Have you seen the extended Magnet video? Experience the phone call, the celebration, the emotion, the pride.
Dozens of AAMC staff, mostly nurses, are gathered in a room. At the front sits our CEO, Tori Bayless, COO/CNO Sherry Perkins, and Magnet Coordinators Holly Greever and Rita Linnenkamp. Everyone’s smiling ear to ear. We’re waiting on a phone call.
“Hello?” says a friendly voice. It’s Deb Zimmerman, President of the Commission on Magnet. “Are you ready for me to begin?”
The room goes silent and everyone leans forward in their chairs, cell phones and cameras are ready.
A minute later, everyone is on their feet, cheering and clapping, celebrating the news that AAMC has been accredited as a Magnet hospital!
If you haven’t seen the extended version of AAMC’s Magnet designation phone call from September 15, 2014, watch it here.
It includes Deb Zimmerman remarks, as well as congratulatory messages from Tori, our physician partners, and Sherry’s “What is this Magnet you speak of?” speech.
Hear what your colleagues have to say after hearing the news of our Magnet designation: “It brings us closer together,” “This is a great place to be a nurse,” “It’s good that we are being recognized for what we do on a regular basis every day, which is practice nurse excellence.”
During the last few seconds of the video, you can hear Sherry’s overhead page to nurses working that evening, announcing the news of our designation. It’s guaranteed to make you smile.
