NICHE Designation

Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a NICHE designated hospital, committed to patient-centered care for our older adults and their families. The Department of Nursing is proud to carry the NICHE designation as a sign of our resolve to provide patient-centered care for older adults. NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) is the only national designation indicating a commitment to elder care excellence.

Through our participation in the NICHE program – the largest geriatric nursing program available – we are able to offer evidence-based, interdisciplinary approaches that promote positive experiences for the older adults in our care. This results in improved outcomes and greater patient and family satisfaction.
