Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are a vital part of our healthcare team at Cincinnati Children's. APRNs provide quality, cost-effective services and clinical care through education, research, and state-of-the-art technology and programs. We value them as expert leaders who are dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional, and developmental needs of infants, children, and adolescents. APRNs are credentialed as affiliate members of the Cincinnati Children's medical staff.

As an APRN at Cincinnati Children's, you will have the opportunity to work with more than 400 nationally certified APRNs in more than 30 specialty areas. APRNs work in areas ranging from inpatient settings, outpatient clinics, research, as well as general and community pediatrics. There are a variety of specialty areas that fall under each setting which allows APRNs to continue to advance their career within the same medical center.

Just a few of our specialty areas include Neurosurgery, Hematology / Oncology, Orthopedics, Pain Management, Emergency Medicine, Newborn Intensive Care, Transitional Care, Pediatric Intensive Care, and Psychiatry.

Qualities We Are Seeking

We also offer additional educational programs for professional development, including an APRN Leadership Development Course, Research Education Series, and more. APRNs are also encouraged to participate with other providers on an APRN/PA Shared Governance Council which empowers APRNs to actively participate in decisions that impact practice.
