Compassionate, Caring, Excellent

Bonnie Fryzlewicz

Bonnie Fryzlewicz, RN, MN, NE-BC, Vice President, Patient Care and Chief Nursing Officer

I am honored to work alongside an incredible team of compassionate, caring nurses at Seattle Children’s. Without their commitment to our patients and families, we couldn’t be successful in fulfilling our mission and vision.

Seattle Children’s nurses embody our organization’s values of compassion, excellence, integrity, collaboration, equity and innovation. The impactful care they provide and their drive to improve are reflected in our many awards and honors, especially in our Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services. In 2018, we were recognized for our third consecutive Magnet designation.

I invite you to learn more about nursing at Seattle Children’s by browsing the pages in this section, and by reading our nursing annual report (PDF). Our newest report will be published later in January, so please check back.
