Mary Ann Donohue-Ryan

PhD, MA, NEA-BC, RN

Magnet®

Dr. Mary Ann Donohue-Ryan has been a pioneer in the early Magnet® movement: She contributed to the foundational Magnet standards in the early 1990s and was one of the authors of the first written application at the second facility in the nation (the first after the University of Washington) to receive ANCC Magnet designation in the United States.

Dr. Mary Ann Donohue-Ryan has been a pioneer in the early Magnet® movement: She contributed to the foundational Magnet standards in the early 1990s and was one of the authors of the first written application at the second facility in the nation (the first after the University of Washington) to receive ANCC Magnet designation in the United States. A speaker at the very first national Magnet Conference and presenter for many national Magnet and local conferences,  senior leaders throughout New Jersey asked Dr. Donohue-Ryan to create formal and informal mentoring programs that could assist them in their individual journeys to Magnet designation. As an active member and future president of New Jersey State Nurses Association (NJSNA), Dr. Donohue-Ryan worked with organizations to develop their unique self-assessment methods that became known as the first gap analysis tools. The reflection of success led to invitations to help other organizations across the country to form Magnet gap analysis initiatives within their own facilities. This occurred at the local and regional level in New Jersey and then extended to other states across the country, and she began to receive recognition in the literature; in research (Cheung & Aiken, 2006; Kramer, et. al., 2007) and quality journals (Lundmark & Hickey, 2007), and in a textbook (Barker & Sullivan, 2006). Subsequently, Dr. Donohue-Ryan consulted with hospitals in the United Kingdom and Singapore, leading to the first international Magnet designations in the U.K. and in Asia. Dr. Donohue-Ryan served for two terms on the ANCC Institute for Credentialing Innovation Governing Council and she was credited with having originated early Magnet research communities. In New Jersey, she instituted Journey to Excellence workshops while president of NJSNA to stimulate sharing of best practices.

Since 1995, Dr. Donohue-Ryan has served in progressively advanced clinical and nursing leadership positions, including Magnet® program director, director of professional practice and most recently, chief nursing officer at three organizations, leading two of them to their 4th (Englewood Health) and 5th (Jersey Shore University Medical Center) Magnet® designations, respectively.

Her passion is strengthening decision making at the unit level, building intra-professional teams, developing strategy and practical goal setting business plans, and leading innovation for patient as well as staff satisfaction initiatives. Dr. Donohue-Ryan is a capable team leader, and is known for being an advocate for the frontline clinical nurse, who unequivocally endorse her for her advocacy, leadership and inspiration to pursue the highest patient- and family-centered outcomes.   Astute in organizational leadership, Dr. Donohue-Ryan is well well familiar with bargaining unit negotiation and the coordination of mutual goal setting toward successful designation in a union environment. In addition, Dr. Donohue-Ryan has a track record of obtaining philanthropic grant funding to achieve nursing strategic goals such as increased national board certification rates, reducing unexplained absences by 25%, and staff nurse representation at national conferences. Dr. Donohue-Ryan helped to implement a new EMR in her last facility, earning highest marks for nursing involvement and metric compliance as well as video monitoring units and unit-based intraprofessional shared governance teams.
