American Nurses Credentialing Center Pathway to Excellence®

The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Pathway to Excellence® program illuminates the essential elements of a successful nursing environment in order to achieve optimal patient centered care. The credential is granted to healthcare organizations that create work atmospheres where nurses can work efficiently and flourish. To qualify, organizations must implement specific Excellence standards into their operating systems and policies. Many HCA hospitals have received ANCC Pathways to Excellence designation. Implementing these standards provides a sturdy foundation of nursing practice leading to higher retention rates and better patient outcomes.
