Cardiac Surgical Services Careers
The surgical services provided at NYU Langone are comprised of several inpatient patient care units specializing in general surgery, bariatric surgery, cardiovascular-thoracic surgery, orthopedic surgery, organ transplant surgery, vascular surgery, plastic surgery to name a few. Nurses interested in this area will learn about the post-procedural management of many different surgeries/procedures and how to approach each case with patient-centered care. Units are comprised of both acute care and step-down level acuity. In our surgical service, the transplant and plastic surgical services recently performed the most complex and comprehensive face transplant to date, requiring 26 hours of surgery!
The cardiac services provided at NYU Langone are inclusive of Invasive Cardiology, Non-invasive Cardiology, and Cardiovascular Surgery. Invasive cardiology houses a cardiac catheterization lab with a 24/7 STEMI service and an electrophysiology lab that performs both adult and pediatric procedures. Additionally, within our comprehensive cardiac services, special programs include a heart failure service and a multi-disciplinary ventricular assist device (VAD) service.
Being a world-class academic medical center, we have access to cutting edge technology and procedures. The electrophysiology, cardiac catheterization, and non-invasive cardiology labs perform cutting edge procedures for conduction mapping, implants, structural and revascularization. For example, some procedures have changed the way our team manages patients’ heart failure, and allows them to dose patients’ diuretics based on daily pulmonary artery pressure trends which prevents congestive heart failure exacerbations.
The radiology service at NYU Langone is comprised of state of the art imaging and invasive vascular and neurologic procedures. Nurses provide an integral position in the interdisciplinary team, supporting patients diagnostic and intervention procedures. With rapidly evolving advanced imaging and minimally invasive procedures, patients can often avoid surgery and have faster recovery. In addition, having just received the Joint Commission designation of comprehensive stroke center, our interventional neuroradiology procedures have also become the gold standard of care for treating acute large vessel occlusive strokes.
Within each specialty and patient care area, our teams are multidisciplinary. Our team values communication, collaboration, and consistent care. We are looking for highly motivated, caring, critical thinkers with a variety of experiences to join our team and help enhance the services. To achieve success, an ideal candidate will display a strong motivation towards learning and researching evidence-based practice to maintain the growth and development of our renowned services. Nursing plays a large role in the successes of our services.

The Medical and Surgical ICUs are “closed” units and staffed with Registered Professional Nurses with expertise in critical care nursing, and board certified critical care intensivists 24/7. Our Medical ICU nurses care for patients with multiple comorbidities including cardiac, pulmonary, neurological, orthopedic, oncological and obstetrical emergencies, sepsis and shock. Our Surgical ICU serves patients who have undergone complex cardiothoracic, peripheral vascular, plastic or ENT surgery, as well as those with general surgery complications.
The Cardio-Vascular ICU is an immediate post open heart critical care unit staffed with Registered Professional Nurses. Medical collaboration is with CV Surgery and Intensivists. This unit will be the foundation for the future unit combining cardiac surgery and cardiology intensive care.
The Alert team proactively rounds on patients and provides support to nursing staff regarding a plan of care for patients who may be showing signs of clinical deterioration. The Alert Team responds to adult resuscitation responses and MRT’s. Our critical care team — intensivists, nurses, respiratory therapists and pharmacists, along with the Alert Team RN’s are part of the hospital’s resuscitation response team.
Our Hemodialysis nurses provide inpatient care to patients with renal failure based on evidence-based standards and recommendations from the American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA), the National Kidney Foundation/Kidney Dialysis Outcomes Quality Initiative (NKF/KDOQI,) and the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN). Hemodialysis nurses have achieved certification in nephrology nursing (CNN).
NYU Langone offers unique opportunities for professional growth, a rich clinical environment dedicated to research and discovery, and continued learning through our Nurse Residency and Advanced Professional Development programs. A formal Clinical Ladder Program also rewards excellence and progressive experience, and recognizes all levels of knowledge and expertise.
“After years of working as a bedside nurse in the ICU, I learned how to utilize critical thinking to analyze a situation and make quick decisions. When I moved into my current role, the transfer process with both my manager and HR was a smooth transition. Even after I transferred, my previous manager and I have maintained a good relationship. Now, as a Sr. Nurse Clinician, I use the skills I spent years honing to now help reduce stress from nurses during emergency situations. To continue learning, I take advantage of the conference reimbursement allowing me to attend critical care nursing conferences every year.”

Emergency Medicine Careers
The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine re-opened its doors on April 22, 2014. Made possible by a $50 million gift from Ronald O. Perelman, the new facility offers triple the space of the former ED, including 40 patient care treatment spaces. And, for the first time at NYU Langone, it also includes a dedicated pediatric space to help young patients and their families feel more at home. This enables us to treat upwards of approximately 200 patients per day in the renovated Emergency Department, which serves as an NYC 911 receiving center that is designated for hypothermia, stroke, and STEMI (ST elevation myocardial infarction).
The expanded 22,000 square-foot space includes state-of-the-art resuscitation and trauma bays, as well as an orthopedics room; an ob-gyn room; a special room equipped for psychiatric emergencies; negative pressure rooms; a medication room staffed by a pharmacist 24/7; and three triage rooms. Other features that benefit both patients and staff are a new lift system that employs slings that attach to the ceiling to help move patients, greatly reducing the risk of back injuries; special floors that make it easier for staff to be on their feet for long periods of time; and air that is not re-circulated, helping to reduce the chance of spreading infectious disease. We also employ a direct-bedding model to reduce wait times for patients.
The Emergency Department’s professional practice model is such that nursing staff, at every level, can participate in a variety of committees and councils within the department and hospital wide. Shared governance is evident as councils advise on pertinent clinical issues and identify particular areas of opportunity for staff-led educational initiatives and quality projects. We have won numerous internal awards for our quality and safety programs, and have gone on to present these at many national conferences.
