Nursing at Kennedy Krieger

As Kennedy Krieger nurses, we’re experts in taking care of pediatric patients and their families. We’re driven by evidence-based practice and innovative treatments, and we provide compassionate care to the children we treat, whether in outpatient, inpatient, school or community settings. We’re committed to incorporating family-centered care in all that we do by ensuring that a patient’s family members are an integrated part of a patient’s healthcare team.
