Abstract:
Our goal was to capture the excitement and energy that surrounded staff during our Magnet appraisal and continue this momentum for the next four years. Immediately following our site visit, we conducted a comprehensive evaluation of our Magnet preparation process. This evaluation included structured focus groups with nursing leaders and councils. Each group was asked to outline what went well and opportunities to improve for the three phases of preparation: preplanning/application phase, documentation phase, appraisal/site visit phase. Another evaluation method was an anonymous survey. This survey was available online as well as printed. All staff (leaders, nurses and non-nursing departments) were encouraged to complete the survey. The information from the focus groups and the survey was collated. The results showed seven obvious themes that were echoed throughout the feedback. The seven themes were: education, communication, continued readiness, showcase nursing achievements, methods to track stories/data, unit level activities, and the Magnet Champions role. The results were validated by staff and these themes became the starting point for the next phase of our journey. These themes have been used to guide our four year plan for our next Magnet designation. Many new and exciting activities have been started to enhance staff engagement. Education and communication plans have been developed to meet the identified needs. Mock surveys and Magnet rounds were implemented and staff continues to celebrate their success by showcasing their achievements. Of course, the final and most significant feedback came from ANCC when we were re-designated as a Magnet organization.
