Frankie Hamilton's additional information

Frankie Hamilton is a first year PhD student at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. Frankie received his first bachelor’s degree in human development from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, and his first job after college was an entry level administrative position at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center where he truly discovered his passion for helping others. Torn between medicine and education, Frankie pursued a position as a high school chemistry and biology teacher at St. Francis Preparatory School in Fresh Meadows, Queens. Ultimately figuring out that healthcare was where he wanted to be, he pursued an accelerated bachelor’s degree in nursing from SUNY Stony Brook and has never looked back. He has held numerous positions during his eight years of nursing, starting out as a  clinical nurse in medical/surgical, telemetry, critical care and orthopedic units, and moving into leadership positions as assistant nurse manager, quality specialist and most recently, assistant director of nursing for patient care services. Frankie joined the Nurse Reserve Corps of the United States Navy two years ago and is proud to be serving our country in the military healthcare arena. 

Frankie received his master’s degree in business administration with a focus on strategic healthcare management from Hofstra, as well as his master’s of science degree in primary care nursing/adult gerontology from Hunter, with the hopes of using his business acumen and clinical expertise to help advance the profession in some way.  

Frankie ultimately decided the best way to help advance the profession of nursing is as a nurse scientist. His research interests are varied and include men’s health, readmission of patients who suffer from substance abuse disorders, gender roles in the nursing profession and military nursing. He plans on using his varied experiences as a civilian and military nurse, as well as his accumulated knowledge to find new ways to improve patient care and advance the profession of nursing.
