Magnet Recognition® from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is the highest and most prestigious distinction a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and high-quality patient care. With only 8% of U.S. hospitals earning the Magnet designation, it’s clearly the gold standard. But exactly how does Magnet recognition contribute to improving a hospital’s bottom line?

Magnet status isn’t a prize or an award. It’s a performance-driven recognition credential. Achieving it brings not only external prestige but wide-ranging internal benefits. Evidence is mounting that taking the Journey to Magnet Excellence™ has a dramatic impact on quality, service, cost, and human resource measures. It enables healthcare organizations to:

  • promote quality in a milieu that supports professional clinical practice

  • identify excellence in the delivery of nursing services to patients

  • provide a mechanism for disseminating best practices in nursing services. more
