What does it mean to be a Magnet Recognized hospital?
The Magnet Recognition Program® is administered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the largest and most prominent nurses credentialing organization in the world. It recognizes health care organizations that provide the best in nursing care and professionalism in nursing practice. The Magnet Recognition Program serves as the gold standard for nursing excellence and provides consumers with the benchmark for measuring quality of care.
These standards must be demonstrated in an extensive written document submitted to the ANCC. A site visit takes place after the documents are reviewed, to allow appraisers to verify, clarify and amplify the document through extensive onsite interviews and unit tours. The designation is granted for four years, during which time the ANCC monitors Magnet facilities to measure whether they are maintaining high standards of care.
Research shows there are clear benefits to hospitals that achieve Magnet status, and to the communities they serve.
Being a Magnet Recognized hospital:
- Increases consumer confidence
- Helps attract and retain top talent
- Advances nursing standards and practices
- Fosters a collaborative culture
