Nurse Achievements and Recognition

We’re Honored to Help Our Nurses Grow 

Children’s National recently earned the Helios HR Apollo Award for Mentoring and Coaching, recognizing our nursing team’s emphasis on talent development. We deeply value our nurses and support them with the coaching and mentorship they need to advance not just their careers, but the future of children’s healthcare.

Our Care Earns Nursing’s Highest Honors

Children’s National was once again designated a Magnet® hospital in 2020. Only 3% of Magnet hospitals nationwide earn redesignation after achieving an initial designation for excellence in nursing and patient care. For our dedicated and skilled nurses, the honor means hard-earned recognition. The Magnet redesignation process occurs every four years.
