- Author(s): Wickline, Mary
- et al.
Knowing the nursing community, & synchronizing the library’s mission with the hospital’s advances the use of library resources and evidence-based practice. Magnet accreditation provides a natural framework for collaboration. A focus on organizational mission statements and a proactive approach to getting on the team—using their language, getting out of the building, and working in their comfort zone to directly support and address top needs—leads to positive outcomes for both nurses and the library.
