Successful Magnet Designation – Case #4513

Editorial Staff


The HealthLinx Outcome Driven Process was implemented with a Nursing Assessment and Plan (NEAP) in late October 2014. Strengths, opportunities, and risks were identified. In November 2014, an action plan was developed for a focused effort to move forward with desired deliverables.

In November 2014, the Nursing Excellence Project Management Plan (NEPM) for submission of Magnet® document in June 2015 was implemented. The six-month plan included determining the best examples to demonstrate the culture of nursing excellence, writing, content editing, copy editing, and publishing the electronic document.

  • 3-Day Project Launch, 2014 Magnet® manual review and SOE Alignment November 2014
  • 2-Day SOE Writers Intensive January 2015
  • 2-Day SOE Writers Intensive March 2015
  • 1-Day Virtual Writers Intensive April 2015

The document was submitted on time in June 2015. The organization was notified in September 2015 that their document was accepted and a site visit was scheduled for October 2015.

Magnet® designation was successfully achieved in December 2015.
