Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Disruption due to change and the change process is characteristic of today's hospital environment. This presentation is concerned with not only managing change, but describing how an organization can flourish in the process. To evaluate the process of cultural transformation, it is important to examine the microlevel, direct care nursing. The purpose of this study was to describe the direct care nurses' collective perception of change in the hospital culture after Magnet status was achieved. The design was cross sectional, and descriptive with data triangulation. There was a quantitative phase using a questionnare and another qualitative phase employing focus groups. All RNs who were employed a minimum of 20 hours/week 2 years before and a minimum of 2 years after Magnet Status were invited to participate at each of 2 hospitals in this system. The responses to questions will be presented by percentage of agreement by participants as well as trends in responses. Next randomized focus groups were assembled. Six main themes and thirteen sub themes emerged from this activity: cultural legacy, loyalty, internal processes, serendipitous variables, new traditions, and evolving sophistication. The themes that emerged were supported by the responses to the questionnaires. The presentation will present the results which show the nurses believe there are changes in the hospital culture after achieving Magnet status. Some strategies to sustain/continue the changes from direct care nurses, managers and directors will also be included.
