“Independent research indicates that Magnet Recognition hospitals exhibit improved nurse-to-patient ratios, increased levels of patient satisfaction, reduced mortality and morbidity rates and significantly higher educational preparation of the registered nurse workforce.”  - American Nurses Credentialing Center


Magnet Recognition speaks volumes about our nursing care.

In 2014, Nationwide Children's achieved Magnet® recognition for the third time from the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Commission on Magnet..
Magnet recognition is the highest national credential for nursing excellence, serving as the gold standard for nursing practice. With this redesignation, Nationwide Children’s retains our place among the best of the best as part of the Magnet community—only about 6 percent of the nation's 6,000-plus hospitals have earned Magnet status. Less than 3 percent of that group has earned redesignation and less than 1 percent has been designated a third time. 
Our nursing staff leads the country in evidence-based practice and research. This achievement is evidence we are an organization dedicated to providing excellence in nursing services and the highest quality of patient care.

Nursing expertise brings skill and comfort to every situation.

From the clinic to the operating suite, Children’s Neonatology nurses are highly trained and deliver specialized care to babies and their families. The nursing team includes neonatal nurse practitioners, case managers, operating room nurses, NICU/NCSU nurses and staff nurses. Each nurse works collaboratively with other medical professionals in both inpatient and outpatient settings to provide the best possible care.
