Exemplary Professional Practice

The true essence of a  Magnet organization stems from the exemplary professional practice within nursing. This entails a comprehensive understanding of the role of nursing; the application of that role with patients, families, communities and the interdisciplinary team; and the application of new knowledge and evidence. The goal of this component is more than the establishment of strong professional practice - it is what professional practices can achieve.
