A message from our Chief Nursing Officer
Kimberly S. Glassman, PhD, RN, NEA-BC
Senior Vice President, Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer
This is an exciting time for nursing, as we position our profession as leaders in improving healthcare for all citizens in our nation. The Affordable Care Act has provisions for advancing the education of nurses, for improving access to healthcare for all and for developing new models of care delivery, many of which provide new roles for registered professional nurses and advanced practice nurses.
We are extremely proud to have achieved Magnet Recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for the third consecutive time. Nurses at NYU Langone, strive for nursing excellence and the highest quality patient care.
Our professional model, the DNA of Nursing, has three components: evidence-based practice, caring and leadership. Our model’s building blocks of practice, collaboration, communication and professional development provide a foundation from which NYU Langone nurses demonstrate the highest level of professional nursing practice for our patients and their families.
Here at NYU Langone, nurses can choose from many clinical services and programs to begin or mature a professional career path that can span decades. The many opportunities that are available for nurses at all levels from new baccalaureate RN graduates to advanced practice nurses offer the ability to deliver world class nursing care in an intellectually-stimulating academic environment. Nurses at NYU Langone demonstrate their professional practice through participation in the various councils that govern the practice of nursing, the quality of our care, and the discovery of new knowledge.
Continuous learning is a way of life at NYU Langone. Nurses address the pursuit of new knowledge through our many educational programs, participation in our Nursing Research Council, and our McClure Scholars Program, where nationally-known nurse researchers join us for a year and lead us in developing a staff-designed evidenced-based project that improves care to our patients. The Susan Bowar-Ferres Research Scholar Fund supports individual staff nurses in gaining expertise in evidence-based practice and research.
Join us in our journey to serve our patients and their families through excellence in caring, and to discover new knowledge that helps our patients’ live better, longer and more productive lives. Please explore our website and I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and discuss your role in leading high quality and safe patient care at NYU Langone Medical Center.
