Magnet Status

What Is the Magnet Program?

The Magnet Recognition Program® was developed by the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC) to recognize health care organizations that provide nursing excellence. When a healthcare organization fosters the ideal environment for nursing talent, the whole organization reaps the rewards. The program recognizes quality patient care, nursing excellence, innovations and improvements in professional nursing practice. By becoming Magnet® recognized organizations empower nurses to reach their true potential.

The Magnet Recognition Program® serves as the gold standard for nursing excellence and provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark for measuring quality of care.
