The Magnet® Recognition Program — administered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the largest and most prominent nurses credentialing organization in the world — identifies health care organizations that provide the very best in nursing care and professionalism in nursing practice. It serves as the gold standard for nursing excellence and provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark for measuring the quality of care.
