Achieving Magnet recognition is a rigorous process, but organizations seek to join this esteemed group because of the benefits and status it conveys. From initial recognition and through the renewal process—Magnet recognition is a credential that reaffirms the hard work and dedication of the entire nursing staff and reinforces the development and use of evidence-based criteria to achieve nursing excellence.
