A letter from AAMC’s COO/CNO, Sherry Perkins 

Dear Nursing Staff, I am beyond proud and delighted to announce that AAMC’s Magnet® document has been accepted by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Our next step will be to welcome the Magnet® appraisers during a site visit. Thank you for your extraordinary knowledge and caring that yielded this visit.  

FAQs re site visit:

When is the site visit and where will it happen? Our site visit will be Monday, July 21 through Wednesday, July 23. Three appraisers will visit all areas of AAMC. 

What will the appraisers want to know? The same appraisers who reviewed our initial document will visit our campus. In their words –they will seek to clarify, amplify and verify what they have read.

How are we preparing? Educational resources are available on each unit – these materials are foundational for our site visit prep.  Information includes detail on “The Big 3”outcomes – quality, patient satisfaction, and the work environment; shared governance; and AAMC’s Professional Practice Model. If you aren’t sure where these resources are kept, please check with your director or educator.

Additionally, similar to Joint Commission prep, we will host a “mock” site visit Wednesday, June 18 through Friday, June 20. We haven’t had a Magnet® site visit and want some prep!

Where can I get more information? There will be much more to come in the upcoming weeks! For more information, please visit our Magnet® website or contact our Magnet® coordinators, or

Thank you all.  Let me know what you think.
