The gold standard for nursing care, Magnet recognition is given by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), which is a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association and the largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization.
The Magnet Recognition Program provides consumers with a way to measure the quality of care based on indicators and standards of nursing practice as defined in the ANCC’s Scope and Standards for Nurse Administrators (2004).
