Nursing programs with experts from Maimonides
Continuing nursing education and career development
Academic affiliations and on-site courses
Nursing continuing education is central to our mission and a foundation for excellence. We have long-standing academic affiliations with the best nursing education institutions available.
At Maimonides, education encompasses more than advanced medical knowledge. We encourage our nurses to become certified in their chosen clinical areas, and we also provide them with leadership development programs, conferences, symposia, lectures, grand rounds, workshops, internships, and other training. These opportunities foster the management and communication skills necessary to lead in tomorrow’s healthcare world.
For convenience, we offer on-site courses in partnership with Long Island University for nurses interested in earning their BSN or MSN for those who already have their bachelor’s degree. Some of our nurses who have an MSN choose to further their knowledge by serving as adjunct professors at local nursing schools.
Tuition reimbursement is available to full-time and part-time nurses earning advanced degrees in NLN or CCNE accredited nursing programs.
Clinical ladder and senior staff status
Maimonides strongly supports career development. The clinical ladder is a system that encourages nurses to apply for senior staff status. Nurses become eligible to apply for level 1 senior staff status after they have been employed as a nurse at Maimonides for at least 1 year and have met the requirements.
After 2 years as a nurse at Maimonides and the completion of set requirements, a level 1 senior staff member can apply for level 2 senior staff status. Maimonides offers a generous salary, commensurate with each year of prior nursing experience.

Our approach to nursing
Our nursing practice is guided by the:
- American Nurses Association Code of Ethics
- American Nurses Association Scope and Standards of Practice
- American Nurses Association Social Policy Statement
- New York State Board of Nursing Scope of Practice
American Nurses Association Social Nursing Policy Statement
The practice of nursing, indispensable to healthcare and the well-being of society, is the “protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities; prevention of illness and injury; alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human responses; and advocacy in health care for individuals, families, communities, and populations.” (American Nurses Association, 2010 p. 3)
American Nurses Association Code Of Ethics
Ethics is an integral foundation of nursing. Nursing’s distinguished history of concern for the welfare of the sick, injured, and vulnerable and for social justice, encompasses the prevention of illness, the alleviation of suffering, and the protection, promotion, and restoration of health in the care of individuals, families, groups, and communities. (ANA Code of Ethics, 2010)
