Triumphant: Rush nurses honored for excellence

Many nurses go above and beyond their duties, but at Rush, outstanding nursing care is the standard. Rush nurses were recently recognized again for this standard, earning Magnet designation — the highest honor in nursing — for the third consecutive time. Rush is the first hospital in Illinois serving adults  and children to receive this four-year designation three times.

The honor is awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, an independently governed organization within the American Nurses Association. It’s given to hospitals that provide the very best nursing care. The Magnet review  process evaluated Rush nursing using the following factors: quality patient outcomes; innovative, patient-focused initiatives; efforts to improve patient safety; work environment; professional development of the nursing staff; and efforts to reduce turnover.

Of the 5,000 hospitals nationwide, a little more than 370 — approximately 7 percent — have received Magnet designation since the program was established in 1993 — and even fewer have received Magnet three times.
