Journey to Magnet Excellence
What Magnet Institutions Stand For
The organizations that have achieved Magnet Status have ethical and professional responsibilities to contribute to patient care, the organization, and the profession in terms of new knowledge, innovations, and improvements
Defining Magnet:
A magnet hospital is a healthcare facility that is identified as having exceptional nursing standards as well as a quality work environment for nurses
Hospitals and other facilities apply for the status through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program (MRP)
If the facility meets the criteria for the status, based upon the ANCC's 5 components of magnet recognition, and pass a site evaluation visit, they receive the recognition of Magnet Status for a period of four years
Facilities that are Magnet Certified must submit monitoring data after two years, as well as re-certify their Magnet Status every four years
(ANCC 2013)
Foundation & Background of Magnet
Magnet is the leading source of successful nursing practices and strategies worldwide
Advantages & Perceived Disadvantages of Magnet status
Are there disadvantages to Magnet?
Not that we can think of...
Studies assessing links between the work environment for nurses and the patient safety climate find Magnet hospitals experience:
-Increased patient satisfaction
-Decreased mortality rates
-Decreased pressure ulcers
-Decreased falls
-Patient safety and improved quality

How about all of the advantages?

A growing body of research indicates that Magnet hospitals enjoy:
Increased RN retention and lower nurse burnout
-Decreased RN vacancy rate and
RN turnover rate
-Increased RN satisfaction

Magnet provides a multiyear framework for quality improvement and a structured means to engage staff in decision-making. This serves as a helpful tool for new certified nurse educators or those looking to energize and motivate their teams. Team building, collaborating across disciplines and building staff engagement while difficult to quantify, are often results of the Magnet process

Understand the background of Magnet Certification
Describe forces and main components behind Magnet recognition
Explain benefits of Magnet Status
Magnet status is not a prize or an award. Rather, it is a credential of organizational recognition of nursing excellence (ANCC 2013)
During the 1980's, there was a significant nursing shortage and turnover at hospitals. Nurse leaders observed that some hospitals were better able to retain nurses and fill vacancies compared with similar hospitals in the same labor markets (Kelly et. al. 2011)
A study by the American Academy of Nursing, AAN, in 1983 identified 41 hospitals that acted as "magnets" for nurses because of their more supportive work environments (Kelly et. al. 2011)
There are currently 393 facilities worldwide, which includes approximately 7% of all registered hospitals, that are recognized with Magnet Status
The Magnet Recognition Program was developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in 1993
This program serves as the gold standard for nursing excellence and provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark for measuring quality of care
Components of the Magnet Recognition Program
#2 Structural Empowerment
Strong professional environment in which nurses can expedite the institution's core values and vision while achieving desired outcomes
Outcomes are achieved through a facility's strategic planning, policies and programs offered. and structure within the institution as a whole
#3 Exemplary Professional Practice
Nurses autonomously provide competent and consistent patient care as well as take an interdisciplinary approach with the entire healthcare team and the families of their patients
#4 New Knowledge, Innovations, & Improvements
Magnet organizations have an ethical and professional responsibility to contribute to patient care, the organization, and the profession in terms of new knowledge, innovations, and improvements
This Component includes new models of care, application of existing evidence, new evidence, and visible contributions to the science of nursing.
#5 Empirical Outcomes
Magnet-recognized organizations are in a unique position to become pioneers of the future and to demonstrate solutions to numerous problems inherent in our health care systems today
The facility may demonstrate excellence through innovative structure and various processes, and they ought to be recognized, not penalized, for their inventiveness
#1 Transformational Leadership
Transformational leaders must listen, challenge, influence, and affirm as the healthcare industry makes its way into the future
These leaders should be leading the creation of a vision for the future, and the systems and environment necessary to achieve that vision
(ANCC 2013)
Improve Patient Care, Safety & Satisfaction
Attract & Retain Top Talent...
Foster a Collaborative Culture
Advance Nursing Standards & Practice
Magnet provides a road map for excellence in nursing and can serve as a framework for organization a hospital nursing delivery system that elevates performance all around
Just kidding.
Smaller facilities might not be able to afford the application process. However, they could still be an outstanding provider if they just adopt some of the principles and strategies behind the FORCES of MAGNETISM.
