According to the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Web site http://www.nursingworld.org/ancc, the Magnet Recognition Program was developed to recognize health care organizations that provide the very best in nursing care and uphold the tradition within nursing of professional nursing practice. It also provides a vehicle for disseminating successful practices and strategies among nursing systems.

 

The Magnet Recognition Program uses quality indicators and standards of nursing practice based on the American Nurses Association's Scope and Standards for Nurse Administrators. The Magnet designation process also appraises qualitative and quantitative factors in nursing.

 

As of November 2006, the ANCC's Commission on Magnet Recognition recognizes 225 health care organizations in 42 states and one foreign country. Magnet facilities must reapply for redesignation every four years.
