Inside the program: Creating a development plan

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, December 6, 2010

Create a development plan that works for your hospital. Keep it simple and concise so that it gets used. Some elements that a typical development plan should include are:

  • Identification of the skill or competency under focus
  • Activities to be completed; dates of completion for each activity
  • Benefits to the coachee, unit, organization
  • Demonstration or application of skill or competency (how, when, and who will observe).

Everyone should have a development plan since everyone has areas in which they can grow, even if it is already an area of strength.
