Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Improvements result when excellence is pursued and when it is achieved. Participants in a national survey of more than 4,000 critical care nurses reported superior work environments and higher levels of satisfaction with their current jobs in units and organizations that have received or are pursuing a Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence and/or Magnet designation. Beacon Awards for Critical Care Excellence are given by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (www.aacn.org/beacon). Magnet designation is given by the American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Recognition Program, (www.nursingworld.org/magnet). The collaborative study was funded and conducted by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, Gannett Healthcare Group, publishers of Nursing Spectrum and NurseWeek, and Bernard Hodes Group, a division of Omnicom.
