As an RN, you’re in the thick of it everyday.

At CentraState, we respect that.

We know that the last thing you need is someone from a mega-corporation coming in and telling you how to do you job. That’s why at Centrastate, you’ll appreciate the freedom of being part of the largest independently run medical center in New Jersey.

Decisions are made right here.
And we value your input.

Our nursing staff is key to everything we do, so we foster a collaborative atmosphere. You’ll be part of a community of experts dedicated not only to helping patients, but also to helping each other succeed.

“Nurses are a part of all decision making. We decide important things for our patients” Loretta I. RN

Magnet Recognition for Nursing

CentraState Medical Center was granted Magnet® status in December 2005 and was designated again in 2012 by The Magnet Recognition Program® of the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Magnet recognition is granted to hospitals after an intensive evaluation based on a wide range of quality indicators and standards of nursing practice.

Magnet recognition is considered the “gold standard” for measuring excellence in nursing and patient care. Of the approximate 5,800 hospitals in the U.S., 6.3 percent hold Magnet designation, and only 3.75 percent have been re-designated as Magnet organizations.

Hospitals must undergo a rigorous application and appraisal process to earn Magnet status. To achieve re-designation, they must repeat that process and also demonstrate further development of 60 separate criteria within the five Magnet model components: Transformational Leadership, Structural Empowerment, Exemplary Professional Practice, New Knowledge, Innovations and Improvements, and Empirical Outcomes.

Research indicates that Magnet recognized organizations consistently outperform those organizations that have not achieved Magnet status. They have better patient outcomes and higher patient satisfaction rates. Magnet recognized organizations are known for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice. They also are found to enjoy increased nurse recruitment and retention rates and higher rates of job satisfaction.

Magnet status is granted for four years. Organizations must reapply to maintain the designation. Please find our annual report here
