At the Hospital for Joint Diseases NYU Langone Medical Center, we have spent the last decade pursuing nursing excellence. We have contributed to a culture of excellence with achievements in patient care, nursing professionalism, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Through shared decision making, professional development, achievement of advanced education, and high certification rates, our nurses have control of their practice. We are committed to improving patient care through nursing research, evidence based practice and quality outcomes.

As bedside leaders, our nurses are proud of the teams they’ve led to produce better staff performance and superb patient outcomes. They are innovative in their application of evidence based practice changes, that have impacted patient, nursing, hospital and community based initiatives. Each nurse in our organization has a story of personal and professional excellence. I am proud of our successes. Please join us as we share our Magnet journey, and witness our joy, our commitment, and our ongoing quest for excellence.
