About the Program

Seattle Children’s is a richly diverse organization. The patients and families we serve come from many backgrounds and bring distinct values, family structures, strengths and special needs. We strive to maintain an atmosphere that reflects our values of inclusion by providing effective and respectful care compatible with each patient and family’s beliefs, values and heritage.

To reach our goals, we are committed to recruiting the best nurses, cultivating an inclusive and diverse workforce and inspiring diverse high school students to pursue a career in nursing. Every year we offer local high school students from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to participate in our Nurse Camp at Seattle Children’s. During this three-day camp, students will gain insights into the world of pediatric nursing by participating in clinical observation sessions, working through hands-on skills labs and engaging with an educational panel to discuss nursing as a viable career path.
