Nursing About Us

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

As the cornerstone of one of the foremost pediatric hospitals in the country, Boston Children's Hospital's Nursing Department strives to provide the highest standard of nursing care for every patient who enters our doors.

Our Philosophy

Patient CareNurses at Boston Children's Hospital believe:

  • In the individual needs and of patients and families.
  • That excellence in care is provided through meaningful therapeutic relationships with patients and families.
  • Boston Children's provides a unique practice environment for the development of leadership in pediatric nursing.

Our Culture

At Boston Children's, we foster an environment in which support for all staff is paramount. Leaders listen to ideas, acknowledge concerns and invite participation in decisions. We operate under a professional shared governance model to maintain and enhance nursing practice through empowerment and point-of-service decision-making.

Working as a Team

The nursing department emphasizes collaboration, continuity of care and education. As part of the professional environment of care, every nurse practices as part of a multi-disciplinary team to provide each patient with effective, compassionate, family-centered care.

Family-Centered Care

Family-centered care, the essence of our nursing philosophy, is a dynamic process that synthesizes the scientific, physical, intellectual, emotional, ethical, spiritual and social aspects of caring. We encourage family participation in care and acknowledge the family's expertise regarding the needs and concerns of the patient.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
- Sandra L. Fenwick, President and CEO
