Magnet Re-designation Update
AAMC received an additional documentation request from the ANCC Magnet Office this week. This request for additional documentation is not unexpected and it is not bad news. The vast majority of hospitals are asked for additional information. We are confident in our ability to effectively address all of the requests and advance the process forward.
There are several stories that will need some revision or new evidence provided. Karen McCamant, Director of Professional Practice and Magnet, will be working closely with our Magnet consultant to make these revisions and submit them to the Magnet Office by the deadline of March 22, 2019. After that, our likely timeframe for the appraiser site visit would be about eight weeks, which would be late May or early June.
