ANCC Magnet® journey

 
Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, has achieved Magnet nursing designation
 
The Magnet® Recognition Program designates organizations worldwide where nursing leaders successfully align their nursing strategic goals to improve the organization’s patient outcomes. The Magnet® Recognition Program provides a roadmap to nursing excellence, which benefits the whole of an organization. To nurses, Magnet® Recognition means education and development through every career stage, which leads to greater autonomy at the bedside. To patients, it means the very best care, delivered by nurses who are supported to be the very best that they can be.
 
Baylor University Medical Center was designated for the fourth time in May 2018 and is seeking its fifth designation.
