Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Achieving initial Magnet designation is one milestone in the ongoing journey toward nursing excellence. This presentation addresses how to prepare for Magnet re-designation, discussing the differences between initial and subsequent Magnet designations and how to sustain momentum and foster ongoing evolution through the four intervening years between Magnet designations. After the initial designation, organizations must turn their attention to how to maintain focus and direction toward re-designation. But how is re-designation different than the initial process? Some components are of the appraisal process are similar, but there are important distinctions that reveal the maturation and evolution that are indicators of a culture of excellence. In addition to responding to specific recommendations from the previous appraisal, successful Magnet organizations must also weave Magnet criteria into the fabric of their organization and demonstrate the sustainability of all of the Forces of Magnetism. ANCC emphasizes the significance of development, dissemination and enculturation. These elements become even more essential as the journey continues toward re-designation. Two Magnet Project Directors who have led their organizations through multiple designations present key lessons learned from their own experience as well as the perspective they have gained from providing consultation and support to numerous organizations on this journey. These presenters address the differences between initial and subsequent designations. They describe how to sustain momentum and to foster ongoing evolution through the four intervening years between Magnet designations. They provide examples that will assist other organizations to prepare for re-designation by addressing strategies for the following essential components of a Magnet culture: Raising the bar on performance; Monitoring growth and outcomes; Expanding programs and engaging the organization; Demonstrating innovation and development; and Advancing the profession through networking and professional contributions.
