Nursing at Mount Sinai Hospital
Mount Sinai has long recognized the importance of nurses in health care – the hospital established one of the first nurse training schools in the United States in 1881 – and its nursing staff has a distinguished reputation in the health care community.
In 2004, Mount Sinai earned designation of the prestigious American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Award and in 2009, became the first full-service hospital in New York City to earn re-designation for an additional four years. Considered the gold standard for nursing excellence, only six percent of hospitals in the U.S. have earned Magnet status, and just two percent have achieved redesignation.
Center for Nursing Research and Education (CNRE)
The guiding principle behind the Center for Nursing Research and Education, Mount Sinai's groundbreaking, nurse-centered research facility is to bring the nurse's perspective to medical research and practice.
An important new facility within Icahn School of Medicine, CNRE will apply the talents and expertise of nurses in the service of effective translational research. Clinical nurses play an integral role in the CNRE's research projects, bringing their experience in patient care – and their insights into how patients respond to treatment – into the process of research.
At Mount Sinai, our award-winning nurses are leaders in advancing the quality of patient-centered, supportive care. Through our presence on the front line, we make personal connections—managing relationships to keep patients anchored and informed. We maintain the professionalism and expertise that has earned us the Magnet designation for nursing excellence—and that ensures all our patients receive the highest level of care.
Mount Sinai Hospital earned Magnet status in 2004 and again in 2009, ranking it among the nation's elite 6% for having received this gold standard of nursing excellence twice in succession. Learn More
