Rachel Pancoe, MSN, CRNP, attended Penn State where she obtained both her Bachelor of Science in Nursing; Minor in Health Human Development & Family Studies and a Minor in Nutritional Sciences. Subsequently, received her Master of Science in Nursing, Pediatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner program from Drexel University.
Rachel brings a wealth of experience working with infants/children in our CICU since 2010. She started in our CICU as a new graduate and came to love caring for patients/families with both acquired and congenital heart disease. Through interdisciplinary collaboration, she learned how to care for children with heart disease, assist in emergent situations and support families during their time of need. With her commitment to learning, she became a clinical resource nurse and a charge nurse supporting a busy CICU, creating safe patient assignments, and supporting staff with just in time education.
In 2019, Rachel became a preceptor in the Advanced Cardiac Education (ACE) Program to train CICU nurses in the post-operative care of neonates and children after cardiac surgery and anticipating patients at high risk for decompensation and cardiac arrest. In addition, learned how to provide in the moment feedback and debrief after handoff care.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
