The Magnet Project Director: Driving Excellence

Gina Boring
Executive VP Nursing Excellence

The Role and Responsibilities of the MPD

Launching a successful Magnet Journey® begins with several key requirements. At the top of this list is having a dedicated Magnet Project Director (MPD), an engaged Magnet Steering Committee and a solid plan for completing a “hard” gap analysis. These three essential components will be explored individually in a three-part series that begins here with a discussion of choosing the right MPD to guide your journey.

Selecting an Effective MPD

Whether the candidate for this role comes from within the ranks of your facility or you cast a broader net to recruit from outside your organization, there are several important considerations. First, choose an MPD who is fully aligned with the culture of the organization and is both knowledgeable about the lines of communication and respectful of them.
