For Nurses - Pathway Designation

The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Pathway to Excellence designation recognizes the essential elements of an ideal nursing practice environment.

The designation substantiates the professional satisfaction of nurses and identifies best places to work. A Pathway to Excellence organization is committed to nurses, to what nurses identify as important to their practice, and to valuing nurses’ contributions in the workplace.

This designation confirms to the public that nurses working in a Pathway to Excellence organization know their efforts are supported. The award invites other nurses to join their colleagues in this desirable and nurturing environment.
