Duke University Health System Achieves Magnet Recognition

Duke University Health System (DUHS) achieved Magnet Recognition again on November 14, 2018, a testament to its continued dedication to high-quality nursing practice. The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program ® distinguishes health care organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. This credential is the highest national honor for professional nursing practice.

The recognition includes redesignations of Duke University Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital and Duke Raleigh Hospital as Magnet-recognized organizations. This voluntary credentialing program requires hospitals and health systems to apply for redesignation every four years. Only about 9 percent of U.S. hospitals have earned the organization’s designation.

The Magnet Recognition Program ® designation indicates achievement of high standards of quality care delivery for patients and their loved ones and a positive professional practice environment for staff. It also represents a focus on care delivered by nurses who are institutionally supported and empowered to achieve excellence.

"This honor is the culmination of continuous effort by DUHS nurses to ensure the best possible care for our patients and their loved ones wherever they receive care in our health system," said Mary Ann Fuchs, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, vice president of patient care and system chief nurse executive for DUHS.
