It’s striving for excellence, each and every day.

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, this designation goes beyond formal recognition of superior nursing care. We are honored to announce that Akron Children's has earned Magnet® recognition for the fourth time - a testament to our commitment to provide the very best patient care in a high-quality, safe environment that supports professionalism in nursing.

What makes it all possible

When you care for a patient as you would your own child, extraordinary things happen. Here, futures are in your hands. You make an impact on a daily basis, face-to-face, for children and their families. You do much more than treat patients. You get to know them, so interactions mean more. At Akron Children’s, you become a nurse who brings specialized skills and a secret handshake. A dedication to compassionate interactions and to knowing a favorite princess. As the individual your patients come to recognize, rely on and smile at, you go beyond the title of nurse. Because this is more than a job. It’s what you were meant to do.
