On Friday, October 24, several of our nurses, along with Wilhelmina Manzano, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer, were featured on the Emmy Award-winning news magazine NOW on PBS for a segment which explored the nursing shortage and innovative measures aimed at reversing the trend. Sponsored by a grant from the Barbara and Donald Jonas Family Fund, the program entitled "Are We Headed for a Nursing Crisis?" profiled NYP nurses at work and highlighted NewYork-Presbyterian as a model for success in retention and recruitment.
