Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Creating a Magnet culture requires program development that strengthens professional nursing practice. In 2003 a Credentialing Committee began working to establish a credentialing and privileging process for Category Two practitioners - Advanced Practice Nurses (APN) and Physician Assistants (PA). For the first six months, the Credentialing Committee focused on the credentialing process for employed APNs; this included a plan for primary source verification, development of organizational policies and a privilege form. Next the Committee adapted the medical staff bylaws to reflect the credentialing process and all changes were submitted for approval by the Medical Staff Credentials Committee, Medical Executive Committee and the Governing Council. Partnering with the Medical Staff President and other key physicians from the beginning of the process ensured the support of the necessary committees. After the main components were finalized, the membership and charter were completed. The first meeting was held in February, 2004. The initial product the Credentialing Committee developed was an application packet that included an instruction checklist, application guidelines for completion, a clinical privilege form, supplemental forms, and the physician-nurse collaborative agreement. Since its inception additional products have included an orientation handbook, guidelines for a Peer Review Process, an interview process, reappointment process, revision of scope of responsibilities and privilege forms, a resignation process and a process for new hires. The Credentialing Committee has been instrumental in facilitating the credentialing and privileging process for employed APNs and PAs. Based on its' success it recently was restructured to incorporate non-employed APNs, PAs and nurses. References: Quigley, P. Hixon A.K., Janzen S.K. (1991).
