Could we learn something from the US about nursing excellence?

Comment

How much does this cost to implement? What are the identifiable and measurable benefits over any existing local less costly (?) systems? Where in the UK has it been piloted and evaluated? One essential component of nursing excellence is knowing how to express yourself in written English. What on earth does " where we fail to hug it out in the workplace" mean? What is "upskilling of nurses" ? What is such rubbish supposed to mean? By whom - exactly - is this wonderful system "accredited" Magnet itself? American Health Maintenance organisations {in the context of a profit making health system based on health insurance)? Nurses have enough to do already without introducing additional form -filling for no other reason than their employers have been dazzled and seduced by something of unproven and/ or questionable benefit.
