What patients and families need to know
We offer opportunities for nurses to enhance professional development in nursing practice, education, administration, and research aimed at improving patient care outcomes and patient safety.
Nursing at Children's National Hospital is integral to the mission of Care, Advocacy, Research and Education. Learn how our Nursing Residency Program, also known as our Transition to Practice Program, trains the next generation of pediatric caregivers.
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.

The Simulation Learning Center is an integral component of nursing education programs offered to Children’s National registered nurses.
