Christiana Care Health System Wins 2018 ANCC Magnet Prize®

October 29, 2018 10:30 AM | Christina Marconi

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) announced today that Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, DE, is the recipient of the 2018 ANCC Magnet Prize®, sponsored by Cerner, a global leader in healthcare technology. Christiana Care received the ANCC Magnet Prize for its use of virtual reality (VR) technology to improve the patient experience in the chemotherapy suite. The process is two-fold. Nurses use VR as part of pre-chemotherapy education, providing an immersive learning experience to familiarize patients with what to expect. The goal is to decrease anxiety and increase preparation for the first day of treatment. The technology is also used to provide a positive distraction while patients receive chemotherapy. They can relax on the beach, view scenic attractions, or surround themselves with nature’s beauty.
