The Magnet Recognition Program® grows in participation and popularity across the US and the globe. Magnet hospitals enjoy higher percentages of satisfied RNs, lower RN turnover and vacancy, improved clinical outcomes and improved patient satisfaction.
Approximately 6.9% of all registered hospitals in the United States have achieved ANCC Magnet Recognition® status. (AHA, Fast Facts on US Hospitals, 2013) Magnet status is not a prize or an award. Rather, it is a credential of organizational recognition of nursing excellence.
