Help Keep New Yorkers Healthy Join Our Nursing Team!
Assessment nurses play a vital role in serving our 1.8 million members. The responsibilities of an assessment nurse involve conducting home assessments for prospective members and reassessments of current members. These home visits can include evaluating members’ needs for a home attendant, noting changes in their condition, or even teaching them about their own prescribed medication. Many of our assessment nurses are bilingual. Bilingualism allows for a superior member experience in that our members feel connected and comfortable opening their doors to people who speak their language and look like them.

What our employees are saying
Healthfirst is driven by our members. They are our North Star. While out in the field assessing members and determining how Healthfirst can best meet their needs, I’m most proud to work in the Bronx where I was born and raised. I get to learn even more about my home borough and strengthen my Spanish speaking skills.
Last year was challenging for New Yorkers. But Healthfirst’s Assessment Nurses adapted and still achieved results and provided quality service to members. We’re now back in the field and while there are strict COVID-19 regulations to follow, our nurses are still unstoppable.

Healthfirst is a leader in the healthcare industry. Our team of Assessment Nurses are caring and professional. Even as we dealt with changes due to COVID-19, I’m proud of the key projects I lead this year that helped improved workflow.
I feel so blessed to work for Healthfirst as an Assessment Nurse. I see myself working here for another 25 years or until it is time for me to retire. My manager is so supportive and is quick to aid me with any questions or problems I have. I feel blessed to be part of such an amazing and supportive team.
Noemi BelisAssessment Nurse, Clinical Eligibility
My career at Healthfirst started about 10 years ago as an assessment nurse for the reassessment PHSP plan. Since that time, numerous changes have taken place that required adapting and learning new workflows. All this was made seamless through our team’s effort in giving us nurses the tools, resources and mentoring we needed throughout these changes. I have been able to readily work through the various changes in the workplace due to the support received from upper management.
My adventure here at Healthfirst has been wonderful, and I am incredibly appreciative of the opportunities that I've been given. They are constantly searching for methods to support our education and give us access to more resources so we can enhance our knowledge and careers while working here at Healthfirst.
