Abstract

This qualitative descriptive research aimed to examine the perception of professional nurses on becoming a magnet hospital. The informants consisted of 16 professional nurses. The research instruments were composed of a recording form of demographic data, a semi-structured in-depth interview guide, a recording form of interview transcription, a tape-recorder, notebook, and pen. Data were collected from February to December, 2014 and were analyzed using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and content analysis.


The research results revealed that the perception of professional nurses on becoming a magnet hospital could be classified into 4 main categories:- 1) definition of magnet hospital: clients attracting, personnel attracting, and happy working of personnel; 2) participation in preparation for a magnet hospital: proud feeling and participation in various activities; 3) the effects of transition during a magnet hospital preparation: both positive and negative feeling; and 4) problems and obstacles in preparation for a magnet hospital: inadequate personnel number for workload, unclear and discontinuous communication, and elusiveness of a magnet hospital standard.


This research suggested that the administrators should pick an important data regarding a magnet hospital and present using interesting and clear techniques. Additionally, they should set policies to reduce professional nurse workload and recruit personnel appropriately.
