Redesignation For Magnet® Facilities
Maintaining your Magnet® status
In order maintain access to the benefits of Magnet® designation, every health care organization that has been awarded the status must reapply every four years.
The deadline for when an application for redesignation must be received depends upon when the prior Magnet designation was granted. The specific deadlines are outlined below (with the documentation required to reach us by the first business day of the relevant month):
|IF YOUR CURRENT DESIGNATION BEGAN THIS MONTH...||SUBMIT YOUR DOCUMENTS 4 YEARS LATER IN THIS MONTH|
Your Magnet designation won’t expire while the re-appraisal process is being carried out, as long as all of the documentation has reached us by the required date.
The Redesignation Process

Should you wish to send the payment via courier (UPS, DHL, FEDEX)*, the address is:
Bank of America Lockbox Services
800 Market Street
St. Louis, MO 63101
*PLEASE NOTE: The site street should only be used for lockbox remittances delivered via courier. Phone Number: use your own in case of delivery problems.
Step 3: Supportive documents
The final step of the redesignation application is to email the following attachments to MagnetApplications@ana.org (using your organization’s name in the subject line):
- Chief Nursing Officer's curriculum vitae or resume.
- Current facility organizational chart showing the CNO and nursing's relationship to the entire facility.
- Current nursing organizational chart. Include all areas where nursing is practiced.
