Teresa Anderson brings 33 years of nursing experience to her consultation practice, including formal academic education, staff development, advanced practice, nursing leadership, and quality performance improvement. She served as the Magnet® project director for a large hospital system for six years. Those six years of Magnet project management experience, along with nine years of ANCC consulting experience, equip her with the skills needed to assist staff in identifying and navigating the economic, political, and philosophical barriers encountered within their organizations as Magnet culture change occurs.
Teresa’s in-depth analysis and application of the past five versions of the Magnet Recognition Program® Application Manual provides historical context and insight to organizations seeking Magnet status. She is a facilitator of numerous ANCC workshops, including the Journey to Magnet Excellence®, Magnet Program Director, Shared Governance, Peer Review, and custom workshops as requested. Teresa’s enthusiastic presentation style and genuine joy in the practice of nursing combine to assist organizations in engaging staff members to create a nursing culture of excellence.
