For Nurses

Renown Regional Medical Center and Renown South Meadows Medical Center became the first and only Pathway to Excellence® hospitals in Nevada. Only 87 hospitals out of more than 5,000 nationally have earned the award. Additionally, only 23 states have such designated hospitals, most of which are located on the East Coast.

Pathwaydesignated_hpThe Pathway to Excellence award honors a work environment designed to improve overall nursing satisfaction and improve retention of quality nursing staff. Pathway to Excellence recognizes a number of elements of an ideal nursing practice environment. Among others, they include safety in the work environment, systems to address patient care concerns and nurse recognition.

The honor, granted by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), is based on the confirmed presence of characteristics known as “The Pathway to Excellence Criteria.” For an organization to earn the Pathway to Excellence distinction, it must successfully undergo a thorough review process that documents foundational quality initiatives in creating a positive work environment, as defined by nurses and supported by research. These initiatives must be present in the facility’s practices, policies and culture.
