At Emory Healthcare, our nurses are redefining care.

We are proud to be the only health care system in Georgia with three Magnet®-designated hospitals, because we know that designation reflects our commitment to collaborative, evidence-based care that focuses on the patient.

What Magnet® designation means to us

At Emory Healthcare, we believe that, while Magnet is a nursing designation, it is not just about nurses. Our nurses are integral members of high-functioning, interprofessional teams in hospitals and clinics that are united in a commitment to excellence and outstanding patient care.

Emory nurses work shoulder-to-shoulder with leading physicians and researchers to advance medical discoveries and find new, innovative ways to improve our work, our processes and the care we provide.

From Model to Practice

The Magnet Model forms the underlying foundation for nursing practice at Emory Healthcare. As an academic health system, our nurses are driven to advance nursing standards and practice, challenge the status quo and drive improvements in clinical delivery, nursing research and patient safety and quality outcomes. We foster a culture of inquiry, where we emphasize the ongoing growth and development of our employees.

From our robust nurse residency program to our Professional Lattice for Advancement in Nursing (PLAN), we are committed to connecting our nurses to the positions, clinical education and mentoring that enables them to perform at their best and build their clinical expertise.
