Children’s Nursing Education Department


The goal of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt Children's Nursing Education Department (CNED) is to provide our diverse and engaged staff with a variety of tools and learning opportunities designed to enhance their existing skills and advance professional development.

From orientation and onboarding, to professional development opportunities and everything in-between, the CNED team strives to provide learning products and solutions that meet the evolving needs of our staff.

While most of the services that CNED provides are directed towards our pediatric nursing staff, the department also designs and delivers training and communications that are relevant to VUMC non-licensed staff, leadership, and the community at large.
