Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In the initial quest for Magnet designation, our organization established a team of "Champions". The team members were involved in all aspects of the journey: gathering data, writing portions of the documentation, and hosting a Site Visit. After months of intense activity, the Champions breathe a sign of relief, and wait. The phone call comes and you celebrate! So what next for the Magnet Champion? Because Magnet Status is a journey, the energy must continue. Since our designation, the Magnet Champions have remained an active and vital force with ongoing efforts to sustain the forces of Magnetism in our organization's culture. Examples of such activities include a Magnet Calendar inspired by the ANCC 2007 Force of Magnetism calendar. These calendars, illustrating the 14 Forces at work in our organization, were sold to raise money for future Champion activities. Our "Week of the Nurse" awards were revised, with each award representing one of the 14 Forces. Nursing practice domains for self-evaluations in our Clinical Ladder Program and Nursing Performance Appraisals were rewritten based on the 14 Forces. Magnet Champions were given the honor of presenting Magnet pins to newly hired nurses. A committee of Champions is working to produce a professional DVD to be used for Magnet education with new employees and as part of our recruitment activities. Our momentum endures with these efforts. With these activities and more to come, our Magnet Champions are well on their way to successfully helping our organization continue on its Journey to Re-designation.
