Magnet Recognition is the sign of a high-quality hospital, and these three resources can be an integral part in healthcare organizations being awarded, and maintaining this designation.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 05, 2015
For years, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) has awarded its prestigious Magnet Recognition Program credential to hospitals and other health care organizations that go the extra mile to meet ANCC standards in the criteria of quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice. Springer Publishing Company, a leading and innovative publisher in nursing and beyond, is pleased to offer four titles to aid readers seeking certification for their organizations: Project Management for the Advanced Practice Nurse; Building and Sustaining a Hospital-Based Nursing Research Program; and Introduction to Quality and Safety Education for Nurses: Core Competencies.
Said Joe Morita, Senior Acquisitions Editor, Nursing at Springer Publishing Company: “Magnet Recognition is the sign of a high-quality hospital, and these three resources can be an integral part in healthcare organizations being awarded, and maintaining this designation. We are fortunate to have such highly-qualified authors.”
Written by Carolyn Sipes, Project Management for the Advanced Practice Nurse is the first resource specifically for graduate-level nurses and students seeking to effectively perform the duties of a project manager – a skill often lacking in nurses, despite their similar skills in managing patient care and outcomes. Based on proven project management principles, the text defines concepts specifically for APNs and APNs with a DNP degree, and enables them to apply processes used in the business operations side of a health care organization. The book skillfully ties the skills of a seasoned project manager, advanced practice nurse, and nurse educator together to take the reader through all phases of the project management process in a complex health care work environment, from start to finish through tools integrated throughout the text.
Building and Sustaining a Hospital-Based Nursing Research Program, from editor Nancy Albert, is the first resource to present the “nuts and bolts” of creating a successful nursing research program in a complex hospital environment. Written by experienced clinical researchers who have successfully implemented these techniques in the Cleveland Clinic, the handbook shows nurses how to build and sustain a research program—a fundamental requirement for Magnet Recognition. The book demonstrates, step-by-step, how leaders and staff can integrate nursing research into their workflow, providing a framework for developing horizontal and vertical structures that promote the creation of new knowledge and for enhancing the scientific foundation of nursing evidence. With a focus on practical applications, the book addresses the structures, systems, processes, and resources required for creating and maintaining a research program along with methods for its evaluation.
Introduction to Quality and Safety Education for Nurses: Core Competencies, from editors Patricia Kelly, Beth A. Vottero, and Carolyn Christie-McAuliffe, is the first undergraduate textbook to provide a comprehensive overview of essential knowledge, skill, and attitudes about safety in nursing practice. It reflects the six areas of nursing competencies as developed by the Quality and Safety Education Program for Nurses (QSEN) initiative, which are currently required content in undergraduate nursing programs. Using an inter-professional focus, the book addresses the fundamental knowledge required of entry-level nurses in each of the six QSEN areas: quality improvement, patient safety, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, informatics, and patient-centered care.
