Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Recognized by the League of American Communications Professionals as a competition winner in 2004, the Nursing Now newsletter is a newspaper format newsletter designed for the registered nurses at a major medical center. It is published bimonthly and distributed to every nurse in every department. The publication's content supports the core strategies of the organization while also serving as the primary vehicle of communication to nursing professionals. Unique to this publication is that the features are "written by nurses and are for nurses". The mission statement for the Nursing Now newsletter is to communicate, educate and motivate nurses towards continued excellence. Features included in the newsletter are written to reflect the intent of the mission statement. The Nursing Now newsletter has been a critical tool in improving the communication and enhancing the quality of work life for nurses. Over the course of the past four years this communication vehicle has become ingrained in the culture. Features have focused on key strategic initiatives such as patient safety, clinical excellence, patient outcomes and quality of work life. The creation of this newsletter started as a four page fledgling issue and has grown to an eight to twelve page professional newsletter with contact hour offerings. This poster will cover the development of this newsletter from its infancy to its award winning present day success- development of a mission statement, work plan, editorial board, production schedule development, content submission process, distribution process, engaging the staff nurses, alignment with strategic objectives and identifying metrics for success!
