NYP Nurses Featured on NOW on PBS

Oct 27, 2008


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.
