    A Model for Nursing Excellence 

    Receiving Magnet recognition for the third time in a row is a great achievement for Inspira, as it continues to proudly belong to the global community of Magnet recognized organizations. Less than 500 U.S. health care organizations out of more than 6,300 hospitals in the United States have achieved this recognition. Only 207 hospitals have been designated three times, that’s about 3.5% of hospitals nationally.

    Inspira also earned special recognition from the ANCC, including two formal “exemplars.” The Executive Committee of the Commission on Magnet recognized Inspira’s senior nursing leaders for being highly visible and for inspiring a clear mission and vision for the organization, and for the excellent team work among members of the care team. Formally, the commission recognized Inspira for two exemplary practices.

    These exemplars place Inspira among the best of Magnet Hospitals.

    • Care of stroke patients
    • Commitment to nursing research, specifically the number of studies conducted by clinical nurses and the network’s dissemination at national forums.



     
    Similar to the Magnet Model for Nursing Excellence, Inspira Health Network places Patient Outcomes at the center of the work we do everyday.

    Structural Empowerment: 
    Inspira Nurses are empowered to take an active role in improving practice. Our nurses participate in Shared Governance Councils, pursue advanced academic degrees and are nationally certified in their specialty areas.

    Exemplary Professional Practice: 
    Inspira Nurses collaborate with a variety of healthcare providers and services to improve patient care and ensure exceptional patient outcomes. Care is tailored to ensure and safe and satisfying patient experience delivered in an environment designed to attract and retain the best clinical nurses.

    New Knowledge, Innovations and Improvements: 
    Inspira Nurses are supported in their efforts to continually identify and implement emerging best practices.  When answers to clinical questions cannot be found in the existing literature, Inspira Health Network offers nurses the support and mentorship to design and complete nursing research studies which contribute to developing an evidence base for novel practice improvements. 

    Transformational Leaders:
    Inspira Nursing Leaders participate at the highest levels of the Health Network’s leadership structure ensuring that nurses have a voice both at the bedside and in the board room. Inspira’s organizational Keys to Success connect front line patient care staff to the organization strategic plan through five key pillars of organization excellence.
