Magnet: Commitment to Nursing Excellence
Billings Clinic is proud to once again be recognized for nursing excellence as a Magnet®-designated organization, joining only 97 other organizations worldwide that have achieved this honor four times. The re-designation process happens every four years.
What is Magnet?
Magnet is the highest honor for professional nursing practice. Only about 7 percent of hospitals worldwide have received the designation through the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program®. Billings Clinic was Montana’s first health care organization to achieve this distinction 16 years ago. Earning this recognition four times in a row puts Billings Clinic among the top 1 percent of hospitals worldwide for nursing.
What is the Impact to Patient Care?
Magnet changes the approach to patient care to be more collaborative and promotes the process of evidence-based practice. As a Magnet organization Billings Clinic supports a culture where multidisciplinary teams work together, making a difference for our patients every day.
