The New York City Mayor’s Office of Talent and Workforce Development held a press conference on October 24 to highlight the milestone of 5,000 nurses trained through the Citywide Nurse Residency Program, a workforce development program that supports early career nurses with additional education and mentoring. The Citywide Nurse Residency Program is the first city-run nurse residency program in the nation. The New York Alliance for Careers in Healthcare (NYACH), in partnership with GNYHA, developed and implemented the program.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Deputy Mayor Maria Torres-Springer thanked GNYHA for supporting the program. Chief nursing officers and alumni from the program also attended the event, which took place at the NYC Health + Hospitals/Gouverneur campus.
