Our Culture

TeamworkAt 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.

  • Cultural Competence: Sensitivity is one of Boston Children’s core values. The hospital is committed to educating all employees to be mindful of the cultural perceptions of their patients and families. Our nurses understand that culture can impact a clinical encounter and are therefore always respectful of our diverse population’s needs, values and preferences.
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.”
