Carol Porter, DNP, RN, FAAN, Mount Sinai's Chief Nursing Officer/Senior Vice President, Nursing Department Chair, and Associate Dean of Nursing Research and Education, has been a strong advocate for the importance of nursing in both medical research and clinical practice.
One of Dr. Porter's proudest achievements has been helping to establish the Mount Sinai Center for Nursing Research and Education (CNRE). She has served as the Center's first director since its official launch in May 2010.
An ambitious collaboration between the Icahn School of Medicine and the Department of Nursing, CNRE seeks to advance translational research--bringing the experience and insights of clinical nurses into medical research, while integrating the results of that research into nursing education and patient care.
The 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
