It is with great joy and excitement that I write this blog.
Today the American Nurses Credentialing Center again named Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin a member of the prestigious Magnet Recognition Program. This was a unanimous decision by the Commission on Magnet.
This morning a large group of direct-care nurses, multidisciplinary staff, and leaders huddled in a crowded conference room anxiously awaiting a call from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. There was so much excitement in the room when the phone rang. Once we were told that we retained our Magnet status, the crowd just erupted into applause and cheer as the conversation was played out on a speaker phone.
