Abstract:
Preparing for their 3rd Magnet designation, nurses evaluated their professional practice model to ensure it was still aligned with contemporary practice. As a result of self-study, they agreed to take on the challenge of refining it. First, they faced a strategic decision. Should they adopt an existing nursing theory as their practice framework? Or, should they uncover the professional model already deeply embedded in their daily practice? Intent on preserving their excellent practice culture, staff nurses opted to unearth the deeply buried values and beliefs serving as the cornerstones of professional nursing in their organization. Presenters describe refining the model from the ground up, using the twelve essential building blocks they discovered through ten formal focus group interviews. Colaizzis method was applied to analyze transcribed audiotapes and identify themes. The result was a professional practice model grounded in their own practice. As an authentic depiction, the model quickly resonated with nurses across all specialties. The model has two unique features. First, it defines a healthy environment as a condition of professional practice. Second, it includes both patient and nurse outcomes of professional practice. Nurses share experiences in illustrating, validating, and disseminating the new model. Storytelling was a valuable back door approach that helped staff see how the model was already alive in their practice. Nurses describe the evidence included for Exemplary Professional Practice in Source of Evidence EP 1. The project led to an innovative partnership with graduate nursing students who verified the analysis as a research course assignment.
