Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer

Dear Nursing Colleagues,

Our staff is our greatest expression of who we are as an organization – committed, caring and family-centered. Seattle Children’s nurses are experts in taking care of children and their families. The impact and success of nursing at Seattle Children’s is reflected in our many awards and honors, but most especially in our Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services.

As chief nurse, I take very seriously my role in guiding our institution and our nurses in fulfilling our mission and vision – indeed, our promise – to the community: To be the best children’s hospital. We are driven by evidence-based practice, cutting-edge treatments and efficient, cost-effective practices. We strive to provide the best, safest and most compassionate care for the children we are so privileged to serve. We also aspire to be global leaders in pediatric nursing care and practice.
