Why Nurses Choose Children’sChildren’s is a top pick among aspiring and experienced nurses alike. But to truly understand why nurses continually choose Children’s, we think you should hear why they stay:

Joshua Clinical Nurse

“To be a MAGNET hospital means you’re elite—from your Environmental Service team all the way up to your COO—you all practice at an elite level. It’s the gold standard. And it really allows all healthcare professionals to care for our patients to the best of our abilities.”
Matthew Clinical Nurse
Lisette-Admin Resource Nurse
“I've been at Children's for 11 years. I started as a new grad and just worked my way up. I was a rapid response nurse, made myself charge nurse, and then really created different opportunities for myself within the unit. I love my job and I love what I do.
