Abstract

The director of the Magnet Recognition Program® provides a comprehensive look at the Magnet® Model component Empirical Quality Outcomes. This article examines the importance of outcomes data that the organization already collects and how these should be used. Quantitative benchmarks should be established. These outcomes will represent the “report card” of a Magnet-recognized organization and a simple way of demonstrating excellence.
