U-M Health again earns nursing’s highest honor through Magnet redesignation

Magnet Designated for Nursing Excellence

University of Michigan Health nurses continue to be recognized as among the best in the nation, again receiving the highest honor in nursing.

The American Nurses Credentialing Center announced on March 17 that U-M Health, of Michigan Medicine, achieved Magnet redesignation for the second time. The prestigious Magnet distinction, awarded to less than 10% of U.S. hospitals, recognizes health care organizations for quality patient care and outcomes, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.  

U-M Health achieved its first Magnet designation in early 2017 after a rigorous and lengthy process that required widespread participation from leadership and staff and included written patient care documentation, an on-site visit, and a review by the Commission on Magnet Recognition.
