Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The journey to Magnet had begun the impetus to change the hospital systems culture to one that strongly supported education. Approximately 73% of nurses in Arizona held an Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN). Nursing leadership and Human Resources developed a plan to provide education to all interested staff and change the culture of the healthcare system. To increase the number of BSN-prepared nurses, the organization put in place structures and processes to create a culture of professional development for all staff. Senior Leadership increased tuition reimbursement, created a system for loan repayment, and established collaborative relationships with local schools of nursing in order to support RNs who wished to pursue a BSN. In addition to Senior Leadership support for education-related resources, the Board of Directors was in favor of allocating additional funding for education, given the known benefit of higher RN educational levels to patient outcomes. The Chief Nursing Executive and the Vice President of Human Resources collaborated to develop partnerships with local universities and nursing schools to make classes available on the hospital campus. Two RN-to-BSN programs, two MSN programs, a DNP program, a specialized OR training program, and an LPN-to-RN Bridge program were developed and implemented. In addition to providing classrooms and laboratories for instruction, the facility also provides clinical instructors. Assistance is available for education planning, both financially and academically.
