Magnet recognition status speaks to MD Anderson's strength and commitment in providing superior services

Our patients receive care from the most highly qualified and committed nurses available. Studies show that the nursing care in Magnet-recognized facilities contributes to lower general and disease-specific mortality rates and higher patient satisfaction.

Our nurses are recognized, rewarded, respected and supported for their clinical practice excellence. We create and sustain an environment where nurses grow professionally, control their oncology nursing practice and participate in all levels of the organization.

Our community colleagues within and outside MD Anderson Cancer Center are our partners. Through collaboration, we maximize our contributions to our patients, their families, professional organizations and community.
