Schneck 2 North Inpatient Unit Earns National Award
June 01, 2018
Schneck Medical Center’s 2 North inpatient medical-surgical unit has been awarded the prestigious AMSN PRISM Award. The award recognizes only those medical-surgical units that consistently demonstrate exceptional nursing practice, effective leadership, a healthy practice environment and evidence-based, positive clinical outcomes.
Schneck is only the second medical-surgical unit in the state of Indiana to achieve this national honor.  There are less than 30 medical-surgical units nationally to have achieved this honor.
Co-sponsored by the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) and the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB), the AMSN PRISM Award stands for “Premier Recognition In the Specialty of Med-Surg.” The AMSN PRISM Award exemplifies the qualities that define excellence in medical- surgical nursing and is a symbol of Schneck’s journey to optimal outcomes and exceptional patient care.  
The AMSN PRISM Award identifies sustained excellence in six categories and Schneck scored at the advanced level in all six categories which included: recruitment and retention of competent staff members, evidence-based practice, positive patient outcomes, healthy practice environment, lifelong learning of unit staff members, and effective leadership.
“2 North at Schneck is a solid unit in all areas, and very deserving of the AMSN PRISM Award,” stated the Academy. “The professional nurse is responsible for the individual practice, but it takes a dynamic, energetic, and committed group of professionals working as a team to achieve and sustain outstanding patient outcomes and high staff satisfaction.”
“This award demonstrates the compassion and commitment of our 2 North medical-surgical nurses to provide high-quality inpatient care,” said Venetia Green, Director of Inpatient Nursing Services at Schneck. “There are over 5,500 hospitals in the nation and to be one of only 30 recognized is truly remarkable.”
