After earning his BSN degree in 2008, Josh moved to NYC to begin his nursing career. As many new nurses do, Josh began working on a medical/surgical unit, and eventually found his passion for palliative care. Josh was one of the first nurses to work on the palliative care unit at Mount Sinai Hospital, and, shortly after, became one of the first to be certified as a hospice and palliative care nurse. After a few years of bedside nursing, Josh transitioned into the role of clinical coordinator for the inpatient palliative care consult service. Recently, Josh was asked to develop a new program that embeds palliative care within the critical care team in the medical ICU for the purpose of providing services to critically ill patients.

Also, In 2014, he was named the overall winner of the Mt Sinai Boards of Trustees 33rd Annual Award for Excellence in Nursing Practice during Nurses Week ceremonies. Fifteen nurses from the Mount Sinai Hospital and Mt Sinai Queens were honored for their compassion, leadership, special abilities to teach and mentor, innovation, and devotion to excellence in patient care.
