Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Learn how Magnet nurse leaders formed a partnership with their State Nurses Association to develop a statewide Magnet Hospital Consortium. The Consortium is dedicated to the formation of a synergistic agenda and the achievement of outcomes in support of nursing excellence. ABSTRACT: Magnet Nurse leaders, in partnership with the state's nursing organization leaders, created a statewide Magnet Hospital Consortium. The Consortium supports synergistic efforts to develop a statewide nursing agenda. Chief Nurse Executives and Magnet Program Directors provided the vision and brought participants together. State Association (SA) leaders helped develop the Consortium's purpose and structure. Magnet Champions brought their ideas to a model that would positively impact the nurses of their organizations and the state. Fifty-nine participants from Magnet Hospitals in the state came together for the first time in March 2007. The first meeting encouraged enhanced networking and offered informational sessions on nursing education initiatives and workforce development. Evaluation data revealed that 82% of participants strongly valued the opportunity to network; 81% thought workforce development was a high priority. The Consortium meets biannually. The opportunity to host meetings is rotated among facilities. Plans include developing initiatives to retain nurses within the state and sharing data on nurse sensitive indicators, staffing, position vacancies, and patient safety initiatives. Data will be shared to create a profile of Magnet Hospitals in the state. Magnet Champions share creative approaches to healthy work environments, evidence based practice and shared governance. The Consortium has prioritized developing a research agenda, exploring inter-organizational outcomes. The SA is providing helping to advance this agenda with foundations and other non-profit organizations. The partnership of Magnet Hospitals and the SA has resulted in early tangible outcomes. A communication vehicle for the state's Magnets has been developed on a micro-site on the SA's website. This site provides a vehicle for Consortium members to share accomplishments, promote networking and encourage collaboration. Consortium members offer venues for presentations by the SA, providing membership recruitment opportunities. The Consortium is a vehicle to further statewide understanding of the importance of Magnet status to patients and nurses. This will be strengthened soon by a Commending Resolution in the legislature. The transformational leadership of Consortium leaders in the development of a Magnet Consortium supports a statewide initiative that exemplifies Magnet ideals. REFERENCES: Bailey, D. & Koney, K.M.
