Crozer-Keystone’s Center for Nursing Excellence hosted a “Magnet Mixer” on Nov. 10 at the Drexelbrook Corporate Events Center in Drexel Hill. More than 100 nursing leaders from throughout the health system gathered to view research poster presentations as well as discuss a range of topics, including:
- Outstanding nursing council achievements
- Moving CKHS Nursing Excellence forward
- Clinical advancement program
- Patient and family education
- Nursing sensitive indicators.
Crozer-Keystone submitted its first Magnet application to the American Nurses Credentialing Center in February of 2011. The reviewers did not grant a site visit, but the health system’s nurses are working to resubmit for Magnet status in October 2012.
