Recognized for nursing excellence and education
UC Davis Children's Hospital has long been identified as a U.S. center of nursing excellence devoted to optimal, collaborative and evidence-based care. We are privileged to have been granted Magnet® recognition status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center – the nation’s highest form of recognition for nursing excellence – and recently marked our 20th year using the primary nursing model to enhance care and comfort for our pediatric patients.
Advanced education and training continue to be hallmarks of our all-R.N. pediatric nursing staff. Overall, nearly 85 percent of UC Davis registered nurses hold a bachelor’s of nursing or higher, and 14 percent an advanced degree. UC Davis nurses established the area’s chapter of the Society of Pediatric Nurses, and regularly provide scholarly experiences for counterparts from our region and beyond.
The nationally ranked Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis further enhances our ability to conduct research and participate in education, outreach and quality improvement.
