Inside best practice: Blueprint for excellent

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, November 22, 2010

Editor’s note: The following is an excerpt from an article by Meryl Montgomery, RN, MSN, director of the Learning Center at the Medical Center of Central Georgia.

There are many reasons an organization is unable to apply or formally pursue Magnet Recognition Program ® (MRP) designation. The CNO may not be familiar nor supportive of the MRP or you may be in transition with your CNO, the financial situation is tenuous, the gaps between current state and standards are too numerous and wide to readily address, or nurses are not supportive of such a journey. Whatever the reason, if applying for MRP designation is not in your immediate future, striving for nursing excellence and trying to become an organization that “epitomize(s) quality and professionalism” (Preface 2008 ANCC MRP Manual) is not outside your reach.
