Nurses at St. Louis Children's Hospital are encouraged to pursue certification in their practice specialty. To assist in this process, all nurses are eligible to receive funding for both initial certification exams and the costs associated with re-certification. All nurses, regardless of length of service, are eligible to receive funding.

In addition to financial support, our certified nurses are celebrated annually during Nurse Certification Week. Each certified nurse in the organization is invited to a breakfast and is given a gift that recognizes their contribution to the organization by being certified.
