Abstract

Mount Sinai Medical Center (MSMC) in New York City has long recognized the value of nurses and nursing. The hospital established one of the first nurse training schools in the United States in 1881. The nursing staff has continued its distinguished reputation in the healthcare community. In 2004, Mount Sinai earned designation as a Magnet® hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). And in 2009, Mount Sinai became the first full-service hospital in New York City to earn redesignation of the prestigious ANCC Magnet Award for an additional 4 years, from 2009 to 2013. Magnet designation is considered the gold standard for nursing excellence—only 8% of hospitals in the United States have earned this designation.
