Nurses: The Heart of Arkansas Children's

May 03, 2019

More than 1,500 world-class nurses provide expert, compassionate care to patients at Arkansas Children’s. They are the heart of every child’s care team at Arkansas Children’s. They are essential to Arkansas Children’s ability to provide safe, compassionate clinical care to children in Arkansas and beyond.

When a healthcare organization invests in its nurses, patient outcomes, patient safety and family satisfaction improve. Arkansas Children’s has an unyielding commitment to pursue the programs and initiatives that champion the health of children in our state. Which is why one of Arkansas Children’s top priorities is the investment in and empowerment of our nurses.

In March 2017, Arkansas Children’s joined the elite six percent of hospitals worldwide that have earned Magnet status. The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program is the most prestigious distinction a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient outcomes. Magnet hospitals have lower death rates, shorter lengths of stay, higher patient satisfaction and better patient outcomes. Nurses at Magnet hospitals also report greater job satisfaction.

To our donors: Thank you for your investment in nursing excellence at Arkansas Children’s. Your support helps champion children by providing better care, healthier kids and higher patient and employee satisfaction that are hallmarks of Magnet status.

And to our nurses: Thank you for your passion and dedication to the families we serve. You are truly Champions for Children!
