UF Health Jacksonville has received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing
Center Magnet Recognition Program in 2011, 2016 and looks forward to maintaining
recognition upon the 2020 renewal. The Magnet Recognition Program uses a rigorous
process to certify the best health care organizations not only across the United
States but also across the world. The designation recognizes health care organizations
that provide successful nursing practices and strategies, and signifies high quality
nursing to consumers. Nursing staff at UF Health Jacksonville undergo a lengthy
application and review process prior to each renewal year in order to be considered.
Magnet is only one part of the many efforts of Nursing to continue improving patient
care and collaboration on campus.
As an organization that is committed to nursing excellence, we have embraced the
use of nursing research and evidence-based practices to influence the way that we
conduct our work. We demonstrate our ability to meet the standards
for nursing care related to clinical competency and assessment, education, cultural
diversity and collaboration by using a performance measurement and improvement process.
At UF Health Jacksonville, nurses are the vital link between receiving average care and
receiving excellent care. We are committed to hiring a nursing workforce that wants
to practice autonomously yet in collaboration with the healthcare team. Nurses who
want to improve their practice each day by asking the simple question of "why" are
the nurses we want filling our clinical center units.
