About our nurses
Children’s Wisconsin in Milwaukee is designated a Magnet® hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. More than 80 percent of our nurses have earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing, which is preferred. In partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin, more than 170 advanced practice nurses partner with physicians as members of the Children’s Wisconsin care team.

On the forefront of pediatric medicine, Children’s Wisconsin nurses are using new technologies and applying advanced treatment options. Focused on evidence-based care and outcomes, our nurses are setting care standards—not only adopting best practices, but developing and sharing them too. The competence and expertise demonstrated by our nurses gives both comfort and confidence to patients and families. Here, nurses understand the importance of involving the patient when possible, along with family and other caregivers, in the plan of care.
