    I have to say I appreciate your concern, but I work at NYU, and we are treated extremely well. We're a Magnet hospital and I feel that our CEOs actually take pride in it. I and my co-workers are extremely grateful for the speedy response after the generators failed by the EMS crews, and our own administration arranging for other beds for our patients. There will be no layoffs, trust me.

    Rock on Stephen and Anderson for shouting us out!
    That is true LilyRoseRN. NYU is a very nice place to work.
    However just an FYI ... all travel nurse contracts were cancelled as a reult of this.
    I am a travel nurse that has been coming back and forth since 2009. Myself and a few other travel nurses are like staff there.... except we are not.
    I will miss my co workers.

    I'm so sorry your contract was canceled. However, most of us staff are also canceled for the next few weeks while they get the hospital cleaned up and ready again, so I can't say I'm surprised. Staff is being paid even while we wait to go back to work, which is pretty great in my opinion. Hope you can come back to us for another contract when we're up and running again!

    I was amazed at the way this story was covered across the different networks, but we all know that we can and will do what it takes to treat our patients. I'm proud to be a nurse, and so grateful to Steven for his shout out!!
