Children’s National is a nationally renowned health care center that specializes in pediatric care. It is the only facility of its kind devoted entirely to pediatric care on the Eastern Seaboard.

CNS PACU – Pre and Post Anesthesia Care Unit
Clinical Nurse Specialists are highly qualified professional nurses that actively participate in the education of other nurses in their unit in addition to contributing to research projects. In the Pre Anesthesia Care Unit, nurses prepare the patients and their families for operations, use communication skills to assess potential problems, and intervene as necessary to provide effective care. On the day of surgery nurses analyze and consolidate the existing information, and begin the physical and emotion preparations that accompany surgery. In the Post Anesthesia Care Unit, nurses are integral in preparing patients for the transition to post operation care and monitoring. Nurses also are the main source of care in the extended observation period of patient care.
