Pursuing Excellence in UVA Nursing

UVA Magnet Champions are engaged individuals who “champion” the ideals of Magnet Recognition. They serve as designated resource persons who receive Magnet- or PNSO-affiliated information for staff education within their local practice area.  Log in for UVA Magnet Champion resources. Interested in becoming a UVA Magnet Champion? Let us know!

The UVA Magnet Steering Committee is a group of key interdisciplinary leaders guiding our journey toward continuous improvement, excellence in patient care and a healthy workplace. Together with the energy of unit-based Magnet Champions, they help UVA pursue these goals as defined by the ANCC's Magnet Recognition Program honoring excellence in nursing services.
