As a blueprint, the MRP standards can be instrumental in helping you shift your nursing culture from complacency to excellence. You can start with a few nurses who have a passion for excellence.

Familiarize yourself with the MRP, talk with a few MRP program directors/CNOs at MRP-designated hospitals, attend a conference or workshop if finances allow, and become knowledgeable about the standards. You’ll soon see that there are aspects of the work you do well and others that you may not have in place or that need some work. You don’t have to complete a formal gap analysis to determine what to do next.
