Pathway to Excellence Designated Organizations

The Pathway to Excellence is a mission of the ANCC to recognize hospitals and other health care organizations where Nurses can excel in their career.

To be considered for Pathway to Excellence designation an organization must meet 12 practice standards. Pathway designation can only be achieved if that organization’s nurses validate the data that from an exhaustive review process. A nurse can absolutely trust that a Pathway organization will respect nursing contributions, support professional development and nurture optimal practice environments.
