Viewed around the world as the ultimate seal of quality and confidence, Magnet designation is the most prestigious distinction a health care organization can achieve for nursing excellence.
Nurses who win the Nursing Excellence Award must demonstrate Mag-
net program ideals including leadership; professionalism; involvement in research, publications, and formal lectures; certifications and education; and clinical excellence.
