COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 1, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Walden University and HealthLinx are jointly providing a 2023 Magnet and Pathway to Excellence Program Director virtual workshop "Back to Basics: Building a Nursing Excellence Blueprint," April 6 and 13 from 12:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. EST.
"Walden is dedicated to the academic advancement of nursing professionals who will improve workplace and healthcare outcomes while advancing health equity," says Dr. Tracy Slemp, dean of Walden's College of Nursing. "This new workshop will help Magnet and Pathway directors enhance their knowledge of their roles and responsibilities as they lead their healthcare organizations in demonstrating a culture of nursing excellence and a commitment to creating healthy work environments in pursuit of Magnet® and Pathway designation. Walden's College of Nursing and ANCC's Magnet and Pathway programs are aligned with the vision of improving patient outcomes, and both organizations recognize the significant impact of nursing care on all populations of patients."
The workshop will feature sessions that are targeted to develop the role of the Magnet and Pathway program director. Each session reviews different foundational elements for these roles and how to utilize data for a successful excellence journey. Attendees will learn from expert-level, experienced Magnet® leaders, and to participate in an interactive Question and Answer session with experts at the end of each day.
"This is an exciting opportunity to help bring back the basics required for designation," says Dr. Kristin Whitehead, HealthLinx executive vice president of nursing excellence. "Our experts are excited to share information on building Magnet and Pathway to Excellence foundations, critical infrastructure for success, and strategies to develop skills as a program director. Programs of excellence have never been more important in nursing and healthcare, as they create and maintain structures and processes conducive to success and engagement."
