How Our Products Help You Become a Magnet Hospital

Five components make up the ANCC’s Magnet Recognition Model: Transformational Leadership, Structural Empowerment, Exemplary Professional Practice, New Innovations, and Empirical Quality Outcomes. Together they serve as a framework for assessing hospitals seeking Magnet status and—more importantly—drive the future of nursing practice.

Each of our four solutions can support organizations of any size throughout their Magnet journey—from infrastructure changes to data gathering to application submission. How?

  • Care standardizationLippincott Procedures disseminates the same procedural standards to ALL nurses in your facility, ensuring consistently high skills and collaborative care.
  • Improving outcomes – Lippincott Solutions content is regularly updated so your nurses have access to the latest standards, guidelines, and procedures. The teaching resources Lippincott Learning and Lippincott Blended Learning include topics and lessons covering not only clinical care, but also leadership, orientation, safety, and more. Plus, patient teaching resources, such as those in Lippincott Advisor, are known to reduce patient readmissions, a key metric for any hospital.
  • Saving time - Minimize the amount of data gathering you need to demonstrate achievement and free up nursing staff to see patients, upgrade skills, promote the benefits of Magnet status, and more. All our solutions offer single points of access to their content. Both the Lippincott Learning and Lippincott Blended Learning can integrate with your Learning Management System (LMS). And the patient handouts of Lippincott Advisor can be linked to a patient’s EMR.
  • Data-driven – Data is crucial for maintaining care standards, identifying areas for improvement, implementing new staffing infrastructure, and collecting evidence for your Magnet application. With Lippincott Blended Learning, for example, managers can track compliance of competency standards.
  • Aligned with Magnet/ANCC Standards - All procedures in Lippincott Procedures are reviewed for their adherence to Magnet Recognition Program components. Online courses in the Lippincott Learning also maintains with ANCC guidelines.
