Minneapolis—March 2, 2022—Walden University and HealthLinx are jointly providing a 2022 Magnet® Program Director virtual workshop, “Spring Training for Magnet® Program Directors,” from April 5–6, 2022.

Walden University and HealthLinx MPD Spring Training Online Workshops“Walden University is dedicated to providing continuing education and professional development opportunities for nurses throughout various stages of their careers,” says Dr. Tracy Slemp, dean of Walden's College of Nursing. “This new workshop will help Magnet® Program Directors enhance their knowledge of their role and responsibilities as they lead their healthcare organizations in demonstrating a culture of nursing excellence in pursuit of a successful Magnet® designation.”

The workshop will feature sessions that will take a deep-dive into the new Magnet® Manual and related updates from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for 2022. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from expert-level, experienced Magnet® leaders, and to participate in an interactive Question and Answer session with these experts at the end of each day.

“This is an exciting opportunity to engage Magnet® Program Directors across the country with intricate details to help guide their organization’s Magnet® Journey,” says Gina Boring, HealthLinx executive vice president of nursing excellence. “This workshop is a great opportunity to bring this group together to hear from leading experts who have been in their seat before and can speak from past experiences and provide critical updates to the current climate. This is a really unique way for MPDs to truly understand the finer details and necessary steps to achieve these recognitions.”

As an added incentive, attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 8.25 contact hours. Each registrant for the workshop will receive access to all sessions taking place over both days.
