Inside scoop from our experts: Defining roles of a project director

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, September 9, 2008

This week, a reader asks about the responsibilities of a Magnet Recognition® Program project director. Read the response below from our advisor Gina Boring, RN, MSN, NE-BC, ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® director at Aultman Health Foundation in Canton, OH.

Q: What responsibilities does a Magnet Recognition® Program project director have?

A: Having a dedicated Magnet Recognition® Program project director (MPD) provides another layer of commitment to the journey. Every organization designs its MPD job description differently; however, the responsibilities are frequently similar and the following are a few basic roles the director performs:

  • Informs nursing and nonnursing departments about the program by providing educational sessions
  • Creates an environment that’s committed to achieving an MRP culture through celebration, continuous communication, and education
  • Chairs the MRP steering committee and unit champion meetings
  • Serves as a resource regarding the 14 Forces of Magnetism and interpretation of sources of evidence
  • Prepares the written documentation
  • Prepares the organization for the site visit
