Our Magnet Designation

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A MAGNET-DESIGNATED ORGANIZATION?

Magnet designation is a known key indicator by which the nation's very best hospitals are measured by the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC).  The renewal of our designation is a testimony to the tremendous focus and commitment of our nurses, nursing leadership and all members of our interdisciplinary teams provide to our patients.

In order to achieve Magnet designation, VUMC had to satisfy a comprehensive set of criteria measuring the strength and quality of nursing and interdisciplinary collaboration.  We received Magnet recognition for our quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice.

Creating a Magnet culture at Vanderbilt has attracted the best of the best in all disciplines; supporting low turnover rates and a high level of job satisfaction throughout the Medical Center.
