In 1980, during the last major nursing crisis, the American Academy of Nurses (AAN) identified a group of hospitals that seemed unaffected by the national nursing shortage. They were able to provide adequate nurse staffing when most hospitals were struggling to do so. The AAN coined the term "magnet" for the hospitals' ability to attract and retain nurses.
