Nurses at Brigham and Women’s Hospital are known for their excellent clinical practice and for keeping patients and their families at the center of all they do. We understand that great care is shaped by relationships with patients and their families. That’s why we’re committed to knowing our patients on a deeper level — not just as patients, but as individuals — to ensure that they, and their families, feel known and cared for.

We are honored to be one of 13 international affiliates of the Watson Caring Science Institute, which recognizes organizations that demonstrate an exceptional commitment to a caring science model and practices for staff, patients, families and communities they serve.

As BWH nurses, we proudly work together with a spirit of inquiry and a deep commitment to providing the highest quality, evidence-informed and theory-guided care in an inclusive environment. We work each day to achieve our vision — to provide excellent care to patients and families, with the best staff, in the safest environment.
