Nursing

Inside the program: Rules of engagement

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, August 23, 2010

To engage direct care nurses, nurse leaders need to follow four basic rules:

  • Be transparent with your staff at all times.
  • Ensure accountability for improvement at the unit and staff nurse levels.
  • Give your staff the tools to succeed.
  • Continually “reward and recognize” improvement.
