Abstract

When leaders of a system decide to pursue Magnet® designation, a required high-stake decision is whether to pursue this designation as a system or individual entities in the system. To assist leaders to make the best decision, the authors evaluate the pros and cons of system versus single-entity pursuit of Magnet status to assist a system chief nursing officer to determine if the risk is worth the gain.
