Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Magnet designation is the highest international recognition for nursing excellence and for many health care organizations it continues to be a strategic priority. When Magnet is achieved there is an enormous sense of accomplishment but also the realization that a new journey is about to begin. However, a handbook outlining step by step instructions for the years following is not available. A Midwestern medical center was one of the first to submit a Magnet redesignation application under the new 2008 Magnet Model. Existing tools, such as the final Magnet report received at designation and the interim monitoring report help to facilitate the sites four year Magnet work plan. This presentation will highlight how the medical center navigated each year between designations to build exemplars in Transformational Leadership, Structural Empowerment, Exemplary Professional Practice and New Knowledge using the shared governance councils. The written application is just one aspect of the redesignation process. There are many others to consider. The Magnet Advisory Council was critical in developing strategies, such as creating a redesignation theme, to enhance staff education. The Gold Medals of Excellence monthly newsletter was developed as an educational resource to better understand the new model and how the medical center meets various sources of evidence. A tracer methodology was designed and implemented to prepare staff for the Magnet site visit. The redesignation year requires special attention requiring special tools and activities. All of these unique approaches will be outlined to offer assistance in establishing a blue print for redesignation.
