Press Ganey’s take on ANCC: Energized and ready for change. Now what?

The last two years have been challenging, pivotal, and eye-opening for nurses and their leaders. Needless to say, there was a lot to take in at the 2022 ANCC Magnet Conference in Philadelphia. Here are four key takeaways we can’t stop thinking about.

  1. Hospitals with Magnet® designation are seeing higher rates of nursing engagement recovery than non-Magnet hospitals. Magnet hospitals have demonstrated improvement in nurse retention by up to 10%, resulting in annual savings of up to $2.6M. Be on the lookout for Press Ganey’s in-depth report on this, available soon.
  2. Nursing engagement is fundamental to successful patient outcomes. Furthermore, each percentage of improvement in RN turnover can save the average hospital an additional $262K per year. Keeping your finger on your organization’s pulse has never been more important. Press Ganey’s On-Demand Pulse offers ANCC-compliant capabilities, including robust data collection, reporting, and analytics.
  3. A hospital with empowered nurses empowers everyone, which is why products like Press Ganey’s NDNQI® have become central to the success of nursing teams across the country. NDNQI offers insights that are easy to share with your team. The result? A nursing organization committed to quality and patient outcomes.
  4. Strong nursing leadership is critical to a hospital’s operational success. The pandemic has created a significant shortage in nursing leadership, and a successful staff nurse does not always make an effective leader. Research shows that leadership onboarding and orientation programs are not providing nurse leaders with the knowledge and skillsets they need to successfully manage their departments. Press Ganey’s new Nursing Leadership Academy offers two programs to help your organization prepare nurse leaders and executives for today’s challenging environment. Both programs support the pursuit of nurse leader national certification.
