Today at 2:45 pm, we learned that WakeMed has officially earned Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This is a tremendous honor for our organization and a testament to the quality of care we provide to our patients.
Magnet designated organizations are proven quality leaders in nursing care and innovation. Magnet organizations have low nursing turnover, a high level of nursing job satisfaction and nursing involvement in data collection and decision making in patient care delivery.
Though Magnet recognition is a nursing-led initiative, it is an organization-wide designation for us all to celebrate.
