ANCC Magnet Designation
In 2010, all of UNC Hospitals celebrated upon learning that we achieved ANCC Magnet Designation® -- a national designation for nursing excellence awarded to very few hospitals by the American Nursing Credentialing Center. We were re-designated again in 2015 and are on our journey for a third designation. Since 1993, ANCC has established the standards of practice that have proven to deliver positive outcomes for nurse work environments and patient care. The leadership team's commitment at UNC Hospitals to achieve Magnet status advances our mission to continually improve nursing quality in the pursuit of excellence.
