CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NURSES FOR ACHIEVING PATHWAY TO EXCELLENCE NATIONAL RECOGNITION
Pathway to Excellence Award
We are delighted to report that the American Nurses Credentialing Center has awarded Tahoe Forest Hospital District “Pathway to Excellence” designation, often referred to as “Mini Magnet Status” for rural hospitals. In order to earn this national distinction, a thorough review process was conducted documenting quality initiatives in Tahoe Forest’s practices, policies, and culture- creating a work environment defined by nurses and supported by research.
Over 80% of the nurses took time to complete a confidential online survey, prepared by ANCC, to validate our data submission. We were advised that 100% of the nurses who completed the survey responded positively!
The journey to Nursing Excellence has been a meaningful effort. This would not have been possible without the dedication of our nursing staff and their commitment to quality patient care. The support of administration, the medical staff and the encouragement of those championing professional nursing practice has been instrumental in achieving this honor.
Congratulations to our entire nursing staff– this award substantiates the professional satisfaction of our nurses and identifies Tahoe Forest as one of the best places to work and practice.
