Abstract

This exploratory study uses focus group methodology to examine physician perceptions of Magnet nurses and Magnet designation. No studies have explored physicians' insights, which are becoming increasingly important to implementing and sustaining a Magnet culture. Qualitative content analysis demonstrated that physicians highly regard Magnet nurses and benefit from Magnet status. Key themes emerged related to Magnet nurse characteristics, relationships with physicians, nursing leadership, shared governance, and Magnet as a marketing tool. "Magnet marginalization" emerged as a new concept.
