Video: Michigan Medicine works toward Magnet redesignation

September 3, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Strategy & Leadership

In early 2017, Michigan Medicine earned the highest honor in nursing: Magnet designation.

Only 6 percent of U.S. hospitals earn the coveted honor, given by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to organizations that meet rigorous standards for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.

The organization was prepping for Magnet redesignation at the beginning of 2020, prior to COVID-19. The pandemic ended up delaying the process for a year, as priorities shifted and workflows changed.

Now, the organization is once again back to preparing for redesignation, with a new deadline of June 2021. Over the next nine months, faculty and staff will be raising awareness of the Magnet process, conducting a nursing practice environment survey with nurses involved in patient care, and finalizing and submitting documents that reflect how the engaged nursing community at Michigan Medicine demonstrates nursing excellence on a daily basis.
