Johns Hopkins All Children’s gets nursing honor
The American Nurses Credentialing Center has named Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital as a Magnet designated hospital. The recognition is considered the highest nursing honor a hospital can receive. There are only 498 Magnet hospitals across the world and fewer than 8 percent of U.S. hospitals have received the designation, a news release said. In order to become Magnet designated, a hospital must undergo a rigorous process, including submitting hundreds of pages of documentation related to patient care, intense evaluation and a site visit from ANCC. The designation is reviewed every four years.
