The Journey Continues

A busy summer has transitioned into an even busier fall for the many members of the BWH community already involved in our journey towards Magnet® designation. In the coming months, more BWH colleagues will have the opportunity to become actively involved in this exciting venture.

In June and July, the BWH Magnet® Writers’ Group convened and began meeting on a weekly basis to begin the task of preparing the formal documentation that will support our Magnet® application.

The Magnet® Executive Steering Committee met in late August for a progress report on application work accomplished to date.

In early October, a large contingent of BWH leaders and frontline staff will represent the hospital at the 2016 ANCC National Magnet Conference® in Orlando, Florida. Colleagues from Nursing, Patient Care Services and Patient Access Services will attend conference sessions and keynotes that will broaden their knowledge of the Magnet Recognition Program® and equip them to help spread the Magnet® message.
