Read What They Have To Say About Working At Children’s Friend!
“Children’s Friend is a great place for nurses to work.”
“I love being a nurse at Children’s Friend. Each day here is different, but every day shares this goal: alleviating the effects of poverty on children’s health. Nurses, teachers, social workers, and other clinicians function as a team here. We provide “wrap-around” care to Rhode Island’s most vulnerable children. But they’re not just the most vulnerable, they’re also the most adorable, bright, and hopeful. I feel lucky to spend my days caring for them.

Children’s Friend is a great place for nurses to work. You will find enthusiastic, thoughtful, and intelligent colleagues who share a commitment to social justice and community service. We are offered generous opportunities for professional development, even during the pandemic. Children’s Friend is also an actively anti-racist agency, with a commitment to continuously improve workplace culture and fairness.”
