  • The Center for Nursing Clinical Excellence

Through achievement of national and international nursing designations such as Magnet® status and Pathway to Excellence®; tracking, trending and improving nurse sensitive indicators; recognition of nursing; and shared governance, The Center for Nursing Excellence guides you to improve patient outcomes.

Clinical Excellence

We never settle.

At Baylor Scott & White, 95% of our eligible facilities are designated or officially on the journey to designation status. Our senior leadership team expects all of our facilities to earn the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet status or Pathway to Excellence designation.

Pathway to Excellence

Granted by the ANCC, the Pathway to Excellence designation recognizes healthcare organizations for healthy work and positive practice environments where nurses can excel. Designated organizations demonstrate excellence in nursing practice and leadership through collaborative interdisciplinary professional practice, low turnover and vacancy rates, and high job satisfaction.
