The original MagnetTM research study from 1983 first identified 14 characteristics that differentiated organizations that were best able to recruit and retain nurses during the nursing shortages of the 1970s and 1980s. These characteristics became the ANCC Forces of Magnetism that provide the conceptual framework for the Magnet appraisal process.
Described as the heart of the Magnet Recognition Program®, the Forces of Magnetism may be thought of as attributes or outcomes that exemplify excellence in nursing. The full expression of the current 14 Forces of Magnetism is the requirement for designation as a Magnet facility and embodies a professional environment guided by a strong and visionary nursing leader who advocates and supports excellence in nursing practice.
