Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the Nemours Children's Delaware Valley Nursing Website. On these pages you will find the many ways that nurses embody our mission to provide exceptional care for all patients, families and our community through a shared commitment to scholarship, professional growth and engagement, innovation, accountability and teamwork.  Programs are in place that support nurses to make meaningful contributions to nursing practice and to the Nemours strategic objectives.  We were recognized in 2012 and again in 2017 by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Magnet hospital we continue to pursue discovery, innovation and inclusion to improve the care and health of children and their families.
