And the Gold Beacon Award goes to…

AACN Beacon Award

The spotlight is on the nurses of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital as we celebrate the recognition given to them by the Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN). The AACN has awarded all three of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital’s specialized intensive care units with a gold-level Beacon Award for Excellence in patient care – a tremendous honor, considering Nicklaus Children’s is one of only two free-standing pediatric hospitals in the nation to have achieved the status of having three ICUs awarded gold-level Beacon Awards. Quite a few standards and criteria must be met in order to receive this recognition, and it is all thanks to the nurses and staff of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), who work endlessly to provide the best care possible for the patients and their families. Congratulations and keep being an excellent team!
