Abstract

Engagement in health care has gained in importance over time. It has become increasingly important in the work that nurses do to optimize patient involvement in the management of their health care activities. Nurse leaders are being called upon to build and sustain cultures of engagement for their employees and ultimately for patients. The purpose of this article is to share an engagement process that has proven successful at a community-based academic medical center that has received Magnet designation. While engagement remains a multifaceted process for all parties involved and requires a constant focus, the authors have focused on 3 key areas to increase registered nurse engagement. These areas include professional development, autonomy, and leadership access. Each area is addressed with specific strategies that were utilized to achieve success.
