Magnet Nursing, Navicent Health

Magnet® Nursing Recognition Program

The Magnet® Recognition Program was developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to award health care organizations that have proven a committment to excellence in healthcare with dedicated nurses at the core of excellence. The Magnet® Recognition Program highlights achievements worldwide of committed organizations where nursing leadership effectively aligns their nursing strategic goals to foster excellence in patient's outcomes. For our Navicent Nurses, it means transformational leadership starting at the bedside. Navicent Nurses engage in knowledge sharing, empowerment, career growth and autonomy in their professional practice. The Navicent culture supports education and development of our nurses. The journey started in 2005 with the first Magnet® Recognition of Excellence and fast forward to 2015 when Navicent Health received their third Magnet® recognition designation for nursing excellence.


“ We are thrilled to receive redesignation after our nurses have worked so enthusiastically for this achievement.”

- Tracey Blalock RN, MSN, MBA, NEA-BC

Navicent Health is one of 130 organizations worldwide to receive the 3-time designation. The community is the biggest beneficiary for the Magnet® Recognition Program with improved outcomes. Navicent Nurses focus on the patient first and practice in a culture of excellence, innovation and quality.


“Our nurses at Navicent Health are an inspiration to others and set the standard for excellence in nursing.”

- Dr. Ninfa M. Saunders, FACHE
