The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program® recognizes excellence in nursing. Lurie Children's first received Magnet designation as Children's Memorial Hospital in 2001, making us the first free-standing pediatric hospital in the nation and the first hospital in Illinois to achieve Magnet status. This was the first of five prestigious designations with others to follow in 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2020. Less than five percent of all hospitals have received Magnet® recognition five times
Magnet designation is the gold standard for excellence and quality nursing care. It distinguishes an outstanding environment for professional nursing practice which includes:
A strong nursing governance structure
Innovation and nursing research
Engaged nursing professionals
Lurie Children's employs more than 1,800 nurses, including over 300 Advanced Practice Providers. Nurses at Lurie Children's are committed to providing the highest standard of care based on the knowledge that children are constantly changing individuals who should be encouraged to reach their maximum potential growth and development.
