Welcome ANCC Magnet apPRAISErs: Proud to be WakeMed!

July 07, 2015

This July, we welcomed apPRAISErs from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition ProgramĀ® who visited WakeMed for four days. Nurses and employees from throughout our organization gathered at the main entrance of Raleigh Campus to offer the apPRAISErs a warm greeting and show their WakeMed pride. The ANCC Magnet Recognition Program was developed to identify and honor health care organizations that provide quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice. Magnet recognition is the ultimate credential for high-quality nursing worldwide, and WakeMed has been working toward it for years. During their visit to WakeMed, the ANCC apPRAISErs thoroughly surveyed our organization to determine if we will receive the Magnet designation.
