Our Pathway to Excellence Journey

The Pathway to Excellence designation is a relatively new American Nurses Credentialing Center Program that recognizes nurse friendly healthcare organizations. Saint Clare's remains on the Magnet Journey, but will first venture down the Pathway to Excellence. The ANCC recognizes that some healthcare organizations like Saint Clare's Health System choose Pathway to Excellence as a bridge to the ANCC Magnet recognition.

The Vision for Pathway to Excellence - "Pathway to Excellence healthcare organizations will be know for creating work environments where nurses can flourish. They will be places identified as nursing practice settings where a collaborative atmosphere prevails with a positive impact on nurse job satisfaction and retention. They will be seen as best places to work because a balanced life-style is encouraged, where nurses feel their contributions are valued as patient care partners in heath care to the community."* To receive the Pathway to Excellence designation, Saint Clare's must meet the 12 practice standards, many of which Saint Clare's already meets.

  1. Nurses control the practice of nursing
