Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: The Magnet Recognition program has been identified as an effective RN retention and recruitment tool (McClure & Hinshaw, 2000). This program is under girded by principle characteristics labeled "14 Forces of Magnetism." One of those forces, Management style, is reflective of shared governance, specifically unit councils. This presentation provides nurse managers and leaders a step-by-step, hands-on approach to implement a unit council. The implementation process discussed in this presentation is a case study, and exemplar of evidence-based nursing. The process begins with a review of the literature and progresses to developing a unit council, inclusive of bylaws, election of officers, problem lists, and formats for council agenda and meeting minutes. The presenters, a clinical nurse manager and staff nurse unit council facilitator, present their unit council's development from real-life experiences. Results of their unit council implementation include increased staff morale and participation in unit decision-making and increased unit staff meeting attendance. Secondary to the effectiveness of the council's functionality, staff nurses now demonstrate a heightened enthusiasm for professional nursing practice, which correlates to the ideology and philosophy of a Magnet hospital. Through activities of a unit council, management style and shared governance can lead to increased collaboration between a nurse manager and his/her staff. This collaboration cascaded into better staff nurse understanding and embracement of the Magnet principles. References: McClure, M. L., & Hinshaw, A. S. (2002).
