Harnessing the strengths of nurses empowers them to  transform an organization’s environment, outcomes and culture. This presentation will discuss the drastic change in outcomes surrounding the recruitment and retention of empowered bedside nurses. Interviews of new graduate RNs were transformed to a transparent depiction of the work to be done and a vision of how that RN could build nursing excellence in the organization. Recognizing the enthusiasm of the bedside nurse to learn more, get involved, and participate in change required changing pre-requisites for classes and roles that previously focused on years of experience or education levels. This organization decreased its turnover from over 25% to 7%. Performance on nurse engagement surveys in the recent 6 years has outperformed benchmarks in all categories, while over 40% of RNs are under 3 years of experience. Engaging this workforce was essential to the Magnet journey at this organization. Engaging and appreciating the RNs while at the bedside can initiate vast differences in perceptions of RN effectiveness and a nurse’s enjoyment in their career. Knowing they can transform healthcare delivery and initiate culture change from the grass roots promotes retention to the organization.
