Posted: 10/1/2010 at 5:12:31 PM

The opportunity to walk through difficult times with families and be able to serve as a support to them. As a nurse, you immediately become exposed to very personal information about patients, and it is a privilege and honor to be allowed to share in their lives. Nurses have a bond with families that is unlike any other. Whitney, Clinical Nurse III, BSN, RN 8th Floor M.I.Unit - 2-1/2 Years with The Children’s Hospital Leaving work everyday knowing I have made a positive impact in my patients’ and families’ lives. My patients are resilient and bring a smile to my face everyday. Kree, Clinical Nurse IV, BSN, RN 8th floor Medical Inpatient Unit - 5 years with The Children’s Hospital We strive to make our patients feel like they are our only concern for that moment. They become part of our family and we become part of their support. When you can make a profound difference in another’s life, you get excited about coming to work and meeting the next patient -- the next potential family member! The philosophies and practices at TCH make these moments possible and I feel very privileged to be part of this amazing and truly caring institution. Chris, Clinical Coordinator, BSN, RN, CPN, Pulmonary Unit - 10 years at The Children’s Hospital I am fortunate to work at a nationally-ranked facility with a culture that merges the best pediatric medical practice through science, research, history and expertise with our holistic approach that includes family-centered care, cultural awareness, and practice with loving-kindness. My professional opinion and suggestions are valued and respected as an integral part of developing each patient’s plan of care. I am proud to work for TCH and be a part of all the care that happens here daily. Sparrow, Clinical Nurse III, BSN, RN, Pulmonary Unit - 4 years at The Children’s Hospital
