Staff Members Make Presentation

BERLIN – Colleen Wareing, Atlantic General Hospital’s (AGH) vice president of patient care, and Jeanette Troyer, the hospital’s clinical excellence coordinator, presented at the Maryland Nurses Association’s annual convention held at Anne Arundel Medical Center this fall.

The presentation, titled “The Brass Ring: Common Goals Towards Enhanced Outcomes,” outlined AGH’s evolution to a shared governance model that includes the valuable input of nurses and other front line staff in their strategic planning processes for new services or improved care delivery.

For the past three years, Wareing has helped lead the journey towards Magnet Recognition, improving continually on existing processes, implementing new strategies of engagement and integrating a collaborative model towards improved patient outcomes.  She attended the Wharton Nursing Leaders of the Future Program and was recently recertified as a Nurse Executive, Advanced.

As the clinical excellence coordinator, Troyer is responsible for guiding AGH toward excellence through the use of components found within the Magnet Recognition Program.  She recently served as a co-presenter at the national conference for the National Association for Rural Mental Health.
