For nurses, an American Association of Critical-Care Nurses Beacon Award signals a positive and supportive work environment with greater collaboration between colleagues and leaders, higher morale and lower turnover. The Beacon Award includes bronze, silver and gold levels so that a unit can chart its excellence journey over time. Beacon Award recipients receive a three-year designation. Multiple Sentara units have achieved and maintained this validation of excellence.
Sentara Nursing collaborates with The DAISY Foundation™ in all divisions for a way to express gratitude for nurses who provide compassionate care. The award is in honor of extraordinary nurses, leaders and teams to ensure they know how deserving they are of society's profound respect for the education, training, brainpower, and skill they put into their work, and for the empathy, compassion, and understanding with which they deliver care.
The Magnet Recognition Program® recognizes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing. Magnet® recognition has been included as a criterion for national hospital ranking and quality benchmarking programs.
