PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to identify the facilitators and barriers for health care organizations to sustain Magnetism.
RATIONALE/CONCEPTUAL BASIS/BACKGROUND: Nursing executives are challenged to lead complex organizational systems to fulfill the multitude of regulatory, customer, and staff expectations and provide excellence in nursing practice and the work environment. Recognition as a Magnet Hospital by the American Nurses Association Credentialing Center is the gold standard for acknowledging excellence in nursing practice and the work environment. Certification and continuing re-certification as a Magnet Hospital demonstrates a health care organizations commitment to building systems that support excellence in nursing practice that are critical for quality patient care despite an environment in which the nursing shortage has emerged as a crisis and is projected to worsen.
METHODOLOGY: The research design is qualitative, using open-ended data-generating questions. A national convenience sample of twenty chief nurse executives (CNOs) was selected from the total number of credentialed Magnet Hospitals and they were invited to be interviewed. Data from each interview will be formatted for analysis sentence by sentence. A sample question that elicited sustainability was "Please describe some keys that led to the sustaining of magnetism in your healthcare organization." The data will be analyzed through the use of narrative analysis.
RESULTS: Fifteen Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs) interviews have been completed and five more scheduled. Data analysis is in progress and will be completed by April 2010. A trend identified in the interviews is the commitment and leadership of the highest ranking hospital/system executives: the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Nursing Officer for sustaining Magnetism.
POTENTIAL IMPLICATIONS: It is believed that the findings will contribute to nursing and healthcare executives' armamentarium to inform practice and drive policy for organizational development and leadership upon initiation of the Magnet journey and beyond. Knowledge of facilitators and barriers to sustainability will further contribute to the design of evidenced based organizational systems and programs supporting excellence in nursing practice.
