Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Keeping the Spirit Alive: Magnet Excitement after Designation Problem: Keeping the Magnet spirit alive after designation can be challenging. Magnet designation is the beginning of the journey, not the culmination. Raising the bar in all areas of nursing is the goal of Magnet facilities. Continued nursing involvement and excitement is necessary to accomplish this. What is the best approach to stimulate the imagination and excitement of the nursing population and keep the spirit alive after designation and empower all Magnet nurses along the way? Purpose: Effective communication techniques are one approach to increase awareness and excitement about the continued Magnet Journey. The purpose of this presentation is to outline the goals, development, implementation and evaluation of communication techniques utilized in one Magnet facility. Development of Program: To involve nursing at all levels and keep the Magnet spirit alive, several new approaches have been taken. A nursing newsletter, annual report, website, Magnet agenda items at all nursing meetings and unit based Magnet bulletin boards all with the focus on excellence in nursing and aligned with Forces of Magnetism have been implemented. Evaluation and Results: Due to the ownership by the staff, the communication efforts have proven to be a catalyst for dissemination of information and an increased involvement of the bedside staff nurse in Magnet Activities, improved communication amongst all caregivers and improved staff nurse satisfaction. Through improved communication, the staff has shown a continued excitement for the Magnet Journey.
