Characteristics of the planning process for 213 hospitals participating in Phase 1 of the Strengthening Hospital Nursing Program (SHNP) are described. Differences in planning between the Phase 2 implementation sites and those sites not selected for continued funding are explored. Factors associated with positive planning outcomes among participating hospitals are delineated. The use of the SHNP planning process as a model for other hospitals is suggested. This article is Part 2 of a 3-part series on the planning process within the national Strengthening Hospital Nursing Program. Part 1, contrasting single and networked hospitals, appeared in the May issue of JONA. Part 3, which examines interdisciplinary differences, will appear in the July/August issue.
