Our Master’s-educated nurse educators teach our professional staff nurses, in many ways shaping the course of nursing. We share our expertise and teach crucial clinical information to our fellow colleagues. In an advancing environment like ours, we direct the future of our profession—generating research, inspiring careers and touching lives, many times over.

The Division of Nursing Education’s primary objective is to support the ongoing clinical competency for over 4,900 Registered Nurses and support staff across all sites. Together, we support the professional development of nurses and nursing leadership at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

  • Opportunities in Nursing Education Include:
  • Orientation
  • Professional growth of nursing leadership

  • Continuing education

Growth and Specialization
We provide didactic and clinical orientation for new colleagues, as well as current colleagues who are changing roles. Specialty courses such as perioperative nursing, emergency care, obstetrical nursing and critical care nursing are designed and taught by nurse educators to nurses new in their specialties. Our nurse educators are also lending their expertise to the development of e-learning courses. Nurse educators plan, manage and teach in the classroom, in the learning labs and on the units. We influence the quality of care by ensuring that nurses are current in their knowledge and develop results-oriented approaches for the evolving world of care.
