Developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the Magnet Recognition Program® distinguishes hospitals with a commitment to nursing excellence and outstanding performance by the entire organization. At Akron Children’s Hospital, this designation goes beyond formal recognition of superior nursing care. Magnet-level care is the foundation from which our organization’s reputation grows and is a way of life for our team. Earned through hard work, collaboration, and commitment to a higher standard for excellence, Magnet matters and attracts the very best.
Magnet organizations are places where nursing leaders successfully align their nursing strategic goals to improve the organization’s patient outcomes.
The Magnet Recognition Program provides a roadmap to nursing excellence, which benefits the whole of an organization.
To nurses, Magnet Recognition means education and development through every career stage, which leads to greater autonomy at the bedside. To patients, it means the very best care, delivered by nurses who are supported to be the very best that they can be.
