A Sign of Strength: Nursing at Children's

Be the Difference in a Child's Life

Being a nurse is more than just protocols and medication rounds; it is knowing when a hug is the most important thing in the world to a child. It is knowing that, sometimes, laughter is the best medicine. It is giving patients and families what they need when they need it.

Working at Children's

Nurses are at our patients' bedsides every day, supporting them through every triumph and setback. With all of the time and extra energy you give to our patients, we want to support our nurses with transitional and career advancement programs. If you think you have the strength to join the ranks of one of the country's most elite group of nurses, apply today.
