November 24th, 2010

Students who will soon be graduating with nursing degrees may be interested to hear that Texas’ Medical Center of Lewisville (MCL) has received a Pathway to Excellence designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the Star Local News reports.

The designation is granted to institutions based on the Pathway to Excellence Criteria, through which organizations are subjected to a thorough review process. The results of this analysis revealed high satisfaction among nurses at MCL and identified the facility as one of the best places for healthcare professionals to work.

MCL nurses participate through a confidential online survey.

“This designation attests to the quality and commitment of our nurses at MCL,” says Lynn Benjamin, chief nursing officer at the full-service acute care hospital.

The Pathway to Excellence honor is a public example of the support MCL offers to its nursing staff. The designation also encourages other professionals in the field – including recent nursing program graduates – to join their colleagues at the facility.

According to data provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage of registered nurses who were working in 2008 was $62,450.
