A Daemen College Think Tank Grant-supported study was conducted as a collaborative academic-practice study. An Appreciative Inquiry method was used to assist nurse leaders at a community hospital who participated in the process of earning Magnet Designation to identify organizational strengths as well as a vision for the future. Participants included nurses, nurse leaders, nurse administrators, nurse educators, and nurse practitioners to gain a better perspective. Nurse leaders were interviewed to identify the unique strengths and achievements experienced as a Magnet Designated organization. Inductive content analysis was used to identify themes from the interviews. The themes which were identified included teamwork, a sense of community, a nurse's perspective, and future visions. The identified strengths experienced by the nurse leaders also provided a vision of the future.
