Evaluate healthcare quality measures and their use in diverse populations and settings.
Oakridge Hospital is preparing for redesignation of its Magnet Status, which represents diverse populations in primary, secondary and tertiary settings.
As the clinical analyst for the hospital, it is your responsibility to ensure that all of the collected and submitted data meets criteria to maintain the covenant status. The Board of Directors asked The Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) to give an update on the hospital’s Magnet status and redesignation efforts.

1. Background on Magnet Recognition Program®.

3. Explain the use of hospital, state and national data comparison requirements in Magnet redesignation and quality improvement.
4. Three goals that align to Magnet status with an explanation of how these goals can positively impact the hospital’s patient outcomes.
