Nurse Achievements and Recognition

Our Care Earns Nursing’s Highest Honors

Children’s National was once again designated a Magnet® hospital in 2015. Only 3 percent of Magnet hospitals nationwide earn redesignation after achieving an initial designation for excellence in nursing and patient care. For our dedicated and skilled nurses, the honor means hard-earned recognition. The Magnet redesignation process occurs every four years.
