What has the Pathway designation meant to you?

The Pathway designation at NYC Health + Hospitals/South Brooklyn Health is more than a recognition.  The designation is a cultural transformation for our organization.  Our Pathway-designated South Brooklyn Health nurses are valued members of the healthcare teams and practice to the full scope of their licensure rooted in the standards of a positive practice environment in safety, quality, leadership, professional development, shared-decision making, and well-being. 

How do you feel the PTE framework has supported you during this time?

The PTE framework’s healthy working environment at South Brooklyn Health creates and supports an atmosphere for our nurses with meaningful shared-governance foundations that values our nurses’ opinions and decisions to improve their clinical practice settings and their professional well-being.

What do you hope to do in the future to support your PTE designation?

I hope to carry the excitement and momentum we have now to further enhance our activities under each standard.  I want to continue the improved nursing retention and satisfaction we are experiencing due to the initiatives we’ve put in place for professional development; reward and recognition; optimal nursing quality outcomes; supportive leadership to our nurses.


In order to maintain current awareness about our designation, we are creating sustainability plans and actions around the pathway standards through nursing excellence celebrations and updating our PTE boards and educational materials as new projects are launched and implemented.
