Nursing at Cook Children's is about caring. The way we care for our patients is guided by our Promise and values and focused on one thing – the patient experience through family-centered care.

We believe that in order to give children the highest level of care possible, we have to include the entire family. Research shows that family involvement helps patients recover from illness quicker, so our nurses always include parents as partners in their child's care.

Our Magnet-designated hospital is consistently ranked as one of "America's Best Children's Hospitals," by U.S. News & World Report. We are a state-of-the art regional hospital with an inspiring Promise to improve the health of every child in our region.
