Professional Growth and Development

At Children’s, the Department of Nursing supports the career aspirations of all of our nurses and encourages nurses to periodically assess career goals. Children’s believes that professional development is an important component of providing excellent patient care outcomes.

Conferences and Webinars

Nurses at Children’s can apply to attend local, regional and national professional conferences to enhance personal and professional development and to share information with their peers.


Several nursing fellowships are available to those seeking advanced clinical experiences tailored to specific interests and learning needs. We offer a Neonatal Critical Care Fellowship, Critical Care Nursing Fellowship, Perioperative Fellowship, and more. The length of the fellowships varies depending on the specialty.
