Morrilton Pathway to Excellence® Update

CHI St. Vincent Morrilton is one step closer in its goal to achieve Pathway to Excellence® re-designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)!

On June 1, 2017, Morrilton nurses submitted the documentation required to substantiate the re-designation of Morrilton as a Pathway to Excellence hospital. On July 31st, we received notification that our written documentation has met the requirements needed to advance to the next phase of the application, The Pathway to Excellence Nurse Survey! The survey phase requires Morrilton nurses to participate in a confidential web-based nurse survey. The purpose of the survey is to expand upon the documentation by asking Morrilton nurses about their perceptions of the workplace environment relevant to the Pathway Standards.

The ANCC Pathway to Excellence® Program recognizes health care organizations for positive practice environments where nurses excel. To qualify, organizations meet Pathway Standards essential to an ideal nursing practice environment. Initially designated in March 2014, Morrilton is Arkansas’ first and only Pathway designated hospital. Currently, there are 153 Pathway designated hospitals worldwide.

Congratulations to the success that has already been achieved by our hardworking Morrilton nurses and we look forward to cheering them onward as they continue through the re-designation process.
