"This designation validates our superior quality of nursing and the positive impact it has on our patients and their families," said Donna Hahn, chief nurse executive for Sentara RMH. "For members of our community, this means they can feel confident that when they come to Sentara RMH they will receive the best possible care available."
A Magnet hospital is one that has met the specific standards set forth by ANCC. These standards define the highest quality of nursing practice and patient care.
"When we began our Journey to Magnet Excellence® in 2010, I am not sure any of us understood how the process would help transform the culture and the continued improvements that we now see as part of what we do here everyday," commented Hahn.
Research shows there are clear benefits to patients and their families who receive care at Magnet facilities, including confidence in caregivers and positive outcomes. The designation is awarded for four years, during which time the ANCC monitors facilities to ensure high standards of care remain intact.
"We are so proud of our team and their continued commitment to provide high quality, patient-centered care to our community," said Hahn.

Chief Nurse Executive Donna Hahn, DNP, RN, NEA-BC and Critical Care Unit Director Martha Schneider, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, both earned their doctorate degrees in December 2013.
According to Hahn, while similar course work is required, a DNP degree focuses on clinical education and improving outcomes for patients, whereas a doctor of philosophy, or PhD, degree in nursing focuses on preparation for conducting research regarding clinical outcomes .
"I was attracted to pursuing a DNP degree because it focuses on, and can directly impact, the care we provide our patients every day," Hahn said. "My degree work focused on issues nurses face on a daily basis in the patient care setting and on ways to improve the patient care experience."
Hahn noted that the Institute of Medicine and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation published a report titled "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health" in 2010 in which they encouraged nurses to pursue lifelong learning opportunities. "I would hope other nurses would see the benefits of returning to school to further their formal education as a contribution to patients," she said.
Hahn joined RMH in 2007 and has 36 years of nursing experience with more than 26 years in nursing leadership.
Sentara RMH offers a variety of support to nurses who decide to pursue advanced education, including tuition reimbursement and scholarships, noted Hahn. In addition, Sentara has its own nursing school for nurses to pursue a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN).
"Nurses within the Sentara system, including Sentara RMH, who have the desire and commitment to move to the next level can get the support they need," she said.
Sentara is currently encouraging all associate's degree-level nurses to achieve at least BSNs. "Nursing research has shown that patient outcomes improve with the more BSN level nurses a hospital system has," Hahn says. "Our goal is to have 80 percent of Sentara RMH nurses achieve a BSN by 2020."
Currently, she said, almost 60% percent of Sentara RMH nurses have BSNs, which is above the national average.
