This is an exciting time to be a part of UofL Health Care Nursing, as we work toward obtaining Magnet™ designation. The Magnet™ Program is a national initiative developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to recognize healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice. Patients rely on Magnet™ designation as the ultimate credential for high quality nursing.
UofL Health Care Nursing is a perfect candidate for this designation. Our nurses positively impact people’s lives in countless ways, from dealing with the small things that nevertheless mean so much — such as remembering our patients’ birthdays — to making the critical decisions and masterfully coordinating complex care programs designed to help patients heal as quickly as possible and regain control of their lives.
UofL Health Care nurses are far more than caregivers:
- We are advocates for our patients and families.
- We are mentors and educators.
- We are partners with other healthcare providers.
We are proud to be UofL Health Care nurses. We demonstrate this each and every day as we strive to live up to our motto, words that we believe should truly drive our profession — “Excellence Defined.”
“Nursing excellence is not only defined by clinical proficiency, although I think that’s how many of us have thought of it in the past. Nursing excellence is also defined by supporting the patient and family fully through the healing process — by being the ear that hears their story; the eyes that see any changes or clinical problems; the voice and hands that serve to comfort. As nurses, we are expected to fill many roles, but these are the most critical ones to our patients and families.”
