Baez reflects on how his experiences at work and at home have made him into the compassionate person and nurse he is today.


Formerly a janitor at NYU Langone Health, 2019 NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing grad Frank Baez is now working as a certified bilingual nurse in the cardiothoracic ICU at the same hospital where he started his journey. 

“When I was a housekeeper, my priority was to help my mom to help bring in the money to the house to learn English. Thankfully, through all my experiences with work, I was able to discover my dream,” Baez said.
