Our Magnet Journey

It is official ~ we are on the Magnet Journey! The Magnet Recognition Program® was developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to recognize healthcare organizations that provide the very best in nursing care and uphold the tradition within nursing of professional nursing practice. The program also provides a vehicle for disseminating successful practices and strategies among nursing systems.
