SE - Structural Empowerment

SE4EO: That the organization has met goals for improvement in professional certification. Graphically summarize at least 2 years of data to display changes over time. Include participation of nurses in all specialties.


Two goals were identified for one-year periods only

From the graphic display, the goal of at least 10 nurses being certified from 2010 to 2011 was not achieved as there appeared to be slightly fewer nurses certified in 2010 (13) then at the starting point in 2009 (14)


The data was reanalyzed to include the total number of nurses certified during each year. The original submission included additional nurses certified instead of total nurses certified.

Modification to the data included

  • The entire calendar year of 2010 was used for baseline data (instead of July 2009 through June 2010).
  • The data was also extended to include the calendar year of 2012

Goal: Increase of 10 nurses per calendar year for 2011 and 2012 to achieved specialty certification

For a list of nurses with specialty certification please refer to Appendix SE4EO-A
