Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: In our magnet facility, everyone is considered a magnet champion. To explore beyond the norm in sustaining the momentum of our second re-designation, MOD SQUAD was launched by the magnet team as a fun way to keep magnet always in the staffs mind. The MOD SQUAD is a two or three-member staff nurse team who volunteered to plan, create and implement fun projects based on the sources of evidence. The projects developed are based on the staff nurses passion that coincides with the magnet sources of evidence. The MOD SQUAD is also empowered to present certificate of excellence to nurses or other members of the healthcare team for exemplary practice. The genuine gestures from their colleagues strengthen teamwork and camaraderie in the practice environment. In 2009, projects done by the MOD SQUAD includes: Taste of VA- a lunch and learn project valuing cultural diversity, Pamper Care- a special treatment to our female veterans, Disease Prevention Fair- increase staff awareness on Diabetes prevention and treatment, Star of Hope- where staff provided toys and host a children Christmas party, Yates High School Career Fair staff nurses reached out to senior high school students to consider the profession of nursing, KEEP ( Knowledge Enhancement Education Project) a monthly CE activity and Food Pantry- a call for donation for can goods for the needy. Aside from these projects, many of the MOD SQUAD extends their influence to the community by doing numerous community activities advancing the visibility of the profession of nursing.
