Our nurses are known for their excellence in nursing practice and their compassion and commitment to improving the health of their patients. They choose to practice at Montefiore because of the people, experiences and opportunities that our unique organization offers.
Exceptional Staff of Committed Nurses
Nurses who join Montefiore choose a career, not a job. Studies have shown that stable practice environments allow nurses to provide better care. Our remarkably low nursing turnover and vacancy rate, and a highly experienced and educated nursing staff are all important considerations for patients and nurses who choose Montefiore.
Whether they are teaching or learning, Montefiore nurses are always on the move. Through our generous tuition and continuing education reimbursement programs and seminar days, our nurses have ample opportunities for growth and professional advancement. They regularly attend outside professional development programs and internal in-service programs are regular occurrences.
