Barnes-Jewish Hospital has more than 3,500 nurses working with one goal in mind – to provide exemplary care for patients.
Our academic medical setting provides a challenging and rewarding environment where nurses can flourish.
Through embracing evidence-based practice and conducting research, they advance the science of nursing.
We take great pride in our status as a Magnet®-designated hospital. This is the highest national recognition for excellent nursing practice and we are among an elite group of hospitals who have held this designation since 2003.
Barnes-Jewish nurtures an environment where nurses can practice to the top of their license. We ensure future excellence by providing nurses with ongoing professional development and by helping them obtain certification or advanced degrees.
We also provide opportunities for our nurses to be leaders – whether they lead clinical teams or choose to “lead from the bedside.”
