Amazing Things are Happening Here in Nursing
NewYork-Presbyterian Och Spine Hospital is an exciting place to work. It’s amazing to see patients who were uncomfortable or in pain become completely new people; they’re literally transformed, and the nursing team I belong to is key to that. We change people’s lives, and I’m so proud to be making such a big difference.
— Karl Williams, BSN, RN
Before I became a nurse, I worked in pharmaceutical sales. I spent a good amount of time around nurses and was always amazed by their work. While I was in nursing school, I was a nursing companion at NewYork-Presbyterian and this solidified my passion for nursing. I’m part of a family here, a community that changes lives every day.

When you’ve been with NewYork-Presbyterian for nearly 20 years like I have, you build strong bonds with your team. It’s a privilege to guide, support, encourage, advocate for, and work with these incredible, dedicated professionals. Seeing them grow is second only to seeing my patients get better when it comes to job satisfaction.

I’m a nurse practitioner and the program manager of a unique pediatric mental health outpatient clinic. This type of service didn’t exist here before I joined. New programs like this are not unusual at NewYork-Presbyterian. If you identify a gap and have an effective idea of how to fill it, our leadership is willing to give you the tools to bring it to life.

I work in one of the preeminent family planning clinics in New York. It’s so important to this area of medicine: we have hosted highly regarded physicians’ studies that have made a huge social impact. It’s also an invaluable resource for the Washington Heights community. This is NewYork-Presbyterian’s mission in action.

Ever since high school, I felt the need to do things for others. First, I joined the military where I served in the Navy. Then, I worked with animals. Eventually, it brought me to NewYork-Presbyterian. Right now, I work in Nursing Support and studying to become a nurse. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
