Abstract:
Paper Presentation: As hospitals enter upon the Magnet journey, one of their preparation activities is to collect data on the characteristics of their RN workforce, such as RN hours per patient day, percent of care hours provided by RNs, and percent of care hours provided by agency or contract RNs. Hospitals also assess and enhance opportunities for professional development, including education and certification. This session describes how the characteristics of the RN workforce change during the two years prior to Magnet recognition. It will also describe how Magnet-recognized hospitals sustain or improve the characteristics of the RN work force during the first two years after recognition. Data for this analysis came from a national, longitudinal database with information on 90 Magnet facilities. As appropriate for a longitudinal study with continuous outcomes, a linear mixed model was used to model trajectories of hospitals with regard to RN staffing characteristics. Use of a random effects model accounts for the correlation between observations of the same hospital at multiple time points. The results include information on hospital characteristics, such as size, teaching status, rural/urban location, and case mix index, which have a significant relationship to achieving, maintaining, and improving excellence in RN staffing. This session will provide valuable information to Magnet applicants and Magnet-recognized facilities on the patterns of achieving and maintaining all of the characteristics of an exceptionally qualified RN workforce.
