Drawn to success: the persistent pull of magnet nursing services.

Christine Goeschel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


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.
