Nursing at Beaumont

At Beaumont, the mission of nursing is to maintain excellence in professional nursing practice, service, quality and research while promoting the needs of the patients and communities we serve. Nurses at Beaumont strive for excellence that far surpasses other hospitals and health care organizations.

Magnet Designation

The mission is exemplified through Beaumont, Royal Oak and Troy being designated as magnet hospitals by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC.) Beaumont – Royal Oak was the first hospital in Michigan to receive this honor, the highest and most prestigious designation available for the nursing profession.

Our patients also consistently praise our nursing staff for jobs well done.

Nurses as partners in decision making

Nurses at Beaumont are an integral part of a team whose only focus is on providing the finest health care to every patient. They are valued and respected. Their opinions matter. They make a difference - every day. Through Beaumont's Centers of Excellence, which are physician lead and nurse partnered, nurses play a key role in decision making and are active participants in key committees.

At Beaumont, we treat nursing as an academic discipline and profession. Our nurses evaluate their practice for improvements through performance metrics and evidence-based research. Our nurses routinely participate in research activities that expand nursing knowledge and improve patient outcomes.
