Excellent Care to Patients and Families The Best Staff In the
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.
