Magnet Recognition

Nationwide Children’s has once again received the highest achievement in nursing excellence.Magnet Status

The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program® for excellence in nursing services has granted Nationwide Children’s Hospital ANCC Magnet Recognition® for a third time. 

This prestigious recognition is the ultimate benchmark in nursing excellence and is awarded to only about seven percent of the nation’s more than 6,000 hospitals across the country. Of that number, only one percent has achieved designation on three occasions and Nationwide Children’s is the only pediatric hospital in the state of Ohio to earn such a status three times.

Nationwide Children’s was the first freestanding pediatric hospital in Ohio to achieve Magnet™ status in 2005 and this latest designation will stand until 2017.
