The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Be part of our next breakthrough.

As a nurse at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), you will be part of the nation’s first hospital devoted exclusively to the care of children. Since 1855, CHOP has fostered medical breakthroughs and innovations that have improved pediatric healthcare and saved the lives of countless children.

Our compassionate care and commitment to innovation have repeatedly earned us a spot on U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of the nation’s best children’s hospitals, and families come to us from around the world because we offer unique treatments that aren’t available anywhere else.

Excellence in nursing

Our nurses are valued for the exceptional care they deliver in more than 50 locations across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. When you join our team, you will be part of an organization recognized for excellence through our designation as a Magnet institution by the American Nurses Credentialing Center — a distinction held by less than 6 percent of healthcare institutions.

We value our nurses at CHOP for their contributions to the patient-family experience and we encourage them to be actively involved at all levels of the organization. They’re often asked to serve on decision-making bodies that address excellence in patient care and the safe, efficient and effective operation of the hospital.

At CHOP, we’re proud of the strong collaborative working relationships that our teams develop within and across the healthcare disciplines. We believe teamwork promotes excellent patient care and a healthy workplace. If you are a nurse looking to practice in an innovative, collaborative and outcomes-focused environment, you will find it here at CHOP.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion

Families facing complex conditions come to CHOP from all over the world. Creating a workforce that reflects our diverse patient population and the communities we serve is important to our mission of delivering culturally competent, family-centered care. We believe that each employee brings a unique worldview that contributes to the high quality of patient care, research and education for which we’re renowned.

We continually build and maintain diversity in our workforce through a variety of programs, initiatives and strategies. These include:

  • The CHOP Diversity Council, which oversees and supports the CHOP Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan.
  • The CHOP Cultural Awareness Council, which advises on and guides cultural awareness events, experiences and opportunities.
  • Employee resource groups and affinity groups, which broaden access to personal and professional development and growth opportunities through mentoring, volunteerism and community involvement. These groups also provide opportunities that allow the voices of employees to be heard and the power of diverse thinking to influence the policies, protocols and practices that define our workplace.
  • Our Office of Diversity and Inclusion, which applies the standard of diversity, inclusion and cultural competence in rating the performance of our organization’s leaders.

Our commitment to diversity has earned us many accolades, including recognition as an LGBT Healthcare Equality Leader, a distinction awarded by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation that recognizes healthcare institutions that are leading the way in providing equal care for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender patients.

Our focus on professional growth

At CHOP, we help children grow and thrive — and we offer these same opportunities to the professionals who make up our team. CHOP is a unique work environment, with exceptional team members, supportive managers and state-of-the-art training. Our employees are all empowered to realize their well-defined goals, because we believe everyone makes a difference — it’s the very foundation on which our hospital was built.

All nurses at CHOP participate in the Professional Advancement Program, which provides a foundation for clinical development and career progression. We believe the process of learning is an invaluable tool, and encourage our nurses to exercise their ambitions and take their skills to the next level at every opportunity.

Our benefits program

We offer employees a comprehensive and competitive benefits program. Our total rewards package meets employees’ individual needs as well as those of their families.

Our benefits are designed to support our diverse workforce, so our offerings are vast and varied. We’ve designed our benefits program based on the belief that all employees need flexibility, financial security, a meaningful work experience and work-life balance. All of our benefits programs focus on achieving and maintaining our employees’ well-being.
