Abstract:
While the determination of institutional appropriateness for Magnet accreditation is of vital importance, so is the assessment of readiness for re-certification. Due to the absence of specific tools for re-certification readiness assessment, we invited a Magnet appraiser to speak to the nursing leadership group at our annual planning retreat to discuss the critical elements identified by appraisers during the re-certification process (both in the written document and during the site visit). Following that presentation, a survey document was created delineating seventeen key categories that must be in place for a successful re-designation. A 4-point Likert scale was used to distinguish nurse respondents perception of readiness in these areas. The Magnet appraiser critiqued the survey for content validity. The tool was then downloaded with checkbox survey software allowing computerized completion by nurses on their respective units. While the survey was anonymous, a drop down menu identified the respondents area of practice. From an overall core of nearly 1300 nurses within our institution, a response rate of 46% was achieved. Results were then summarized for each item by area of clinical practice and findings were shared with individual nursing leadership groups. This facilitated action planning for items of perceived weakness. Psychometric tool testing is currently underway. A re-surveying process is planned for May 2009, one year post initial survey use. This will promote the quantification of change in item scores to determine effects of interventions rendered. Our nursing staff have found this tool extremely helpful in planning for our re-certification process. References: Pierson P, Miller J, Moore K (2007).
