Successful Magnet Designation – Case #4442
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 December 2014, an action plan was developed for a focused effort to move forward with desired deliverables.
In December 2014, the Nursing Excellence Project Management Plan (NEPM) for submission of Magnet® document on 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.
