Ranked in the top three pediatric centers by U.S.News & World Report, the 205-bed Johns Hopkins Children's Center is a close-knit hospital within a hospital. Here, caring for a full range of sick and injured children, our richly skilled, nearly 100 percent RN workforce enjoys the lowest nurse-patient ratio at Hopkins. The Johns Hopkins Children’s Center is the only state designated trauma center for children under 15 years and it is the designated burn center for pediatric patients in Maryland.
In a specialty where patient care goes hand in hand with family care, we have honed the art of supporting each other. Every new hire--experienced or rookie--can succeed thanks to our in-depth, pediatrics- and unit-specific orientation and mentoring, including an 18 month long psychosocial support group for new grads. And because we prize teamwork and collaboration, we share governance on our units and offer flexible shift combinations.
We encourage ongoing training and continued education. And, we enjoy–and value–time to go play.
