About the Northwell Health Returnship Program
At Northwell Health, we’re excited to partner again with Path Forward to support returners. We appreciate the skills, experiences and perspectives that you bring to our company and teams.

Our 16-week, paid returnship program is set aside for returning caregivers like you! The positions are open to professionals with at least five years of experience who are returning to the workforce after a career break for caregiving of two or more years. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply.

During the returnship, you’ll have the opportunity to revamp your skills, update your resume with new experiences, make connections, contribute to a team, and possibly convert to a full-time position. Along the way, you’ll receive invaluable advice, support and mentorship from Northwell Health managers and from Path Forward.

Application information will soon be posted for the Northwell Returnship program. The returnships are available in the Greater New York metropolitan area.

Returnships That Make a Difference

Success Story: Laura C.
Laura took a 12-year break from her career as an HR professional, during which time she raised her kids, acted as her dad’s primary caregiver for a year, and volunteered extensively. She completed her returnship in talent acquisition at Northwell Health, and now works there full-time. Laura talks about her returnship experience and how talking to both her fellow returnees and her peers helped her development. Read her story here.
