Why you'll love working at Seattle Children's:
We're proud of the awards that recognize the quality of care we give our patients and families, and the supportive work environment we provide for our nurses and other health professionals.
Magnet Designation: Seattle Children's is the only children's hospital in the Northwest to receive Magnet Recognition. This honor is bestowed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), sponsor of the Magnet Recognition Program. In 2013 we received a four-year re-designation, following our original recognition in 2008 as a Magnet organization for excellence in nursing services. Magnet hospitals go through a rigorous re-designation process every four years.
Beacon Award for Excellence: Our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) was granted the Beacon Award for Excellence in 2015 from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. For nurses, the Beacon award signifies a positive and supportive work environment with greater collaboration between colleagues and leaders, higher morale and lower turnover. Applicants are judged in the areas of leadership, appropriate staffing, use of evidence-based practices, outcome measurement, effective communication and a focus on learning and development of nursing staff.

Best Place to Work: Our positive work environment has been recognized by third parties, including Becker's Hospital Review in its 2014 list of 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare. The organizations on the list were chosen for their robust benefits packages, positive work environments, excellent employee recognition programs and opportunities for professional development and continuing education.
