two of the most prestigious medical schools. And what does that yield? One amazing and caring team.

With our exceptional nurses, nothing gets in the way of Making It Possible.
