Magnet-Recognized Hospital

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is a Magnet® designated hospital, the highest recognition a hospital can receive for nursing excellence and high-quality patient care.

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is recognized as a Magnet® designated hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the largest and most prominent nurses credentialing organization in the world. The ANCC’s Magnet Recognition Program is the highest national credential for professional nursing practice and provides consumers with a benchmark for measuring quality of care.

Being a Magnet designated hospital is the gold standard for nursing excellence and not only benefits patient care and quality, but also creates a nursing environment that attracts and retains high-quality nurses.

What Magnet Status Means for Patients and Families

Magnet is achieved by passing a rigorous and lengthy evaluation process for nursing excellence. The Magnet model provides a framework for nursing practice, research, measurement of outcomes and streamlined documentation. Through this framework, ANCC evaluates applicants across a number of components and dimensions to gauge an organization’s nursing excellence.
