Today we are celebrating an important achievement for UNC Hospitals. The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®, the largest nursing credentialing center in the country, awarded UNC Hospitals with Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services.
This designation honors organizations that meet stringent standards — placing UNC Hospitals among only 378 facilities in the world and only 6 percent of hospitals in the United States to receive this acknowledgment.
UNC Hospital’s Magnet status would not be possible without the dedication of our nurses, and entire staff, to provide superior quality care to all patients every day. It is also a result of our truly collaborative efforts during the application process. Our Magnet initiative committee worked together to compile and submit a 1,400-page report to ANCC reviewers, and to host a panel of ANCC evaluators.
To everyone who took part in this endeavor — thank you. Our success is a reality because of you and your desire to further UNC Hospitals’ mission to be a leader in providing excellent care. Congratulations!
