Ever wonder what nursing opportunities we have within our community hospitals? As one of the nation’s largest and most respected health systems, Northwell Health takes pride in the care it gives throughout each community. Learn about two of our Joint Commission recognized hospitals and how you can become part of their expanding team of nurses.
This 204-bed teaching hospital delivers high quality care to the dynamic communities of eastern Nassau County and is expanding their cardiac unit. This team features a multidisciplinary approach to patient care and their highly respected nurses play an integral role in each patient’s experience. Every shift, nurses collaborate with Physicians, Case Managers, Social Workers, Dietitians and Physical Therapists to advocate for each of their patients. The telemetry unit has a 24/7 telemetry technician and their patients enjoy single bedded rooms. We are proud to boast a very high retention rate for our nursing staff.
A major perk working for Plainview Hospital – flexible scheduling. Their nurses work 13 days out of a 28 day period and are at liberty to self-schedule their shifts to meet their lifestyle and needs.
“We work as a family here. There is clear, hands-on leadership within every department. Every day I go to the units and help as much as I can.” – Tom Luzzi, Director of Patient Care Services, Medicine/ Surgery/ Telemetry
