Abstract:
(Paper Presentation -abstract of dissertation, Addressing the Nursing Shortage: Establishing the Foundation for Magnet Recognition) Headlines in the press as well as recent personal or family experiences have heightened the public's awareness of the adverse impacts of the nursing shortage. The current shortage is much more complex from those of the past and poses significant challenges to healthcare administrators. Numerous private, government, and regulatory agencies have studied the problem and made conclusions and recommendations for addressing the shortage. This purpose of this study is to provide guidance and advocacy for the use of the American Nurses' Credentialing Center's Magnet Recognition program as a comprehensive and effective approach to creating a culture of nursing retention. The Magnet program is described as an evidence-based approach to addressing the nursing shortage. Numerous studies have described improved nursing job satisfaction and retention, patient satisfaction, improved patient outcomes, and organizational cost savings. The study overviewed the factors affecting RN job satisfaction and retention, the impact of nurse staffing on patient outcomes, and strategies to address the nursing crisis. The literature review served as the basis for proposing ten foundations essential for organizational transformation. The design of the study included development of a questionnaire to validate and prioritize pre-Magnet foundations as reported by Chief Nursing Officers representing Magnet hospitals. Nurse executives were also asked to provide information to establish a Magnet timeline. The findings of the study support the hypothesis that there are key foundations required for a successful cultural transformation to a Magnet hospital environment. Recommendations are directed to the senior leaders of hospitals who wish to embrace an evidence-based management approach for addressing the nursing shortage. In conclusion, this research contributes to the growing body of knowledge concerning Magnet hospitals and provides guidance to healthcare leaders seeking a proven strategy.
