Margaret L. McClure In this program, nursing legend Margaret L. McClure, EdD, RN, FAAN, will chronicle her own leadership journey, one that continues to propel professional nursing forward by creating the changes necessary to achieve the safest and most effective care. Her inspirational story will begin with her best-known contribution to the literatureâ€“a study entitled "Magnet Hospitals: Attraction and Retention of Professional Nurses"â€“which she co-authored under the auspices of the American Academy of Nursing. She will also discuss work that has already been done regarding this subject, and conclude with a discussion of her current work. Her work will create a seamless educational path for new nurses entering the profession, in support of the Institute of Medicine and Robert Wood Johnsonâ€™s initiative: The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (2010).
By facilitating an understanding of enlightened self-interest, Dr. McClure will imbue participants with strategies that facilitate "big picture" thinking such as the importance of (a) using scientifically generated evidence in all areas of practice, including nursing education; (b) using new technologies for communication, education and clinical practice to the extent that they expedite the goals of safe and effective care; (c) developing and implementing standards for continuing professional development throughout oneâ€™ s career; (d) employing reflective approaches to practice, constantly learning from both successes and failures; and (e) actively engaging in policy-making activities in the work place and at the state and national level.
