Why Magnet? | Magnet | CHCM

Why Magnet®?

Many health care leaders seek national recognition, not as an end it itself, but as a path to excellence and as a validation of the great work an organization is doing. When an organization pursues Magnet® designation, teams throughout the organization will create, strengthen, and deepen structures and processes to meet the standards for extraordinary performance. Recruitment and retention of a strong nursing and clinical workforce continue to be a top strategic priority for health care leaders. One of the most valued recognitions of distinction, when it comes to recruitment and retention of nursing, is Magnet® designation. Just under 10% of hospitals in the United States have achieved Magnet®. Significantly, many hospitals see this designation as a key to their future success and survival.
