We Are Caring For Children

At Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, we share a simple purpose: the health and well-being of children.

Providing the highest level of care to every patient is central to our nursing practice. We integrate the principles of patient- and family-centered care into every aspect of the care continuum. This means that the family is a valued member of the care team who participates in the planning and evaluation of their child's care.

As nurses, we work hand in hand with our physicians and other healthcare professionals, bringing skill and compassion to every patient we treat and always putting the needs of children first.

We play a vital role at all levels of patient care within the inpatient, outpatient and intensive care settings. When a child is admitted to Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, he or she is assigned to a team of nurses that is responsible for well-coordinated care. This ensures better continuity of care, improves better communication with parents, and helps each child feel more comfortable.

We know what it takes to truly connect with children. We know that children are not small adults. That's why we've all received specific training in pediatrics to helps meet the developmental and emotional needs of children in all specialties.

Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital provides continuing education and training that empowers us to create an environment of innovation. Nurses at all levels throughout the Hospital are encouraged to be the best that they can be and to make a difference in the lives of their patients and families.

At Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, we consider it a privilege to care for children whose families have placed their trust in us. We take comfort in knowing that we are making a difference in the lives our patients.
