Qualified registered nurses, with a minimum experience of one year, have the opportunity to join a diverse team of health care professionals who are committed to caring for all New Yorkers and provide high-quality, personalized home care services for individuals who need special care and support after a hospital stay or help with managing a chronic health condition at home.

“Serving our patients at home is a fulfilling experience, and we welcome nurses from all settings interested in community-based care,” said Vickie Norvell, RN, chief executive officer of NYC Health + Hospitals/At Home. “Choosing to receive care at home is more common now than ever before. Our nurses provide support to patients and their families, often overwhelmed when returning home from a hospital stay. As part of NYC Health + Hospitals, At Home is committed to the same level of patient-centered care that you find throughout our health system.”
