Successful Magnet® Redesignation – Case #3862


The HealthLinx Outcome Driven Process was implemented with a Magnet Redesignation Nursing Assessment and Plan (NEAP) in April 2013. Strengths, Opportunities, and Risks were identified. In June 2013 the Nursing Excellence Project Management Plan (NEPM) was developed and implemented outlining a focused effort moving forward to document submission on February 1, 2014. This six-month plan included determining examples, writing, content editing, copy editing, and publishing the electronic document.

• 3-Day Writing Launch, SOE Review, and SOE Alignment June 2013
• 2-Day SOE Writers Intensive July 2013
• 2-Day SOE Writers Intensive September 2013
• 2-Day SOE Writers Intensive October 2013
• 2-Day SOE Writers Intensive November 2013

The document was submitted on time on February 1, 2014.


Based on the nursing excellence assessment and the very short timeline for writing the redesignation  document, unresolved gaps where identified. Several SOEs identified as at risk for not scoring excellent by ANCC appraisal. An ongoing plan for further development of nursing excellence was put in place to proactively strengthen weak or underperforming areas while awaiting appraiser feedback.
