The Magnet® Program Director: 

Role, Responsibilities, Hiring & Keys to Success


Wednesday, Nov. 16th
@ 2pm ET

The role of a Magnet® Program Director is like that of a conductor – bringing together the right instruments at the right time to deliver a beautiful result (in this case an exemplary Magnet document). If you’re considering a Magnet Journey, how do you know when it’s the right time to hire an MPD – and what qualities should you look for in a candidate? Or maybe your MPD left and you’re not sure how to proceed? Perhaps you’re an MPD and you’re seeking guidance on the broad scope of work that you are doing – and looking for ways to make sure you’re getting the support you need to succeed in your role.

Whether you are a CNO or MPD, considering Magnet, on your initial Journey, or re-designating, this webinar will provide you with knowledge, concepts, and ideas to support you through a successful journey to excellence, including:

• MPD scope of responsibilities
• Tips for success as an MPD
• When to hire for an MPD if you’re “considering” or just starting out
• What to do if your MPD leaves mid-journey or in the middle of re-designation
