Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The 2008 Magnet Model provides a streamlined approach to profiling the outcomes and accomplishments of re-designating organizations. At our facility, due to the schedule for submitting the Magnet documentation, the choice was ours as to which set of standards we would follow. The team had digested the 2005 manual emphasizing the 14 Forces of Magnetism, yet under sound nursing leadership and the total commitment of the staff nurses, the decision was made to face the challenges of the 2008 criteria. In an eight month timeframe, the organization was able to adopt the revised framework and move forward in the development of a manual that scored in the range of excellence thus earning the privilege of a site visit. Challenges to meeting the goal were revising the infrastructure for interpreting and writing to the new standards and communicating the changes across the two hospital system. However, the benefits outweighed the challenges as we knew the entire team was dedicated to meeting the rigorous demands and that the organization had sustained growth in excellence since the initial designation. On the site survey, the appraisers remarked that what we considered a daily norm by our staff was deemed exemplary and innovative to them. We want to share the key elements of the pathway that was supported by leadership across the organization and lived out by the staff nurses who were inspired and inspiring through the writing of the document and in preparation for the site visit. We will share organizational strategies, and lessons learned.
