There is something special about the nurses at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. You can see it in the respect they get. You can hear it in the compassionate way they speak up for and care about children and their families. From the moment they enter the room, their high energy and intelligence set them apart. They are professionals who excel in the stimulating environment of a top-3 children's hospital and research center. They are instrumental in developing best practices and are encouraged to continue their education and advance their careers. What's more, Cincinnati Children's has earned Magnet recognition − the gold standard for nursing excellence and collaboration among all care providers and patients. Organizations that earn Magnet recognition must demonstrate evidence of the 14 "forces of magnetism" − variables that create an environment that attracts and retains high-quality nurses and clinical staff − in both the documentation and a site visit. Only 5 percent of hospitals in the United States have earned Magnet status.
If you have not worked in a pediatric nursing environment in the past, rest assured that you will receive all necessary training at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Cincinnati Children's provides individualized orientation for all nurses who are new to Cincinnati Children's. We will provide development education, a customized orientation based on your unique needs and previous experience, an assigned preceptor with whom you will work side by side (typically for six to eight weeks) and instruction on providing family-centered care. At Cincinnati Children's, you will also be compensated for the qualifications, experience and abilities you bring to your career with us.
At Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, we are changing the outcomes for patients and their families as we strive to be the leader in improving child health. Our nurses are the pulse of our institution. Listen to what it means to them to have chosen a career where they can bring the joy of healthier kids to the world.
Men make up just 5 to 6 percent of the nurses in the US. Leaders in Patient Services decided to change things. Cincinnati Children's employs more than 100 men in nursing roles, with an active recruitment effort in place to attract even more.
Visit the local chapter of the American Assembly for Men in Nursing (AAMN). Bill Lecher, MBA, MS, RN, and several other male nurses at Cincinnati Children’s began the chapter in 2007 with the support of the hospital’s Department of Nursing Recruitment and Retention.
