Excellent Care to Patients and Families • The Best Staff

• In the Safest Environment

Nursing at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is known for their

excellent clinical practice and for keeping patients and their families at the

center of all they do. We understand that great care is shaped by relationships

with patients and their families. That’s why we’re committed to knowing our patients

on a deeper level — not just as patients, but as individuals — to ensure that

they, and their families, feel known and cared for.

At BWH, we proudly work together with a spirit of inquiry

and a deep commitment to providing the highest quality, evidence-informed and

theory-guided care in an inclusive environment. We work each day to

achieve our vision — to provide excellent care to patients and

families, with the best staff, in the safest environment.

Just as we

have been able to reinvent health care, we have also transformed health care

careers. Whether measured in terms of lives saved, awards earned, or the

personal satisfaction of stretching your talents – a career with BWH is unlike

any other in the health care field. Here you'll find a workplace where

collaboration and teamwork are the norm, not the exception – physicians,

nurses, technicians, staff and management form a close-knit bond, based on

mutual respect and devotion to our patients. If you want an enormously

fulfilling career, there’s no better place to be.
