Whether you’ve been a nurse for years or you’re studying to begin your career, there’s no better place for pediatric nurses to work than Children’s of Alabama. Nurses at this Birmingham hospital love calling Children’s home—thanks to their coworkers and of course, the patients they serve. Learn more about what life at Children’s looks like and start your journey at the upcoming Children’s Nursing Career Fair on Tuesday, February 8 from 9AM-Noon.
Careers at Children’s are rewarding thanks to mentorship + strong support systems
Whether you’ve been working as a nurse for years or your job at Children’s will be your first opportunity out of nursing school, you’ll find a support system that can’t be beat. Programs like the mentor/mentee program in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit provide coaching and support for new nurses who may not know what to do in unfamiliar situations. The Nursing Professional Development department is another support system along the way that trains new pediatric nurses.
“Nursing Professional Development (NPD) is a department that equips nurses to provide safe, effective patient care and the very best experiences to our patients and their families. This department develops recently graduated nurses from the start of their careers, nurses with adult experience but no pediatric experience and current nursing staff. I like to say NPD is here from ‘hire to retire.'”Lisa Cooper, Director, Nursing Professional Development
Plus, regardless of where you work at Children’s, you’ll be surrounded by friendly faces who want to see you succeed in order to provide the best care possible for patients.
Why nurses love Children’s
Children’s of Alabama isn’t just a place to work. Nurses and every staff member here feel the vibrant culture that prioritizes teamwork and support.
Want to know the sign of just how true that is? Even when nurses leave Children’s, many of them find their way back.
“Children’s is a great place to work, with a positive upbeat culture. For the past six years, I have had the pleasure and opportunity to onboard all inpatient nurses. The excitement and energy from this group is palpable. What does not surprise me anymore is how many experienced nurses we have return to Children’s. The reasons for staff leaving vary, but the reasons for returning are similar. I have heard repeatedly, ‘no other hospital treated me as well as Children’s and I missed the kids so much!'”Lisa Cooper, Director, Nursing Professional Development
