At Northwell Health, nurses are passionate about caring for our patients, our communities and each other. We advance both the art and science of nursing through an environment that educates and empowers.

About nursing at Northwell

Nursing at Northwell is all about excellence—which is exemplified at our six Magnet® facilities and numerous other award-winning locations. 

Our culture of shared governance fosters teamwork and communication to ensure that everyone's voice is heard. Nurses throughout our health system proudly care for a wide range of people, from the tiniest of patients to those with the wisdom of many years lived.

Our nurses practice in an environment that reinforces their professional role and autonomy, demonstrates consistent and high-quality leadership support, and includes nursing in institutional decision making.
