Earning and maintaining Magnet designation is often referred to as a journey – which is exactly what it is. The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program® distinguishes health care organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. Magnet is the highest honor for professional nursing practice that engages, involves and benefits the entire organization and the patients it serves. Advocate Aurora currently has 10 Magnet recognized hospitals with several others on the journey to designation.
