Nursing Is at the Heart of Everything We Do at MSK
The Robbins Family Foundation Honors Nurses
We thank The Robbins Family Foundation for their generous leadership and vision in recognizing the indispensable role MSK nurses play in providing the best possible care for our patients. Under the guidance of MSK Chief Nursing Officer Elizabeth McCormick, MSN, RN, The Robbins Family Awards for Nursing Excellence will honor extraordinary achievements by MSK nurses in patient care, research, clinical trials, teaching, and other areas annually.
Our Nurses are United
The World Health Organization has designed 2020 as the Year of the Nurse. At MSK, our nurses go above and beyond the standard of patient care. Their passion, teamwork, and commitment drive them to deliver unparalleled support.
Each year during Nurses Week – May 6 to May 12 – MSK nurses are recognized for their outstanding service. Honor our nurses with a donation to advance research and patient care.
MSK’s Nursing Leadership
A few years ago, the dedicated nurses of MSK received the nation’s highest honor for excellence in nursing, ANCC Magnet Recognition®. This prestigious award reflects how MSK nurses are at the forefront of clinical care and demonstrate integrity, compassion, and leadership every day.
MSK Nurse-Scientists Are Breaking New Ground
Many of our nurses lead pioneering research and are actively improving patient care at MSK. These inspiring men and women are dedicated to providing evidence-based, compassionate support to cancer patients and their loved ones.
One World-Class Team
Did you know we have a team of specialized nurses who take care of patients in first-in-human clinical trials, the first time a new therapy is given to people? MSK clinical trial nurses play a critical role in elevating these patients’ experience, making sure they receive the highest standard of care and understand every step of their treatment.
