This week we are discussing the ANCC (American Nurses Credentialing Center) Magnet Recognition Program (Magnet), an international credentialing program where nurses appreciate nurses for their nursing achievements. It is the highest recognition for nursing excellence within a health care organization! NurseMagnet is a guiding framework whereby you and your nursing colleagues are encouraged to intensify your efforts to improve organizational conditions, components, and processes of health care systems to enhance patient safety. The model serves as a road map for organizations seeking nursing excellence in five areas.

The professional elements are now identified as the “best practices” for successful nurse recruitment and retention. Magnet status is awarded to health care institutions that act as a ″magnet″ for nurses by offering a work environment that rewards quality nursing services. Magnet health care institutions, in turn, enjoy improved patient outcomes. Think about which of the best practices are, or are not, present in your professional life and your strategies for improvement. Then proceed to the learning objectives for this week.
