Nursing at Jersey City Medical Center
At Jersey City Medical Center, nursing is not just a profession, it is
a passion. A dedication to superior patient care, a commitment to quality
and a quest for clinical knowledge are the key values shared by the Jersey
City nurses. These values allowed the Jersey City Medical Center to earn

In a dynamic urban academic setting, our nurses use state-of-the-art technology
and collaborate in innovative medical treatment in the provision of care.
Jersey City Medical Center’s nurses are part of an elite and prestigious
team of healthcare professionals who strive for excellence on a daily basis.
We believe that nurses should continue to grow professionally throughout
their career and at the Jersey City Medical Center, we provide our nurses
with many avenues and opportunities to develop new knowledge, skills and
certification in all specialty areas, to pursue higher education and to
continually search for career advancement within the Medical Center.
Nursing at the Jersey City Medical Center is dynamic, collaborative and

The original MagnetTM research study from 1983 first identified 14 characteristics that differentiated
organizations that were best able to recruit and retain nurses during
the nursing shortages of the 1970s and 1980s. These characteristics became
the ANCC Forces of Magnetism that provide the conceptual framework for
the Magnet appraisal process.
Described as the heart of the Magnet Recognition Program®, the Forces
of Magnetism may be thought of as attributes or outcomes that exemplify
excellence in nursing. The full expression of the current 14 Forces of
Magnetism is the requirement for designation as a Magnet facility and
embodies a professional environment guided by a strong and visionary nursing
leader who advocates and supports excellence in nursing practice.
