In 2006, Martha Jefferson Hospital received initial designation as a Magnet® organization by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), an accomplishment held by less than 6 percent of hospitals in the country
On July 21, 2011, Martha Jefferson achieved Magnet® redesignation by the ANCC. To achieve re-designation, hospitals must demonstrate sustained structures and processes to support exemplary nursing practice, as well as evidence of quality outcomes, new knowledge, and innovations.
We are currently gathering evidence for our 2015 Magnet redesignation, with a focus on empirical outcomes demonstrating exemplary professional practice, transformational leadership, structural empowerment, and new knowledge, innovations, and improvements in professional nursing practice.
Magnet® recognition is considered the “gold standard” of nursing excellence world-wide. According to the ANCC, “consumers rely on Magnet® designation as the ultimate credential for high quality nursing”. Magnet® is considered the “gold standard” for nursing excellence throughout the world. We are proud to be the only Magnet® hospital in the Charlottesville area.
