In Their Own Words: Nursing Careers at Westchester Medical Center

 

"When people tell me they are considering Nursing as a career, I always tell them you really should.  Westchester Medical Center is a phenomenal place to work."

 

 

Eileen Letzeiser, RN

High-Risk Obstetrics 

 

Salvatore Manno, RN

Operating Head Nurse for Neurosurgery

 

"Westchester Medical Center is big enough that we see a lot of complex procedures and deal with very sick patients, yet it isn't so big that you become lost in an anoymous institution."

 

"You have to have very strong observational skills in the Pediatric ICU because small children don't tell you when they are not feeling right. They are talking to you one minute and the next minute you notice that their vitals are changing."

 

Janet Scully, RN

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

 

 

Ed Goldberg, RN

Behavioral Health Center

 

 

"Nurses have a lot of say in how the units are run in Behavioral Health. You have to be confident, independent and strong minded to work here"

 

"From the beginning, I was supported by the Nursing Residency program, which really helped in my transition from student to practicing nurse. And I've received ongoing support from my more senior coworkers."

 

Jiattashey Allen, RN, 5 North

 

 

Jeremy Arnett, RN

Cardiothoracic ICU

 

 

"When you are caring for a patient who is being kept alive by a VAD, your awareness heightens and all your skills are being used.  We've had patients like that who have turned the corner and come out of it fine - that's rewarding."
