Magnet hospitals have more satisfied nurses and a better patient experience
The Magnet Program
The Magnet Recognition Program® of the American Nurses Credentialing Center is the most prestigious distinction an organization can receive for nursing excellence.
The Journey to Magnet Excellence™ impacts quality, service, and broader organizational performance metrics. Magnet hospitals attract top nurses, have more satisfied nurses, lower turnover, greater nursing autonomy, and a better patient experience.
Magnet recognition is a rigorous, multi-year undertaking and only 8% of U.S. hospitals earn this distinction. Not surprisingly, though, hospitals that embrace Talogy’s evidence-based approach to hiring nurses are much more likely to achieve this important recognition. More than 25% of the hospitals that fully embrace this methodology have earned Magnet recognition. More than three times the national average!
How Talogy’s healthcare solutions support the journey
The competencies that matter
Nurses and nursing leaders at hospitals on the Magnet journey focus on a different set of requisite behavioral skills. They care about advanced competencies including autonomy, collaboration, communication, emotional intelligence, leadership, innovation, and adaptability. We build these into the hiring process, targeting candidates with these skills. Nurses at non-Magnet hospitals tend to focus on more fundamental competencies like dependability and accountability. In these situations, we support leadership’s vision to push the organization toward higher expectations.
Just as nurses provide care based on objective data, research, and evidence, hospitals can take a similar approach to hiring nurses who will support their culture. Research and validation studies continue to demonstrate that this approach consistently identifies nursing candidates who will succeed and who’s values are in line with the organization.
Identify and develop nursing leaders
Strong, effective, transformational leadership is core to the Magnet mission and journey. Talogy’s leadership expertise and tools help the organization focus on the right leadership skills and take a deliberate approach to identifying and developing front-line and executive level nursing leaders.
