Turn to the big screen to show your culture of excellence

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, June 10, 2008

At Virginia Commonwealth University Health System (VCUHS) in Richmond, VA,—an ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® (MRP) recipient in 2006—MRP champions wanted to educate the organization about how staff nurses exemplify the 14 Forces of Magnetism. A 10-minute video that could be shown throughout the organization was the answer.

The champions found an internal videographer who understood VCUHS’ MRP culture and visited nursing units to film and interview staff nurses.

Copies of the video are available on all nursing units for review, and it’s used during nursing orientation to help newly-hired nurses understand VCUHS’ MRP culture. The video is also given to local recruiters who are speaking with student nurses interested in coming to work for the organization.
