Magnet Designation Denotes Nursing Excellence

As you explore a career path in nursing, it is important to know that your employer is committed to nursing excellence. The Magnet Recognition Program, administered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), is the highest national honor in nursing and distinguishes organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence.

RWJBarnabas Health is proud that all of our hospitals are progressing toward Magnet designation, and we are honored that six of our hospitals have already earned this prestigious recognition.

What Does It Mean to Be a Magnet-Recognized Hospital?

As a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association (ANA), the ANCC is the world’s largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization, working to elevate the profession of nursing. Magnet recognition reinforces the culture of excellence that is at the heart of nursing at RWJBarnabas Health and is a reflection of professionalism in nursing practice, teamwork and superiority in patient care.

Research demonstrates that Magnet recognition provides specific benefits to health care organizations and their communities, such as:

  • Higher job satisfaction among nurses
