Pediatric Nursing Careers at Cincinnati Children's

Barb Tofani."Our nurses at Cincinnati Children’s work from dawn to dusk and through the starlit hours to deliver the best possible patient care. When parents bring their children through our doors their focus is on one thing – the best outcome for their kids. The nurses at Cincinnati Children’s help them reach the goal with dignity, respect and lots of smiles. Such quality care is why we were designated a Magnet institution back in 2009. It is an honor to be recognized for our excellence in nursing; it sets the bar higher for what we need to continually achieve." - Barb Tofani, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Senior Vice President of Patient Services
