Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: At our facility, we dramatically redesigned several processes to ensure good stewardship of Magnet designation. Organizationally, we knew we needed to guarantee nurses at all levels understood what it meant to be a Magnet nurse here. A redesign of Nursing Department orientation and job descriptions using the new Magnet standards was undertaken. By embedding orientation within Magnet, a different model was born. This enabled us to critically evaluate the enculturation process and ask, "Were nurses seeing Magnet from their first moments?" The answer led us to incorporate several key items. For example, to demonstrate Transformational Leadership, onboarding activities were incorporated each day. New nurses meet and converse with the CNO and Vice Presidents, MPD, Nurse Manager, preceptors, and Staff Nurse Leaders from shared governance and resource groups. Topics discussed include: nursing department mission and vision, unit-based quality metrics, unit goals, accessing internal consultants, EBP and research, and what Magnet is and how it lives here. Likewise, the job descriptions were redesigned to ensure they guide nurses at all levels in expectations of working in a Magnet environment. They are organized along the 4 components and each source of evidence with outcomes measurements within each standard. These two changes help us ensure a Magnet culture as a tangible part of our work lives. Explicit in both orientation and the job descriptions is that being Magnet is a commitment on the part of every nurse in our organization. This designation doesn't just hang on our wall, it lives in our nurses.
