Nursing at the NIH Clinical Center

2024 Is The Year of Magnet®

Magnet® recognized organizations demonstrate excellence in nursing practice, high quality patient outcomes and exceed robust benchmarks for the safety of patients. Nurses in Magnet® accredited organizations collaborate with interprofessional teams to create an environment of excellence, as well as strive to elevate their practice through evidence based care, professional development and leadership.

Magnet® recognition affirms the compassion, quality and dedication that we strive to offer patients and families at the Clinical Center. We look forward to each step of our journey as we continue to serve our patients and the bio-medical research community.
