At North Shore-LIJ, we understand that caring for our patients begins with caring for our people. Therefore, we work hard to keep our nurses happy and fulfilled, providing them with the opportunity to make a difference in treatment, in outcomes, and in quality improvement. Achieving this means creating an environment in which learning never stops, and ensuring the support, resources and tools that foster growth are always available. This includes education, mentoring, coaching or preceptor programs, collaboration and encouragement.

Grow Your Career with Us

Our unique Institute for Nursing enables staff nurses, nursing educators, nursing researchers and nursing practice leaders to enhance their knowledge and expertise in a professional practice environment. In this collaborative setting, nurses on all levels have a voice in making decisions that improve patient care and create a healthier, more supportive workplace. Here, you will have the opportunity to conduct research, extract best practice and articulate your expertise through publications and presentations, both within and outside the health system.

Additional educational opportunities are available through our corporate university, the Center for Learning and Innovation (CLI). There, we offer over sixty diverse courses designed to develop your nursing, management, business and personal skills. Within CLI is our Patient Safety Institute that features a state-of-the-art virtual reality human simulation lab, enabling you to diagnose and manage clinical problems without risk to real patients.

We offer a robust nursing extern program for student nurses; fellowship programs that allow nurses to efficiently and effectively transition into Critical Care or ED units; and partnerships with local colleges for on-site education and various nursing degree programs – including our Doctorate of Nursing Practice.

By offering courses and resources that are relevant and exciting, we’re not only expanding the learning capacity of our organization, but we are building leaders who will advance our system’s strategic goals and objectives.
