The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Saint Peter’s University Hospital, New Brunswick, N.J., has been honored with a silver-level Beacon Award from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.
“The Beacon Award is a testament to the extensive training, expertise and patient-centered care that are the hallmarks of our nurses at Saint Peter’s,” Ann Marie Tvedt, RN, nurse manager of the Saint Peter’s NICU, said in a news release. “We are appreciative and proud of earning this recognition.”
The Beacon recognizes unit caregivers who successfully improve patient outcomes and align practices with AACN’s Healthy Work Environment Standards.
The AACN honors hospital units across the country with the three-year award in gold, silver and bronze designations.
The silver-level Beacon Award for Excellence earned by the Saint Peter’s NICU signifies continuous learning and effective systems to achieve optimal patient care. The Saint Peter’s NICU earned its silver award by meeting the evidence-based Beacon criteria for leadership structures and systems, appropriate staffing and staff engagement, effective communication, knowledge management, learning and development, evidence-based practice and processes, and outcome measurement.
The NICU at Saint Peter’s and other Beacon recipients across the country will be featured in AACN Bold Voices, the monthly member magazine distributed to more than 100,000 acute and critical care nurses nationwide.
