Lisa Peters, MBA, BSN, RN, NE-BC, CCRN, started her registered nurse career at Lenox Hill Hospital (LHH) with a passion for care and a drive to do all she could to help the lives of others. Today, decades later, her passion is still as great as ever.
Gaining valuable experience at each step of her career, Lisa began as a clinical registered nurse in med/surg, step-down, and the ICU departments, and later became an assistant nurse manager and nurse manager for the surgical stepdown/ICU. But what makes her truly special as an individual is her drive and ambition to seek out ongoing opportunities to develop her skills.
Northwell takes pride in its employees by equipping them with the resources and support they need to reach their fullest potential, including continuing their education. For Lisa, that was a dream come true. Since starting with Northwell, she has benefitted from our tuition reimbursement and paid certification programs. “I love my career here at Northwell because it has afforded me many opportunities to grow personally and professionally,” says Lisa. “I have been able to complete my BSN and my MBA in addition to my NE-BC and CCRN through programs offered or supported by Northwell.”
As compassionate as she is ambitious, Lisa finds these opportunities are the perfect way to help give even more to her patients. Along with a commitment to growth, she values that Northwell encourages interdisciplinary collaboration that results in positive patient outcomes. She says, “Northwell supports us in being our best selves and this in turn allows us to be our best for our patients.”
Her work helping to transform care, optimize patient satisfaction, and create better patient outcomes through teamwork and service excellence, has not gone unnoticed throughout our organization. Just last year, Lisa received the Distinction in Nursing Leadership Award.
Now as nurse manager in the surgical stepdown/ICU at LHH, Lisa is leading and guiding other registered nurses through their own career journeys. “I have a passion for nursing at Northwell because of my own growth, but also because Northwell supports my ability to foster the same growth in others. Anyone who has the desire to grow is nurtured.”
When asked why she loves Northwell Health, her answer was simple. “Our values are not just words on a banner; we actually live by them,” she says.
