A message from our chief nursing officer

When I talk about nursing at Le Bonheur, I like to say that this is a place where nurses “walk the talk.” Here, family-centered care isn’t just a catch phrase, it is our reality. Nothing is of higher value than our family partnerships, and nurses are vital members of the care team. We know that strong bonds between team members and families lead to high-quality care that achieves the best possible outcomes for our children.

There is so much passion and compassion to be found at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. As chief nursing officer, I strive to provide a progressive practice environment where nurses continually learn and grow. Our values drive our journey to excellence, and our high expectations are met with sweeping recognition. I am so glad you are interested in learning more about nursing at Le Bonheur. We are committed to excellence in patient care and dedicated to nursing engagement. We are proud of the nurses who practice here.

I believe that nurses are the heart of Le Bonheur. I encourage you to explore this website and watch the video below to learn more about this wonderful hospital.

Professional practice

The inspiration for our nursing Professional Practice Model quilt came from our founders -- a women’s sewing circle who called themselves the Le Bonheur Club. The patchwork quilt symbolizes our relationships and the diversity of our team. Our nurses are all uniquely talented -- and together, we work toward one common goal: to be at our best while caring for our patients and families.

Our professional practice is rooted in the five Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare values: service, quality, integrity, teamwork and innovation. These values anchor and drive our practice. Patients and families are at the heart and center of all we do. Caring is the work of nursing. The other foundational principles of our nursing practice model include:
