Our pediatric nurses enjoy working with children – and it shows. In addition to creating a warm, supportive, healing environment for children and families, they provide the highest level of care in every specialty area. With extraordinary clinical expertise, advanced training and credentials, our nurses are among the region’s best.
All Children’s Hospital nurses are registered certified pediatric nurses (CPN), and are certified in both Basic Life Support (BLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). In pediatric specialties, our highly qualified nursing staff maintains advanced training and certifications required for specialty practice.
