Interested applicants learn more by visiting our Nurses4NYC website and apply here. Currently, there are over 9,600 full- and part-time nurses in the NYC Health + Hospital system. The public health system has an array of benefits, including a pension. New nurses can take advantage of the Nurse Residency Program, nursing fellowships, tuition reimbursement, loan forgiveness, and scholarship programs through NYC Health + Hospitals.

“Nurses are at the heart of our mission to provide high quality health services and compassionate care for all New Yorkers, and I am proud of the thousands of nurses who come to our facilities every day to serve New Yorkers in need,” said NYC Health + Hospitals Senior Vice President, Chief Nursing Executive Natalia Cineas, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN. “Being a nurse for NYC Health + Hospitals is so much more than just a job or a career, because our public health nurses play a critical role in serving the most vulnerable patients and communities. NYC Health + Hospitals is actively encouraging and promoting our vision of health equity as part of our overriding mission to help New Yorkers live their healthiest lives. As a part of our vision, we are working diligently to recruit, retain and support a diverse and inclusive nursing workforce.”

Nurse Residency Program
The year-long residency program provides newly-hired, first-time nurses with on-the-job training that focuses on topics including ethics, decision making, clinical leadership, and the incorporation of research-based evidence into practice. The program also provides new nurses with support and mentorship proven to enhance nurse satisfaction, performance, and retention.

Critical Care Nursing Fellowship
Debuting in 2024, NYC Health + Hospitals is launching an exciting Critical Care Nursing Fellowship to provide high-quality care to critically ill patients. This new Fellowship focuses on critical care within a selected range of specialties and includes simulation; didactic, on-site experiences; clinical rotations in emergency, post-anesthesia care unit and telemetry/stepdown units; and providing an interactive and personalized learning experience.

Nursing Emergency Department Fellowship
This 22‐week Emergency Department Nursing Fellowship Program is for nurses with no prior emergency department clinical experience. The Emergency Department Nursing Fellowship Program builds on foundational nursing skills to further enhance the knowledge and skills of fellows to ensure they are equipped to deliver safe patient care in a fast‐paced emergency department.

For accepted applicants, NURSE Corps pays for 60 percent of unpaid nursing education debt over two years, with an option to extend to a third year for an additional 25 percent of the original balance. In exchange, applicants commit to two years at an eligible facility experiencing a critical shortage of nurses.

National Health Services Corps (for Nurse Practitioners)
The National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program offers primary care medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health care providers, including Nurse Practitioners, the opportunity to have their student loans repaid in exchange for providing health care in eligible facilities with limited access to care.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program
The federal government provides student loan forgiveness through its Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program to all qualifying public service employees. Your employment at NYC Health + Hospitals may allow you to take advantage of this program if you meet the program’s requirements.

And Many Other Benefits
NYC Health + Hospitals offers an exceptional benefits package. New hires are eligible to select from a variety of medical plans such as: MetroPlus Gold, HIP HMO, and GHI-CBP. As an employee, you are also eligible to enroll in the pension plan under NYC Employee Retirement System (NYCERS).
