Nurse Researchers Available for Interviews at Annual American Nurses Credentialing Center Conference

Cedars-Sinai's dedication to excellence in nursing is being celebrated at the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) National Magnet Conference® taking place in Chicago from October 12 to 14.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center earned its sixth consecutive Magnet recognition in April 2023 and is one of only 608 of the nation’s more than 6,300 hospitals that currently hold this designation. During the conference, the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program, considered the highest national honor for professional nursing practice, will present Cedars-Sinai nurses with the award during an on-stage recognition ceremony.

David Marshall, JD, DNP, RN“Cedars-Sinai’s 23 years of Magnet recognition are the result of our institution’s daily commitment to excellence in human caring,” said David Marshall, JD, DNP, RN, senior vice president, chief nursing executive and James R. Klinenberg, MD, and Lynn Klinenberg Linkin Chair in Nursing in honor of Linda Burnes Bolton. “We eagerly anticipate the recognition at the conference and the opportunity to share some of our nursing strategies during this influential gathering for nurses.”

In addition to the recognition at ANCC, Cedars-Sinai nurse-scientists will present innovative research and discuss clinical advances throughout the national conference.

Nursing experts will be available for interviews on a wide range of topics, including nurse-driven innovative tools, geriatric care, and nursing professional development strategies.
