Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Global issues in health care impact the nursing profession and implore us to put our stamp on the evolving blueprint. Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) are the agents of change, whether in the board room, in councils as mentors, as experts in the development and implementation of evidence based practice, and/or in the community as advocates (Bryant-Lukosius, 2004). The transformational team at our facility utilizes and embraces this model. It is through this integration within multidisciplinary teams that APNs have their biggest impact. ANCC Magnet culture was established to recognize nursing excellence within healthcare organizations. As this accreditation evolved, it became apparent that improved outcomes were associated with the need for more diverse roles in nursing, specifically advanced practice roles, within an institution. This APN-driven model is visible in all areas throughout our organization, as evidenced by our percentage of total APNs versus the national average for Magnet hospitals. Our percentage of APNs is 7.6% compared to the national average of 3.79% of comparative hospitals (American Nurse Credentialing Center, 2010). These APNs function at all levels from staff nurse to Chief Nursing Officer and their innovative approaches are reflected in our superior patient outcomes and nursing sensitive indicators. Through our transformational leadership, APNs have been placed in strategic positions promoting autonomy, providing opportunity for growth and the freedom to develop their roles, including a Professor in Residence and multiple doctorally prepared APNs. Therefore, APNs are positioned to be champions in the ever-changing face of healthcare.
