Center of Healthcare
At NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, you’re at the center of the New York healthcare world staffed with top colleagues striving to achieve the utmost for patients. Nurses who succeed here are drawn to, and inspired by, constant challenge and opportunity. Leadership here is setting the pace for nursing professionals everywhere. Your task is to work collaboratively with empowered colleagues to put the patient first.
Spotlight on Requirements
Our preferred New Graduate Nurse is BSN prepared, with a minimum 3.0 GPA and eligible for New York State licensure. He or she already has patient-focused hospital experience independent of nursing school rotations (i.e. a nurse externship or nurse assistant).
More Than a Career
So get to know us. Our stories are amazing. As a nurse at NewYork-Presbyterian, you’ll not only be challenged to put innovation into practice, you’ll also gain the skills that will guide and nurture your career.
Our Hiring Process
We’re proud to offer a limited number of New Grad Nurse opportunities. There’s no formalized hiring New Grad ‘start date’. NYP offers new hire orientations each month. We hire throughout the year. These positions open either when a unit expands or a current nurse leaves. Note: our nursing turnover rates are well below the national benchmark.
Each year, we receive more qualified applications than we can accommodate on our team. We are committed to placing New Graduate Nurses. We believe in promoting from within. Preference is given to NYP employees who have completed a nursing program, NYP nurse externs, students who rotate throughout NewYork-Presbyterian and employee referrals. If not placed as a New Graduate nurse, we hope that you will consider joining the NYP team throughout your career. Many of our finest nurses have joined our units after spending a year or two elsewhere.
When You Apply
In keeping with the respect we show all nurses, we commit to giving each application personal attention. Once submitted, you’ll be considered for all NYP opportunities. You will receive an e-mail to acknowledge receipt of your application. Since you only apply once, please indicate your specialty or specialties in your cover letter.
IMPORTANT: You’ll only need to submit your information once, as we continually refer back to our pool of qualified candidates. We contact candidates who meet the qualifications as soon as positions become available.
There are many ways for BSN Students to join the NYP Nursing Team. NewYork-Presbyterian offers a limited number of nurse extern opportunities at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/ Westchester Division sites each summer. This externship is available to junior BSN Students entering their senior year. More information and job postings will be made available each March. NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center offers part-time Nurse Attendant positions and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center offers part-time Nursing Companion positions year round for BSN Students interested in joining the NYP team.
UHC Nurse Residency Program
We support new graduate nurses from the moment they join our team. In collaboration with University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), new grads on each campus participate in our Nurse Residency Program. This program is designed to support you as you begin the transition from new grad to full-fledged RN.
What It’s About
Promoting professional practice through clinical and educational workshops, this residency lasts one year and begins immediately after your new nurse orientation. As a resident, you’ll attend a monthly seminar on applied learning topics. You’ll process clinical experiences in supportive groups. You’ll be tasked to complete an evidence-based change project by the end of the year. Best of all, you’ll collaborate with mentors, preceptors and staff as you grow.
What We’re Learning
This program is part of a national research study helping hospitals and organizations learn more about the needs of newly licensed nurses. Participation in the data collection is, therefore, a critical aspect of your residency. You’ll be helping hospitals across the country champion the development of new graduate nurses.
How To Take Part
This program is provided as a part of your new graduate nurse educational experience at NewYork-Presbyterian. All new graduate Staff Nurses hired within one year of graduating from an accredited nursing school or hired into their first RN position are included in this wonderful transitional program. You will learn more about the program from your Nurse Recruiter, the Nurse Residency Program Coordinator during Nursing Orientation and from your Patient Care Director.
