Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Turnover rates of 25%, vacancy rates of 12% coupled with high agency usage and hospital bed closures supported by poor cultural survey results which highlighted over 56% of nursing staff stating they often thought of leaving the organisation, became the catalyst to implement organisational change. The Magnet Recognition Program (MRP)provided the framework by setting the benchmark to transparently evaluate structure, practice and quality of care. This presentation will highlight the importance of leadership and management in creating a culture which attracts, retains and focuses on building our nursing work force to meet future healthcare needs. It will highlight how the MRP program has provided the structured framework to achieve these results and share the implemented strategies and tools to ingrain a Magnet culture. A culture in which over 220 staff voluntarily completed the Re-designation document and prepared the organisation for the opportunity to showcase their contributions to the nursing profession during the site visit. It will demonstrate statistically significant outcomes from strategically aligning feedback received from cultural surveys within all levels of service planning throughout the organisation . It will examine the impact that a newly developed unit has had in providing strategic direction on issues identified from the cultural survey. Finally the results of the 2009 Cultural Survey and Magnet Re-designation Evaluation will be shared.
