These qualities when combined with collaborative interdisciplinary professional practice, promote excellence in health care delivery and enhancement of an organization’s overall health. This page is designed to offer guidance and resources for nurse leaders seeking Magnet® Designation. Current ANCC-designated VHA Magnet and Pathway facilities are listed below.
