It is vital to have support and leadership from the various professional nursing organizations. They advocate for nursing practice in several ways. In one specific way, a secondary group of the American Nurses Association called the American Nurses Credentialing Center, have developed credentialing programs for nurses who are specialized in an area. “The mission of the ANCC, is to promote excellence in nursing and health care globally through credentialing programs”, (About ANCC – The American Nurses Credentialing Center | ANA Enterprise, n.d.). By having the certification, portrays to the community, peers and employers the knowledge and dedication a RN has for her profession.
“The ANCC sets the standards for Magnet Recognition and recognizes hospitals that meet those standards” (Helbig, 2018). To be magnet recognized, an organization must be incorporating nursing research during the nursing process. Helbig (2018) writes, through evidence based-practice, patient outcomes will continue to improve, and nurses will continue to look for and find new methods to provide safe quality care.
