Nursing Careers

Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) is proud to be among fewer than 500 hospitals worldwide who have achieved Magnet® designation for the highest level of excellence in nursing care. The American Nurses Credentialing Center recognized us for excellence in leadership, nurse-physician collaboration, patient satisfaction, evidence-based practice, and commitment to patient- and family-centered care.

Anne Arundel nurses clearly set the benchmark for quality care in our community and beyond, as we have received Magnet® re-designation beginning in 2019.

Patient- and family-centered care requires more than a skill set. It requires a mindset focused on the principles of Dignity and Respect, Information Sharing, Participation and Collaboration. Patients and families are encouraged to be participatory members of the health care team — helping to make decisions about their care or the care of a loved one.


Our nursing quality councils are based on a three-tier infrastructure — unit level, service line level, and organizational level. Each level escalates to the next, allowing for strong communication and collaboration between quality councils, as well as within and between the service lines. Within the councils, nurses formulate their practice questions, conduct literature reviews, review research articles, and create quality improvement projects geared to the specific needs of their patients.


Anne Arundel Medical Center makes career growth and advancement a priority for our nurses. We have a formal clinical ladder program and clinical ladder coaches who can help you assess your goals and guide you through the portfolio and application process. We also offer financial aid and scholarship opportunities, along with in-house seminars, workshops and access to continuing education credits via HealthStream®.
