Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Networking among hospitals was viewed as vital by both nurse leaders and research council leaders in order to enhance hospital based nursing research programs. To achieve this goal, a consortium was formed in 2004 to collaborate on nursing research activities. Research representatives from six hospitals came together to begin the consortium. Each of the organizations participating were already Magnet or working towards Magnet designation. The primary purpose of the consortium is to act as a resource to research councils as they navigate the Magnet process. Additional benefits include sharing of educational programs and research strategies. The consortium meets quarterly at rotating sights so as to better highlight each organization. Meetings consist of networking, sharing research highlights and an educational feature. The sharing of successful strategies among the members of the research consortium has created an atmosphere of collegiality and has fostered the mentoring philosophy endorsed by Magnet organizations. Celebrating the successes of consortium members contributes to the energy and momentum of this team. The consortium continues to welcome new organizations seeking Magnet designation to become part of this dedicated group.
