Is anyone out there part of a Magnet hospital? Were you involved in the Certification process? Were your nurses keen on making the push for the Certification or did they view it as something everyone else wanted them to shoulder?
We have no magnet hospitals in our state and one of the largest medical centers here wants to be the first. They have had, in the past, an adversarial relationship with their nurses who are unionized as a result.
I'd be interested in any perspectives you can share.
Our hospital is on the journey. We are working on ‘Nurse Autonomy’. What kind of successful strategies have you initiated to enhance this aspect of bedside nursing. I work in an adult setting ICU.
